Interview: Red Flag And Rubberneck’s Alex Karpovsky

Posted by Perri Nemiroff On February - 18 - 2013 0 Comment

Alex Karpovsky is making his way towards becoming a household name courtesy of “Girls,” but he’s also an accomplished filmmaker. In fact, Karpovsky is getting a double feature run at the Elinor Bunin Munroe Film Center for his latest productions, “Red Flag” and “Rubberneck,” via Tribeca Film and the Film Society of Lincoln Center.

He directed, co-wrote, co-produced and stars in “Red Flag,” a comedy featuring Karpovsky as a version of himself trying to deal with a recent breakup while touring the country with an independent film. “Rubberneck” veers towards the darker side, the self-directed production focusing on Karpovsky’s Paul, a scientist working at a small research facility where he struggles with a crush on a co-worker who doesn’t return the sentiment.

With the double feature debuting on February 22nd, Karpovsky sat down to discuss how the pair of films came to be. Having made them both pre-“Girls” fame, he got to work just as any indie filmmaker would, trying to put the productions together using good friends and genuine passion for the material. Check out what Karpovsky had to say about bringing those two wildly different features to life and also a little about his SXSW entry, “Good Night,” as well as a couple of other film ideas he has brewing in the video interview below.
