As film majors at Temple U., future Abso Lutely Prods. co-founders Tim Heidecker and Eric Wareheim (aka “Tim and Eric”) were already on the fast track to becoming a comic force with which to be reckoned.
“We kind of bonded, started making videos together, and made up these fake funny bands,” recalls Wareheim, biting into a sandwich on lunch break. “On the weekends, Tim and I would get cameras and just fuck around and use the film school as a place to learn how to edit and all that kind of silly stuff.

Gore: I met Mark through Catherine Keener. She and I worked together in 2008 on Nailed and have been close every since.
