2015 Sundance Trading Card Series: #25. Naomi Scott (The Overnight)

Naomi Scott Eric Lavallee: Name me three of your favorite “2014 discoveries”…
Naomi Scott: Force Majeure. Artist Aaron Morse. Natasha Lyonne’s Instagram account: @nlyonne

Lavallee: How did Patrick Brice’s The Overnight land on your lap? What motivated to get behind the project and what were your thoughts on his debut film, Creep?
Scott: Destiny! Actually, we (Gettin’ Rad) had been trying to find a project to do with Mark Duplass. He brought us Patrick’s script and immediately after reading we were on board. I had seen an early cut of the wondrously weird “Creep“, which I loved, and couldn’t believe that both ideas came out of Patrick’s singular brain.

Lavallee: Your prod house Gettin’ Rad Productions is a professional and personal merger of two individual’s creative and comedic affinities. Could you discuss how your artistic collaboration with Adam, from skit-bliss in The Greatest Event in Television History to the upcoming projects in the pipeline…
Scott: We’re both TV babies-we logged a lot of hours watching shows and films when we were younger. Luckily a lot of our tastes align but we also introduce new things to one another. For example, he knows a lot more about the AMC movies I grew up on and I now have a deep knowledge of all things U2.
