Morgan Spurlock has taken a break (kind of) from doing his long-form documentaries, such as Super Size Me and The Greatest Movie Ever Sold, to work on an exclusive six-episode series through Hulu. It’s appropriately called A Day In The Life and thus far has featured entrepreneur Richard Branson, comedian Russell Peters, producer Will.I.Am., and, as of last night, Greg Gillis. Or, as most of us know him, Girl Talk.
You get a first-hand account of, well, a day in the life of Gillis and what it’s like to setup one of his massive festival gigs, from the guys who do all the visuals and props to Gillis’ pre-stage preparation. Of course, he also speaks on his production style and how his live show is a lot more complicated than it might seem. This allows him to shed light on why it takes him longer than most people would think to put a new album together, too. It’s all in the fine-tuning and layering of samples, with nearly 400 of them being used in just one night’s show.
