Fresh Air producer AnnMarie Baldonado gives us some final snapshots from behind-the-scenes at the Sundance Film Festival:
“Obviously it was a big leap of faith and a big commitment… I don’t know what else to say about the film except 4,207 days ago we started shooting this film and we’re really happy to be here.”
-Richard Linklater at the Sundance Film Festival, speaking at the world premiere of his latest movie, Boyhood. Linklater had the idea of following the same group of actors, checking in with them once a year, to film the life of a boy, essentially from kindergarten to college. Actor Ellar Coltrane, now 19, plays the boy, along with Linkater’s daughter Lorelei as the boy’s sister, and Ethan Hawke and Patricia Arquette as the parents. They shoot over a period of 12 years.
2. Belle & Sebastian in concert, January 30th, 2014
Stuart Murdoch was at Sundance supporting his first feature film God Help The Girl. Murdoch and members of Belle & Sebastian performed a short concert, which featured a rendition of “Raindrops Keep Falling on My Head,” a tribute to the film that lends the festival it’s name. In this shot, Emily Browning and Hannah Murray, both stars of God Help the Girl, go on stage to dance along.

“All the impersonations I have done, I’ve used up every damn one I have been able to do in my life, and some that I don’t do very well.”
