Artist/Filmmaker Andrew Swant
At press time, the music video “What What (In the Butt)” has had over 23 million hits on YouTube. This week on Backstage, Mark Metcalf speaks with Andrew Swant, one-half of the filmmaking team responsible for the viral sensation, about how the internet is changing the way he makes movies, his new documentary about William Shatner’s Gonzo Ballet, green screen filmmaking, working with Frankie Latina on Modus Operandi, his exhaustive ongoing project Hamlet A.D.D. and what constitutes the “young” Milwaukee filmmaking scene.
Backstage with Mark Metcalf is produced with WMSE 91.7 FM at the beautiful downtown studio of the Milwaukee School of Engineering.
