Tribeca 2013 Interview: A Birder’s Guide To Everything’s Alex Wolff, Katie Chang And Michael Chen

Katie Chang, Alex Wolff, Kodi Smit-McPhee, and Michael Chen in A Birder's Guide to Everything
Want a good taste of what to expect from Rob Meyer’s Tribeca Film Festival entry “A Birder’s Guide to Everything?” Just check out this interview of Alex Wolff hamming it up, Michael Chen geeking out about his birding knowhow, and Katie Chang trying to keep them under control.

The film stars Kodi Smit-McPhee as David Portnoy. While he’s still feeling the effects of his mother’s passing, his father is preparing for his second wedding. David’s only outlet is his passion for birding so when he suspects he spotted an extinct Labrador duck, he and his Young Birders Society friends, Timmy and Peter (Alex Wolff and Michael Chen), take off on a road trip with Ellen and her top-notch photography gear in tow in order to intersect the duck’s migration and snap a picture before it’s gone for good.

After wrapping up a very important business call, the group dished on the audition process, their birding training, and most importantly (and amusingly), the slew of shenanigans that went on behind and in front of the camera, something that undoubtedly enhanced the on-screen group dynamic making the YBS an undeniably loveable bunch.

Check out the gang in action in the video interview below and see the film in full when it screens at Tribeca on Wednesday the 24th at 3pm or Friday the 26th at 6pm.
