Since his days as Monica’s boyfriend on Friends, Favreau has gone onto better things—like directing Iron Man 2 and Tweeting about it.

6. Lee Unkrich – leeunkrich
The Pixar director (Toy Story 2, Monsters Inc., Finding Nemo) talks us through the creation of Toy Story 3 and tells us about sneaking in a Toy Story logo onto one of the balloons in Up.

Finding Nemo – HU DVD 836

5. Greg Mottola – GregMottola
The director of Superbad and Adventureland is shooting a new film called Paul with Seth Rogen, Simon Pegg, Bill Hader, Jane Lynch, Jason Bateman, Kristen Wiig, Nick Frost and (according to his Twitter feed) Sigourney Weaver. Holy crap. He’s also diggin’ him some Iron & Wine.

If you think we should buy his films, feel free to submit a request here.

4. Errol Morris – errolmorris
The director of Fog of War and The Thin Blue Line packs a lot of substance into 140 characters like mini-ruminations on truth vs. narrative consistency.

3. Rian Johnson – rcjohnso
The director of Brick and The Brothers Bloom answers all the Tweets directed at him. The down-side is that gives his feed a pretty low signal-to-noise ratio. But it’s also pretty cool that he responds to just about any question.

2. David Wain – davidwain
The prolific writer/actor/director/blogger is also a prolific Twitterer.

Wet Hot American Summer – HU DVD 1506

1. Kevin Smith – ThatKevinSmith
He’s in the middle of shooting a movie called “A Couple of Dicks” with Bruce Willis and
Tracy Morgan, so the number of penis puns is um… huge.

Clerks II – HU DVD 5335
Mallrats – HU DVD 5278
Zack and Miri Make a Porno – HU DVD 5313
