(SOUNDBITE) (English) GEERT HEETEBRIJ, WRITER AND CO-CREATOR OF "THE INTERIOR," SAYING:
"We found that the real draw of YouTube and the internet in general is the interactivity, and that ordinary people can get visibility, so we thought it might actually be really cool if unknown people, unknown talent, gets a chance to be in "The Interior," you know? And what would be a liability in traditional distribution, to have a film with no name actors, that's not going to get anywhere, could actually be a plus on the internet, that anybody can become Michael or Bonnie, the lead roles."

(SOUNDBITE) (English) HELMUT SCHLEPPI, DIRECTOR AND CO-CREATOR OF "THE INTERIOR," SAYING:
"I think it's easier for the actor. The actor doesn't need to go anywhere with a car, doesn't need to go through traffic, doesn't need to stand in a long line, doesn't need to go through all that stuff, and then once he's up, he needs to perform right there, with a group of cynical people watching him, probably tired and wasted. It doesn't happen here, they can do it whenever they want to do it, from wherever they are, Big Bear (California), Oklahoma, doesn't matter, everywhere. Just get a camera, put it on you, just read a script, which you can get from the internet, and do it."

"I don't think that it's going to take away jobs, I think it's going to enhance the ability for somebody like myself to be introduced to talent that I can introduce to the community, I think anything that's going to help find a way for somebody to expose their talent is fantastic. I think that again, you have to embrace it, figure out how it's going to work for you."
