Filming for “Pleased to Meet Me,” directed by Louisville filmmaker Archie Borders, wraps this week in Louisville. The crew needs 800 extras today to comprise the audience for the finale, a concert scene filmed at the Brown Hotel. Participants should arrive at the Brown (315 W. Broadway) at 5:30 p.m. for filming.
“Pleased to Meet Me” is based on a This American Life segment produced by Starlee Kine and stars musicians John Doe (of X fame) and Aimee Mann as a musician/producer duo who comb the classifieds to assemble a band. The cast also includes Grammy Award winners Loudon Wainwright III and Joe Henry, as well as several local musicians and actors. Listen to director Archie Borders chat about the film on Byline.
