Even in still photography you can tell I can’t sing.
Oooooo I loved ANIMA. Watch it LOUD. Thank you @thomyorke & Paul Thomas Anderson & @dajana_roncione & cinematographer Darius Khondji & the GöteborgsOperans dance company & choreographer Damian Jalet & @netflix . 🤯 . “The anima is what Jung calls the essence of a man’s personality, his female spirit. For men the anima may be described as an image which they project onto the women that they meet.” - Roslyn A. Karaban , 1992 article in Pastoral Psychology.

@Booksmart soundtrack diary #9: LEIKELI47 - “MONEY” & “ATTITUDE”. When you have a character like Gigi, played by a baller like @praisethelourd, you better make a dope-ass entrance for her. And once you shoot that, you better find a track that lives up to said dope-ass intro. I discovered this incredible artist through her track “Attitude”, and KNEW it was an essential @booksmart needle-drop cuz let’s face it, our movie has mad attitude (madittude for efficiency). We were lucky enough to use that track over the library montage because I needed as much swagger as possible to match the boss energy Molly & Amy bring to the UCLA stacks.  For Ms GIGI, I was proud of our slo-mo hood-mount shot of her sitting on the car window, and once I tried “Money” over it, I flipped out and loved it so much I actually have one cut where we used the entirety of the song (cuz its THAT good so go buy it). @leikeli47 is a beast and we are so grateful we get to feature her TWICE. So. Much. Swag.
@Booksmart soundtrack diary #8: LYKKE LI - UNCHAINED MELODY.  Originally written in 1955 by Hy Zaret and sung by Todd Duncan, then covered by the Righteous Brothers, and made extra famous by a certain sexy ceramics scene, this song has that deeply visceral quality that makes it immediately emotional, which is of course what I needed for this scene. Molly and Amy are saying goodbye. Suddenly their intense bond -  the lifejacket they’ve shared for their entire lives - is ripped off, and they’re left alone in the middle of this huge ocean of WTF called adulthood. Their longing runs deep. We’ve all felt it for someone at some point so we feel it in our gut once the first moment of the song kicks in. We don’t often realize how traumatic it can be to say goodbye to a friend who knows us better than anyone. There are a billion songs about romance, but very few about platonic love. In this scene I wondered if maybe what we needed more than anything was a song that WAS a classic love song, to drive home that this goodbye is just as deep, and sadly necessary, and painful as romantic breakups. Because what we’re saying is: love your friends as hard as your lovers. Of course the incredible performances of the actors, and beautiful camera work by @jason_mccormick and his team, made it all come together, but we were very lucky to have this beautiful song. Thank you @lykkeli for gracing us with your magic. I’m a little bit in love with you.
@Booksmart soundtrack diary #7: ALANIS MORISSETTE - YOU OUGHTA KNOW.  1995 is ancient history to most of our young cast, but they knew how to get DOWN to Jagged Little Pill on our set for one of my favorite moments in the film: the karaoke scene. When we were dreaming up this moment - when George (@noahegalvin) lets his broken hearted freak flag fly with the passionate support of Gigi (@praisethelourd), while Ryan (@littleruesga) leans back in her cool-as-hell-sexually-ambiguous-way, and Amy (@kaitlyndever) is FTFO that this *must* be the night it all goes down, and finally busts out of her shell, and lets her inner Alanis ripppp. I love this moment. I loved shooting it. I told @noahegalvin he was singing this song about 45 mins before we shot it. He didn’t skip a beat and nailed it, throwing in a close-up 🎙 deep throat for good measure. Luckily for me, this song happened to be @kaitlyndever’s actual karaoke go-to. (She also happens to be a brilliant singer and has a GREAT band with her sister called @beulahbelleband which you should check out.) THIS track was a MAJOR MAJOR score for us, and it’s all because @dailysmiles didn’t laugh at me when I asked if we could try. I wrote Alanis a letter of course. I’ve been a fan since ‘95, when she showed us that rage could be channeled into art, and none of us were alone in our heartbreak. Thank you @alanis . You are a living legend.
