Tommy Wiseau Breaks Down a Scene from "The Disaster Artist" | Notes on a Scene | Vanity Fair



hi this is tell me as well I'm creator of the room I will be doing the scenes from disaster arias I did not hit her I did not or Highmark and was created by James Franco and there's a very good job I want to stress that action I did not hit her it's not true it's I did not hit her I did not oh hi mark this is the beginning of a scene we talked about the movie make the movie about the movie in this case the room keep in mind I created this scene 14 years ago actually to be accurate 15 years ago if you want to be accurate actually 17 years ago it was writing the script so this scene is talking about the character Tommy talking about myself he doesn't remember the lon okay okay so they repeat the same scene over and over which is I want to stress that we did not repeat 67 time we actually repeat only I will leave four five times even seventy times way way too much you will never finish your move it action action action action Oh several gun right here which is very cool thing as you know when the sad sometimes actors get afraid in this case James exaggerated with the situation and say okay I don't I don't hear what he's saying which is very cool very very quirky style that I think audience will enjoy that because their natural way without forcing which I enjoy it here in here the action talk in here let me say about detail I always say details are very important in this scene you see the flowers you see the it's a green screen as you notice but that's what happened and on the set the room so they duplicate this scene very much very good so the same scene you actually see in a blurry of the room I don't know you guys notice we use the two cameras on the set of the room we actually use it two cameras that's the fact it's not the fantasy okay why you may ask why but the reason I use the two cameras because at the time of the research and week I couldn't find it any for example what's the difference between HD and 35 so I want to do it I say okay it would be great thing to do the format because no one in the world shot and a feature movie with to format which I was happy about it somebody gave me credit someday never know a lot I think the room is sort of history you know in this case you see very clearly script here what this guy do it question mark sitting on his chair doing nothing he supposed to be script supervisor you should go his fat ass and a healthcare actor not just just sitting here nonsense very bad but again this is my choice I said do your job we pay you to be what you want to be not just a sitting in action I hate her no do you want to change the line no way on the said the room did not happen that way because I was in charge I have my script in my hand actually what you see my pants does I have a script I always carry with me okay sometimes one page sometimes more pages and also I have money to never move that one I don't see any scrip in his hands like even he make mistake he should remove if he has it it's I did not hear I did not so this is very important situation here the time when he say I did not that he's going to this trend like I did not so in this case if I direct this I would say James we need more energy here as well as we need more emotion in the film industry people have tendencies special critique I notice the data on staying that you do not have formula and it seemed works if you have the beginning middle the end so you can do the seniors in monotone you can do the scene as a very emotional and I think emotion is very important I did not oh hi mark but from where are you looking well he say oh hi mark right this is the transition so this is very important he did such a great job so if you look at the original you say wow he much pretty good because on purpose you're the pause between the phrases so here I'm looking at the camera what this is very good quirky thing because he look at the camera I'll be honest with you I did look at the camera not scared to say all actors we all like to do if somebody say he didn't know she didn't he oh she's lying basically action you have a detail here for example water here right look at him he's half sleepy he doesn't care now why he doesn't care because he's a hair i whatever scene does not work that it's a good reaction between these two you can see very clearly they don't watch it he's just disappointed scene does not work look at his posture for exam and they always play opposite if you see it you see what I mean so if for example he is drinking this the way he's drinking if he does it will not be interesting now it's more interest now you're more in detail here you have this one here here and you have wardrobe so we don't see too much but we still see look at who we see the water etc etc we see his watch why we see his watch well he scripts advises I guess he have to look at the watch so so that's basically over here it's not true I did not hit her it's now here the same thing under the character that she played Gregg Devi see he has this battle here he's thinking about mold battle the nation' what he want to do physical in this case I'll invite directives I say take to kill this meaning a limited about you don't have to hold it but typical actor situation here any actors like to hold something because we get nervous maybe he's nervous that's what he hold it so as you notice that daily play Greg go to Tommy and then say okay I will give you this is what actually happened at the set on the room I'm very happy to notice this that actually happen because I very frustrated because actually I hit myself for sure I'm under here on the on the on the edge of the other this little construction thing it didn't hurt now this is like he give you an idea about the the bottle again yeah this is actually an accurate because on the set of the room I say let me throw it something I don't know guys you know but we've Greg we have the game with a we actually play with the bottle we did this at the time when we was stuck in the airport we didn't have a football so we play with a little bottle and together let me tell you it's not easy to catch its own the throw that you okay you can try that throw it do something crazy on the bottle yes that's easy par I don't you know I always say monkey-see monkey-do never mo a lot one these other guys these other people they don't care like you can hear is pretty good statement while he said they don't care on this end of the room we say many times I say many times to gregor's say they don't care this is one of the scene if you watch disaster artist you will see James playing me he confront crew with a recording actually we did record on the set everything and some of the behavior was very disrespectful let's be nice okay yeah you mean you got this show Imam yes okay okay do it here the reaction or crew is right on the money what this means that actually that's what happened to said the room we changed the crew four times for healthy formation not one not wise for okay the reason was for it because people tried to tempt in my vision I be honestly a lot of stuff was new for me okay but somebody tell us I'm sorry we're not on the same page so we let these people go but it's good reaction again this is the thing what people react if they don't like something to do the physical thing action I did not hit her it's not true it's I did not hit her I did not oh hi mark so here it's a great reaction from the crew this is did that happen the room is a style it's not a parody but he could I talk about James team could do that if they wishes but he decided be much more serious and this is my take base what I see the audience they appreciate that because the realest is better they make it just fun of it you know some people everybody it is easy to do all you did a bad job everything's bright and I'm sorry people don't realize if you have a drama let's assume that right any movie they say oh god this is such a great drama I bet you you have something with this comedy it within the drama vice versa if you talk about comedy you have one or two elements as we talked about today you will find it drama – so the room for example is not melodrama it's a comedy large drama all-region are supposed to be drama but let me say one more time it's nothing wrong when you have a comedy with a drama I'm a little rebel here but I love all of you guys and thank you for listening [Applause]
