David Koechner and Harland Williams Releases A Short Instagram Movie

David Koechner (Anchorman, The Office, American Dad!) and Harland Williams (Dumb & Dumber, Half Baked, Employee of the Month) have teamed up to create a short movie on David Koechner’s Instagram account where the two of them play buddy cops.

This short movie is being called the first “Instamovie.”  David plays Steady and Harland plays Shakes.  The mini movie has a series of eight 15-second Instagram video clips.

David and Harland came up with the idea a few years ago to do a buddy cop series.  When Instagram announced their video feature, David called up Joe Homokay, James Penland, and producing partner Steve Barnett to put together the short film.  This film was shot at David’s home and it did not have any real editing process.  David and Harland compared this film to “back in the day when people shot single camera VHS.”

This was filmed entirely using iPhones.  Below are the first 8 clips.  A continuation will arrive in August.
