At a TIFF premiere, Q & A with director and I got the last question. I asked what his process was like with the composer.
He answered the composer was a big shot who he didn’t anticipate being able to work with but surprisingly the composer approached him. They tried some cues blah blah blah basically he said it was fantastic to watch the composer develop the score. No fights. No dilemmas. Didn’t have anything to say that was critical.
Then everyone claps, says goodnight, as I made my way out, taking the long way, I noticed by the elevators the director was still talking to fans and so I approached and reminded him I was the last question and had one more question – was it really so easy for them to work together? He said no it wasn’t but I’m not going to say that out loud in a Q & A.
What’s the point of the Q&A? It doesn’t mean you have to insult someone if you had disagreements, it’s just a way for us to gain insight. So that was the insight, that he’s chicken.
