Episodes one and two of the new web series from mumblecore’s own Joe Swanberg are now up on the main site of IFC.com: “The Stagg Party” is a documentary series about Ellen Stagg, a Brooklyn-based photographer whose commercial career is sometimes at odds with her passion for shooting high-end erotica. (Stagg also has a small role in Swanberg’s “Nights and Weekends,” which opened on Friday.) Needless to say, this one is NSFW.
Stagg on the series, from The Huffington Post: “The only problem that reared its head when I was shooting is that sometimes Joe would be in my shot and so I would move and this in turn would ruin his. It was funny having two artists, who are always so in control of their own work, learning to work together and trying to find the right fit.”
