I mentioned earlier this week the great thrill I had to meet and sit down with 500 Days of Summer director Marc Webb in NYC. Below is the discussion we had about 500DAYS.com and 500 Days of Summer. We chatted quite a bit before really getting into the interview (Marc’s an easy guy to talk to) so we sort of got cut short on time. Still, I hope you enjoy reading this as much as I enjoyed making it.July 15th, 2009
It feels so good to finally have the 500 Days of Summer soundtrack in my iTunes library. I’m giving it my first listen through now. Of course I really can’t wait to throw in the CD and go for a drive on a nice Summer day or night with the windows down.
Amazon offers fast shipping for the album on CD and it comes with a beautifully designed booklet and cover art. It’s definitely an item for every fan and something I’ll definitely cherish. I posted a photo of the CD and booklet after the jump.July 14th, 2009
It’s only Tuesday and already this week has been crazy for me. I just got home from NYC where I had an amazing time interviewing the incredibly down to earth director Marc Webb. If you were following my twitter you’d know my flight got delayed three hours and I missed the entire screening on Monday night(!)… however I just made it on time for the Wall Street Journal discussion that followed the screening with Webb and screenwriters Scott Neustadter and Michael Weber. Zooey Deschanel, who was supposed to be there as well, had to cancel last minute but said hello to the audience via prerecorded video. The creators of 500 Days of Summer are hilarious, modest guys and I am so excited for them for the release of the film this Friday.
500 Days of Summer goodness that has popped up over the past couple days:
• Video: Film clip from 500 Days of Summer, Day (1) of (500), from Inside Searchlight
• Article: Director Marc Webb Grilled (The Wrap). Great quote: “no one will claim to be a hipster, and if they do, you should punch them in the face.”
• Article: Gordon-Levitt moves on to romantic comedy (SFGate)
• Article: 500 Days Of Summer Scribes Tell Us Why ‘This Is Not A Love Story’ (Latino Review). Interview with Scott Neustadter and Michael Weber.
I hope to get my interview with Marc Webb up asap. For now, here’s a photo of me and the man. Thanks again, Marc, I had such a blast and it was great to talk to you.
