The cThe directors originally wrote ‘The Afterparty’ as a movie
Miller and Lord, co-writers and producers of the after party have a history of collaboration. Their large-scale projects include 21 jump street, Cloudy with a chance of meatballs, The Lego Movieand Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse.
However, the initial idea of the after party long before these projects. Miller originally envisioned this story as a movie, writing the initial draft 12 years ago. He knew his partnership with Lord would be an asset to the story. But it was the first time that Miller had directed a project in place of Lord.
Miller told the cheat sheet, “It made sense for me to direct, but Phil has been a great collaborating partner from the very beginning, all the way, was with me on set. In many ways, it was unlike any of the other things we do, which is a collaborative partnership. »
The film’s script, however, didn’t leave much room to delve into the complexity of the characters. So Miller and Lord expanded the after party from a film to a series. It gave the audience time to understand each character and see the world from each perspective. This complexity and detail only adds to the appeal of the show.
