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.

It’s part of our continuing series on film in Milwaukee in advance of the Milwaukee Film Festival, and you can listen to it right now (or right click to download and listen later):
