After hitting New York for some Sneaker Shopping, actor-director Jonah Hill, Sunny Suljic and the rest of the Mid90s cast arrived at HYPEFEST to break down their time on set. Na-Kel Smith, Olan Prenatt, Gio Galicia and Ryder McLaughlin join a freewheeling chat where the actors and director touch on various topics, ranging from acting jitters to skateboarding.

Smith, a talented skater in his own right, touches on the genesis of his skateboarding career and his open-minded approach to inspiration. Director Jonah Hill similarly breaks down the direction fueling the film’s screenplay, explaining how he sought to recreate authentic conversations in the dialogue and why he enjoys watching Mid90s with a live audience. Finally, Olan Prenatt touches on how he wrangled his nerves on set, while 13 year-old Sunny Suljic admits that he’s actually younger than HYPEBEAST.

Watch the chat above and check out what Hill got into after the chat.

Elsewhere, the director joined with Palace to announce the brand’s upcoming Japanese outpost.
