La La Land – Scene Recreation


I remember loving this scene from the first moment I saw it in a theater. I also knew I would never get a chance to perform the lines because…I’m a guy. So we shot it both ways, because ultimately I believe that this scene isn’t really between a man and a woman, but between an actor and a musician. Between two people whose relationship allows them to be vulnerable to one another while also being brutally honest in support of one another.

The ‘original recreation’, starring Sharayu Mahale as Mia and me as Sebastian.
The swapped version, with me as Mia.
