We have another fantastic director calling in, all the way from Australia. This week we’ve got Babyteeth director Shannon Murphy on to discuss Harmony Korine’s Spring Breakers. Shannon talks about the use of music in Korine’s film and how she used music when directing Killing Eve. She discusses motivating her actors to take interesting risks in their performances. She also chats about casting Ben Mendelsohn against type. And she reveals how she obsessively stalked a band until they gave her the rights to their song.
You can watch Babyteeth on VOD June 19th.
If you haven’t seen Spring Breakers…check it out!
AND, if you want to check out April’s Staff Pick – watch Lynne Ramsay’s You Were Never Really Here
