“He said, ‘Sure, we’ll be fine. We’ll rehearse first and then talk about

“He says, ‘Should we cancel it? It might seem a bit rushed now if we do it.”
And I said, ‘Yeah, it’ll be too rushed, let’s cancel it.’
“Thing is, he’d already paid the money for the studio. So, he says, ‘Lets
just go in there and mess around.’ And what did we do? We did the entire movie
in 20 minutes. Every single take! It was so much fun.”
