Marc Webb says he spoke to the lead actor, Joseph Gordon-Levitt, about the music in 500 Days of Summer and was surprised to learn that actors don’t usually know what the music will be before they start shooting. “That, to me, just seems strange,” Webb says. “Because it lets them know the tone you’re after. And I think that’s a really important thing for an actor to know or to feel before you shoot a scene.” Before Webb began shooting 500 Days of Summer, he gave his two main actors, Gordon-Levitt and Zooey Deschanel, iPods with each day on their schedule broken down. He included songs that he’d been listening to when breaking down the script with the goal of conveying the feeling he was going after on each day of shooting. [x]

Marc Webb’s reaction while watching Andrew and Emma filming a scene, plus what he had to say about it:

When we tested them, there was fireworks. She could take on Andrew’s improvisation and witticisms and one-up him. I mean, it was amazing to see them go back and forth. It became an obvious combination, because that’s what people are there for.”
