San Francisco Film Festival Q&A

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

Halloween in Mexico

What a Halloween this year in Mexico City! As everyone have expected the Danny Elfman’s Music from the Films of Tim Burton concert on Halloween evening was an unique show. Audience at Arena Ciudad de México could enjoy performance of amazing music and singing. Jonathan Davis from Korn joined Danny to sing ‘This is Halloween’ , Susana Zabaleta sang ‘Sally’s Song’ and of course Elfman performed as beloved Jack Skellington. Jonathan Davis played later on the interpretation of ‘Kidnap The Sandy Claws’.
