Josh (Mark Duplass), a struggling musician, wins a vintage recliner in an eBay auction. Since he lives in New York and the chair is in Atlanta, this poses a bit of a problem. He asks his girlfriend, Emily (Kathryn Aselton), to accompany him on the trip, and his hippie brother Rhett (Rhett Wilkins) joins the pair along the way. (TDS)


Filmed in Brooklyn, Virginia and Atlanta

Shot on the Panasonic AG-DVX100A

"(The Panasonic AG-DVX100) was a $3,000 video camera that shot at the film frame rate, with warm colours that made it feel like film. Suddenly you could make a great-looking movie for $1,000."
-- Mark Duplass
