Don’t remember where I found these, but whoever made them is a hero.

"For obvious reasons, every interviewer asks me about [the role of technology in "Her"], and, well, you’ve seen the movie—it definitely has a lot of ideas about technology and the way we live with technology, and the way technology helps us connect or not connect. But I think what I was really trying to write about was the way we long to connect with each other. I really tried to make more of a relationship movie—or a love story and a relationship movie in the context of right now." - Spike Jonze, director of “Her”.

Cinematographer Bryan Loftus (The Company Of Wolves, Siesta) talks with TV Store Online’s Justin Bozung about getting his start with Stanley Kubrick on Dr. Strangelove (1964) and 2001: A Space Odyssey (1968).

Stanley would come in and say, “Try it again. Do it again.” Then they would either do it or they would forget to do it. If you forgot to do it, then he would get annoyed. So he developed this memo system where if he needed you to do something he would send you a memo. Then if you forgot to do something he woulds say, “Didn’t you get the memo?” People started telling him, “I’m sorry Stanley, I did not receive that memo.” So Stanley created a new system where if he had sent you a memo you had to write a memo back to him confirming that you received his first memo! It was extraordinary. Everyone was typing memos. It got out of hand to a certain extent. He was so wonderful at devising systems like that on the spot. He employed three girls to type memos for him while we were shooting 2001.

When handheld tape recorders first came out, Stanley got a hold of two of them while we were shooting the film. I remember one day while we were in the rushes theater, he had one recorder in his left hand, and the other in his right. He would speak into one recorder, and then play it back while recording it with the other. I saw him doing this and I said, “What the hell is he up to now?” What he wanted to know what how many times he could record backwards and forwards before the audio became unintelligible. That was typical Stanley. He always had to push technology to realize its limitations. 2001: A Space Odyssey Interview Series: Bryan Loftus
