Levy Loves Wendy and Lucy

January 3rd, 2009 by Anne Richardson · No Comments · 2000's, News, Side Notes

Shawn Levy, no pushover for praise, raves about Wendy and Lucy, which opens at Cinema 21 today.

Wendy and Lucy was written by Portland author Jonathan Raymond, produced by Portland producer Neil Kopp, and executive produced by newly minted Oregonian Todd Haynes.

Here’s Todd Haynes’ take on what is really hard about filmmaking.

I mean, making a film is so scary and there’s such a kind of void that you’re working from initially. I mean, you can have all the ideas and be as prepared as possible, but you’re also still bringing people together and saying, “Trust me”, even when you don’t necessarily trust every element. You’re making something out of nothing and it requires so many people’s collaborative efforts and participation that it seems like at any moment it could just fall through the cracks and be gone forever.
