“Baby Groot dancing is 100 percent me. I was too embarrassed for anyone to be there, so I made everyone leave the room and I set up a camera and I videotaped myself dancing. Then I sent the video to the animators and had them animate over that. I begged them not to leak the video! Two of my closest friends came to an early screening and said ‘Hey, I recognize those moves! That’s you dancing isn’t it?!’” - Vin Diesel
reblogged before but that comment just makes it that much better

That is the correct quote, but from the wrong person. It is in fact writer/director James Gunn who was motion referenced and said this, not Vin Diesel.
I’m working with a talented group of Fitchburg State University students to make our thesis film, The Runaround Club. It’s about a pair of thieves that get stuck in the basement of a house they’re ransacking, when the family arrives home and a domestic abuse situation plays out above them.
But filmmaking is expensive, so we need all the help we can get.
