Summary: I love making people laugh, says filmmaker Ivan Reitman, summing up the driving force behind his body of work. As the producer of National Lampoon's Animal House and director of numerous comedies in the 1980s and '90s, Reitman has amassed a wealth of filmmaking knowledge and shares elements of it in this program. He explains how many of his projects were developed, describing early concepts and script drafts for Stripes, Ghostbusters, and Twins, as well as his experiences in casting and shooting his directorial debut Meatballs and the Schwarzenegger vehicle Kindergarten Cop. Reitman also offers perspective on a film crew's mood and its usefulness-or lack thereof-in gauging a scene's comedic power.
