Derrick Borte, director of “The Joneses” – Hollywood In Ten
HollywoodNews.com’s interview feature, “Hollywood In Ten,” showcases the creative individuals responsible for the movies we love, and corners them for 10 quality minutes.
We all know how difficult it can be keeping up with the Joneses. Now try competing with the couple when they are funded by a rich marketing company hoping to use a gorgeous couple to peddle its top-of-the-line wares.
That’s the idea behind “The Joneses,” a razor-sharp satire of corporate greed and intrusive commercial marketing that stars David Duchovny and Demi Moore as salespeople posing as suburbanites so they can convince their well-to-do neighbors to purchase new and better things.
Director Derrick Borte understands the appeal of commercials, having directed several over the course of his career. As he makes the leap to feature films, he spoke to HollywoodNews.com about the concept of immersive marketing, the logistics of negotiating product placement in motion pictures, and the freedom he gave Duchovny and Moore to discover their original characters.
