It began as this desire to do this science fiction
movie about perhaps one of the last insects left that
nobody's done anything on,
which is the cockroach - and truly one of the most frightening insects.
- Michael O'Donoghue

They just have a feel about them.
And you feel your way through them and you come out
with something that's very powerful and mythic.
And you don't quite know how you got there.
I think this story has a lot of those elements.
- Michael O'Donoghue

Anyway, the title The War of the Insect Gods came before we had that ending,
before we knew they had become gods.
That we knew the evolutionary cycle they went through.
Before we even knew anything about that.
We had an ending.
- Michael O'Donoghue

It's very easy to make insects move.
Because they do move mechanically without the rippling
of flesh as you mentioned.
They move more like real tinker toys and you can make
models of them quite easily.
- Michael O'Donoghue

It's an end of the world I guess.
I guess you'd currently call it disaster movie.
But really they weren't disaster movies.
They were more end of the world movies.
This is more an end of the world movie.

It comes out of a communal experience.

create a thing of beauty.

commentary and then when you get to hear another filmmaker
talk about their films it's a really great experience.
- Jay Roach

The success of the second 'Austin Powers' caught us
by surprise a little bit.
We had decided not to do even a second one,
unless the audience wanted it and we could do something better.
- Jay Roach

I'm not one of these directors, so far,
that wants to have a whole separate director's cut of these things.
So far they've turned out to be kind of the length that they wanted to be.
- Jay Roach

When I'm shooting, really the audience I'm thinking
the hardest about is that first test screening audience
who I want to like the film and that first opening weekend audience.
- Jay Roach

I figure if it's turns out well the film will have
its own momentum and will carry into the video release.
So it's hard to really picture the DVD version when I'm in production.
- Jay Roach

But I couldn't cut that whole septic tank scene out
because the audience liked it so much.
So I sort of fell right back into getting a cheap laugh,
but I still loved it.
- Jay Roach

The DVD does make it a little easier for myself to
trim things that are otherwise very difficult to let loose of -
knowing that they'll make it on the DVD.
- Jay Roach

We had to do the same thing here.
To top that sequel was quite a task.

which got me back into it.
- Jay Roach

- Jay Roach

We collaborate on everything.
I'm involved in the writing and pre-production.
There's a whole bunch of people who keep in touch at
every step about everything.

the musical potential of the Instrument.

unless the script is better than the first one.
- Jay Roach

My biggest role as director on the film is keeping
a sense of the overview -
how to cast the movie and shoot it in such a way that it will cut together.
And how to design the style and tone.
- Jay Roach

I do love DVD and I've always taken them seriously.
You know, on the Austin things, we really put a ton
of work into them because there's so much design involved.
And in this one, we thought a lot about it and what could go in.
- Jay Roach

On the other track I got to talk with Jon Poll,
my editor, and we go into more detail about the decisions
we made in both the production and the post-production.
So I hope the combination becomes something worth collecting.
- Jay Roach

Because I actually find the next take after they've
controlled it a little bit and repressed the laughter
is actually a really interesting take,
because that's still going on underneath the surface.
That struggle to maintain composure becomes part of the joy of the scene.
- Jay Roach

Sometimes I would like the opportunity to do character-driven
comedy and that's really what I was trying to do in Meet The Parents.
I think in a way this is a more old fashioned type of comedy.
- Jay Roach

I love making people laugh.
It's an addiction and it's probably dysfunctional,
but I am addicted to it and there's no greater pleasure
for me than sitting in a theater and feeling a lot
of people losing control of themselves.
- Jay Roach

My favorite laser disk ever was the laser disk for The Graduate,
which had a commentary track that wasn't even the filmmakers,
it was a professor, some film criticism guy who just
happen to be this amazing commentator who went off
into the whole theory of comedy.
- Jay Roach

The commentary track became a lot like the movie and there are some funny,
long, awkward pauses that you can tell we're just trying to find stuff to say.
None of us had gotten to really talk about the movie
until that moment and they were in New York and we were in L.A.
- Jay Roach

As long as we, again, kind of keep earning the sequels
with material and I'm confident Mike can,
I'm in.
You know I always want to do those.
But I also want to keep going in some of the direction as Meet the Parents has.
- Jay Roach

I really enjoy the consolation when I'm having to cut loose stuff I love,
of saying 'Well, at least it will make it onto DVD.'

but couldn't fit them into the film that are on there.
- Jay Roach

But I always reassure them that as far as my contractual rights can go,
I will protect them and make sure that they have approval
over every bit of it so that they know I won't show
something that's embarrassing.

I hope we're all kind of influencing each other now
to keep the quality up on those things.
They seem to be getting better and better and better
as there's not only sort of a film geek audience,
there's also a general interest in the overall film consuming population.
- Jay Roach

You could get in rehearsals, pre-production,
anything that would actually contribute to the understanding of how a film gets made.
I actually find those things increase people's interest
in a movie and like that better than worrying about
showing the tricks behind the curtain.
- Jay Roach

A discussion of philosophy is like a cat chasing its tail -
it may be an amusing diversion but
it has no chance for a satisfying conclusion.

You can not find happiness by chasing after it.
Happiness comes from doing what you love to do,
and from being who you truly are.
- Jonathan Lockwood Huie

The secret to a joyful life is Simplicity -
saying NO to the latest this and the most glamorous that -
saying NO to chasing an overly-demanding career -
saying NO to the stressful demands upon your time and energy.
- Jonathan Lockwood Huie

What if happiness were found in the serenity of simple pleasures.
What if we didn't need the newest gizmo... the highest high?
What if happiness is in the air we breathe...
slowly, deeply, and consciously?
What if happiness is one fresh grape, savored with gratitude?
What if happiness is in our oneness with all creation?
What if happiness is about enjoying life exactly as it comes to us -
without chasing after it?
What if happiness is something we CHOOSE...
regardless of our circumstances?
- Jonathan Lockwood Huie

seat belts before they take off chasing the bad guy in the car...

then your body says,
'Who me?'
