Interview by Christine Thompson
One of the funniest breakout movies to world-premiere at the Austin Film Festival, “Brave New Jersey” is about the perspective of a group of townspeople in a 1938 rural New Jersey town who believed Orson Wells’s Hoax radio broadcast announcing the coming of Martians – “War of The Worlds.”
We had the chance to sit down with the director Jody Lambert, writer Michael Dowling, actors Leonard Earl Howze, Tony Hale, Heather Burns, Anna Camp, and Matt Olberg.
After the video, hear the hilarious audio interview below of Anna Camp and Matt Olberg explaining what a “Brave New Jersey: The Aftermath” would be like for their characters, who are an engaged couple in the movie. Camp’s character decides to “go for the gusto” when she finds out she has only one day left on earth, and some of the funniest scenes are between her and Olberg, who steadfastly refuses to accept her final word as she tries to terminate their engagement.
