Gifted and Challenged: The Making of Shortbus

John Cameron Mitchell, the creator of Hedwig and the Angry Inch, decided to make a film showing real sex in a realistic context. Gifted and Challenged is a featurette about the making of Shortbus. We get to see inside the casting process and the cycle of workshops, first draft of a script, more workshops, and further drafts. We also get to see the actors out of character. A worthwhile look behind the scenes of a wonderful feature.

Gifted and Challenged: The Making of Shortbus, dir. Sean Kaminsky, 2007 USA, 31 min.; note: this "making of" featurette is included on the DVD of Shortbus.
