My 2nd #MCM today goes out to the double threat that is Danny Elfman & Gus Van Sant 🎼🎬 Thanks to @sffilm for hosting their latest film @dontworrymovie on the #closingnight for the #sffilmfestival. The film flips the script on themes of self-destruction in Joaquin Phoenix’s character, and is counterbalanced by @jonahhill’s who advocates that it’s hard work to inspire faith 🌤 During the Q&A the best geek-out moment was when a fan asked about “Weepy Donuts”; Danny said it was a composition he coined for Gus’ 1995 film To Die For, and along with “Final Composition” he repeatedly used those titles in ~50 different instances for other films until his music publisher pleaded for him to stop 😂 Nice question, @nicallardice! 👏 These fellas also stuck around onstage after the Q&A for autographs & more fan questions 👉 sign of naturally talented artists who are all about keeping it 💯 with their roots & why they share it with others 📷💃🏻🎬🎨 📸: #notusedtothespotlight #musicbiz #laboroflove #giveitupfortheorganplayer

Unfortunately, an info showed up that AMA with Danny Elfman is cancelled. The composer explained that he is unable to find time for it because of his schedule. We hope he will soon confirm another date to get in touch with his fans online.
