Just in time for record freezing temperatures, this week April talks to Pitch Perfect 3 director Trish Sie about Bong Joon-ho’s frozen feature, Snowpiercer. They discuss the amazing performance of Tilda Swinton as the authoritative Mason, the commanding directorial style of Bong Joon-ho, and the train car on the Snowpiercer they’d most like to spend time in. Trish also talks about getting her start directing the famous OK GO “treadmill video” for the song ‘Here It Goes Again’ and what it’s like taking over an existing franchise with Pitch Perfect 3. She also shares some fascinating tidbits about the eating habits of polar bears.
Trish Sie’s Pitch Perfect 3 is in theaters now.
And if you haven’t seen it yet, go watch Snowpiercer.
