primary instinct

Briefly: I’ll be in Los Angeles tonight for a screening of The Primary Instinct, followed by a live podcast recording of Jeff Goldsmith’s The Q&A. Stephen Tobolowsky will also be in attendance. If you’re in Los Angeles, come down to the Los Angeles Film School and join us. Details on how to RSVP are here.

There are only a few podcasts for which I’d consider disrupting my life and flying somewhere overnight to record. Jeff Goldsmith’s The Q&A is one of them. I’ve been listening to Jeff’s podcasting for over 6 years, and have often marveled at the insight and practical advice he’s been able to extract from his guests. It will be a great honor to participate and I hope to see some of you there. And of course, if you can’t make it, you can always buy the film here.

fight club

One of my favorite music cues from all of cinema is the ending of David Fincher’s Fight Club“Trust me. Everything’s going to be fine,” Edward Norton’s character tells Marla Singer, as explosive charges blow and their surroundings start to come apart. The Pixies’ “Where Is My Mind” roars to life in the background, and Norton intones, “You met me at a very strange time in my life.” 

That song, with its stream-of-consciousness lyrics and its simple but poignant refrain, has always struck me as the perfect song to end the film with. In recent days, “Where Is My Mind” was used to great effect in an episode of the hit show Mr. Robot

Inspired by the song and its use in popular culture, I tried to tackle a unique rendition of it using my cello and looping. With vocalist Annie Jantzer, I shot a video featuring a reverse lip-sync of the song. This required the tedious process of recording the song in studio, filming it, reversing the audio, learning the reversed version, filming the music video in reverse, and then reversing the music video to obtain the final result. Was it worth it? Check out the final product after the jump.
