The warm ambient light, the angle of this shot, how connected and blended Ryan and Emma are, everything is amazing about this scene.

Per la seconda giornata di #lapresadellacultura , iniziativa portata avanti da quasi 100 pagine instagram per valorizzare la cultura e l’arte in ogni sua forma, è stato scelto il tema dell’arte come lavoro. Si può vivere di arte?
Ora vi chiederete, giustamente dico io, cosa c’entra allora La La Land? Beh cinema e musica non sono forse anch’esse arte? Il film parla di due giovani adulti che portano avanti i loro sogni con enormi difficoltà. Lui
vorrebbe diventare un grande jazzista in un mondo dove se si vuol vivere di musica si deve stare al passo con i generi musicali più contemporanei e non certo con il jazz; Lei invece vorrebbe recitare, perché dentro di lei arde impetuosa la fiamma della recitazione, ma la Los Angeles di oggi è un’enorme città piena di aspiranti attori, come può lei distinguersi tra tutti? E così il film, che ha al centro del racconto una bellissima storia d’amore, parla in modo perfetto della difficoltà odierna del vivere producendo arte, dell’emergere per ciò che si fa tra i milioni di tuoi simili. Quanti riescono a raggiungere una tale qualità e una tale fama da poter definire la loro passione il loro lavoro?
La società moderna viaggia veloce, lontana dal ritmo del jazz, e compatta, senza spazi per giovani attrici, e rischia quotidianamente di lasciarsi alle spalle la qualità, sacrificata sull’altare delle esigenze di mercato.
Così i due protagonisti dovranno scegliere cosa fare della loro carriera e soprattutto della loro relazione, realtà che inevitabilmente andranno a scontrarsi.

In conclusione, c’è spazio per gli artisti in questo mondo? La qualità delle vostre opere verrà alla fine premiata o soccomberà schiacciata dai gusti commerciali del pubblico?
Vi lascio solo con la frase di punta dell’intera pellicola: “Onore a chi è un po' folle, a chi ama osare, a chi ama sognare” .

Given I've already started sharing more of my fan trailer work on here...should probably do the same with fan posters too. Here's a trio for #FirstMan - my most anticipated film of the rest of 2018 #apollo11 #damienchazelle #ryangosling #clairefoy #imax #neilarmstrong #nasa

I love this

FAVORITE MOVIE OF 2014: "Whiplash" by Damien Chazelle. Miles Teller plays Andrew, a young drummer learning music under a strict, abusive music teacher (J.K. Simmons in his Oscar-winning role). The young man begins to unravel as the he seeks to perfect his craft.
TOP 5 OF 2014:
1. Whiplash
2. The Grand Budapest Hotel
3. X-Men: Days of Future Past
4. Boyhood
5. Begin Again

The next song that appears near the end of the film, “Audition”, was nominated at the Academy Awards. The lyricists Benj Pasek, and Justin Paul and Justin Hurwitz were interviewed by Song Exploder. Hurwitz has this to say.
.
“This was the last song I composed. We wanted to understand what the rest of the music was in the movie before we tackled this. It’s a really emotional scene and it’s a really pivotal scene, narratively. Based on conversations I’d been having with Damien, I think I knew emotionally what this scene had to be. It’s an optimistic song. It’s about never giving up and it’s about having these dreams that you believe in and that you chase forever. But that idea just has some sadness in it as well because it’s about never giving up, which means you’re not there yet, which means life might be difficult at the moment. I knew that it had to ultimately have this sort of bittersweet tone to it.”
.
.
Perhaps this is why I like the song so much. You never give up on your dreams, dreams that are difficult to accomplish. Dreams of success as an actress or jazz musician as in the case of Mia and Sebastian in the movie. Dreams of love, which the movie’s ending has something to say about.

The opening number, “Another Day of Sun”, begins a theme throughout the film. Justin Hurwitz noted "It’s an optimistic song, but it’s also about unfulfilled dreams.” Justin Paul said, “You pursue that dream, and you go to bed and get up the next day, and it’s a gorgeous day. It encourages you in one breath, and in another breath doesn’t acknowledge that you just failed miserably. You wake up and it doesn’t match your mood. It’s a bright and shiny day."
.
.
Edited with hidden cuts, the scene actually includes three shots, but appears to be a single take. It was filmed on location on a 130-foot-high express ramp of the Judge Harry Pregerson Interchange.

Another important song in the film, “Start a Fire”, is performed by John Legend. The song seems to have been made to intentionally clash with the classic jazz loving Sebastian (we see this in Gosling’s performance in the seen). Even Mia does not seem to be into the song.

The song that many know from the film, “City of Stars”, won a Golden Globe for Best Original Song. .
.
In fact, at this, the 74th Golden Globe Awards, La La Land won in all seven categories for which it was nominated, setting a historic record for the most Golden Globes won by a single film, namely Best Motion Picture – Musical or Comedy, Best Director, Best Actor – Comedy or Musical for Gosling, Best Actress – Comedy or Musical for Stone, Best Screenplay, Best Original Score and Best Original Song ("City of Stars"). The duet of Emma Stone and Ryan Gosling also won an Academy Award, beating another song from the film which we will talk about next.

The theme that recurs throughout the movie, called “Mia and Sebastian’s Theme” is a piece of piano music. Interestingly, Ryan Gosling learned piano for this movie. The piece is beautiful, and I am trying to learn it myself (maybe I’ll post that someday).
.
.
The “Epilogue” piece features the theme in a lighter broken form near the end as the audience realizes what is happening on screen. .

In addition to Kaleo I figured I’d make up for the missed Wildcard Wednesday last week. Plus, today seemed like a perfect day to talk about the music from one of my favorite movies, La La Land.
.
.
While I could talk about this movie for quite some, I will highlight some of the big pieces of music from the film. The movie means a lot to me for many reasons. This movie kicked off a great time in my life. I remember all the details from the day I went to see it. Sadly, my life has taken the path of this movie.
