How do you work with someone you love without killing each other? Whether producing, writing, directing, or acting, the Duplass Brothers have made their mark in the world of independent film and television on the strength of their quirky and empathetic approach to storytelling.
Now, for the first time, Mark and Jay take readers on a tour of their lifelong personal and professional partnership in LIKE BROTHERS, a unique memoir told in essays that share the secrets of their success, the joys and frustrations of intimate collaboration, and the lessons they’ve learned the hard way. – via Broadway World
‘Filmmaker siblings Jay and Mark Duplass grew up making movies using their father’s VHS camera, but it wasn’t until they were in their mid-to-late 20s that their artistic vision really fell into place. Jay remembers one day in particular, when he was “pushing 30” and feeling frustrated with his desire to do the “impossible artist thing.” That’s the day his brother Mark announced that he was going to the store to buy tapes for their dad’s video camera. Jay had to come up with an idea for a movie before he returned.’
