A01. HRN-1595 Cam A
Sound Bite: Regina King and Lauren London – what kind of movie it is.
King – Um we’ve been um deeming it as a movie that you can bring everyone no matter what age you are
London – Eight to eighty-five.
King – It will appeal to you. You won’t feel like your parents dragged you or your kids dragged you to the movies.
A02. HRN-1595 Cam A
Sound Bite: Regina King and Lauren London – on family and the holidays.
King – Um I don’t have a big family, um not a little family, but not a big family but I do relate to everybody getting together you know annually we get together. Um it’s probably not as many sparks flying as there were in This Christmas, but I definitely can relate to just needing that feeling of togetherness.
London – Um like I’m the only child but I have a lot of cousins and aunts and uncles so, yes our family is big, full of love, and dramatics.
A03. HRN-1595 Cam A
Sound Bite: Regina King and Lauren London – on motherhood.
King – Oh yeah, well, I mean, you know I’m a mother so I can totally relate to a lot of the things that my mother did when I was younger and I’d be like “oh my gosh” and sometimes now I’m like, “I just sounded like Gloria Darby, yes I did.” (Talks)
London – I don’t have any children yet. I’m sure when I have babies I’ll probably sound like my mother in a lot of ways.
A04. HRN-1595 Cam A
Sound Bite: Regina King and Lauren London – King’s character.
King – Thank you. Um I liked that she had a great arc. She started off one place or um when you see the movie she’s ending one place and makes an arc to a new beginning.
A05. HRN-1595 Cam A
Sound Bite: Regina King and Lauren London – the comedy of London’s character.
King – Um yeah well actually we’ve been calling Lauren the smile of the film.
London – I have all the good comedic phrases, lines, in this movie. I’m kinda like the relief. (Talks) No I think that there’s always one in the family that’s kinda more free, more careless, that’s like “look, someone has to be solid and say it’s not that serious, bring it down, let’s breathe,” and I play that. Which even though it’s not very dramatic it’s very important.
A06. HRN-1595 Cam A
Sound Bite: Regina King and Lauren London – on King’s sense of humor.
King – Um you know I I’m one of those people that always sees the humor in life sometimes it’s I laugh inappropriately you know my son is always like “everything is funny to you” you know like when he’s going through a kid moment you know and I’m like and I’ll make a joke “it’s not funny mom” and I’m cracking up but um yeah I’m one to find the comedy in everything.
A07. HRN-1595 Cam A
Sound Bite: Regina King and Lauren London
King – Um hopefully you’ll be seeing it um next spring. Um right now we’re editing it and trying to decide do we have enough to be a complete film or TV but we have people that are interested in it and are waiting and tv people wanna see it as a one-hour show (Talks) yes it’s “Story of a Village”.
