The Puffy Chair is a 2005 film written, produced and directed by filmmaking brothers Mark and Jay Duplass. The film chronicles a road trip taken by the main character (Duplass) as he tries to deliver a lounge chair that he found on eBay to his father. Themes of family ties, friendships and relationships are detailed throughout. Extensive improvisation was conducted by many of the actors in the film.
It's considered to be one of the first mumblecore films due to it's use of improvisation, naturalism and camera movements. The film was made on a budget of $15,000 and screened at the South by Southwest Film Festival (SXSW) in 2005.
