Like you, I am filled with eager anticipation about the upcoming film The Canyons. Who cares if the film was rejected by Sundance. I am quite confident that the people who donated money via Kickstarter knew exactly what they were doing when the funded this film. I mean people wouldn’t just donate money to fund this film in the hopes that it would be a complete train wreck.
That horrible tabloid show TMZ recently released some behind the scenes audio of Lindsay and “former” porn star James Deen engaging in the creative process while on set. You can also hear director Paul Schrader help the two actors find their motivation for the scene. On a side note I’m pretty impressed that Paul Schrader managed to fit in this directors gig in between running the house band on Late Night With David Letterman.
Sorry about the ad before the video. Sitting through it is totally worth the wait.
So todays hump day question is: After hearing that audio recording, how much would a studio have had to pay you to direct this film?
