music heartbeat

heartbeats - On Spotify

We want to share with you a selection of songs from our playlist! While working on the film, we curated a playlist of songs that reminded us of the film in some way. We could feel specific story moments and character traits in these songs, and we’d listen to it as we worked on the storyboards and animation to keep us in the right mood so that we were totally invested in the emotion and tone of whatever moment we were working on. 


The Houses as Friends I’ve had

Hufflepuff : Suuuuuuuuper cute, only wears bright yellow Doc Martens, would whisper ‘I’m so gay’ to herself, can’t listen to musicals without acting out the full scene, cried because someone had a really pretty voice, cried because she watched ‘In A Heartbeat’, she just cried a lot - girl must’ve been really hydrated, give her a cuppa and she’ll act like you just named your firstborn after her, liked to swear, honestly just needs a wife and some Kleenex

Slytherin : boldest hair ever, has the death glare down to a t, would call people stupid a bit too loudly, sexual innuendos come too easily for her (pun intended), goes really mushy for kittens, refuses to wear pink, ‘I was a strong independent woman until Destiel happened’, would whine if you told her not to fight someone, needs a moral compass installed

Gryffindor : gets really loud really fast, would fight anyone who insults their favourite Disney character, notorious cry-baby but would honestly bare-knuckle fight someone if they insulted their family, sings out of tune, ‘I know you’re sad, but would watching RuPaul’s Drag Race make you feel better?’, refuses to fix her lipstick, needs both a medal and a chill-pill 

Ravenclaw : only uses fairy-lights and never the actual room light, always has a flask of tea, usually seen with paint on her sleeves, likes children but doesn’t have the patience for one, tried to be a hipster but was too embarrassed, draws ‘tattoos’ on her arms with eyeliner, writes fanfiction on the bus, buys DVDs without having seen the film, needs a hug (doesn’t want one)

Tatiana Maslany plays 10+ characters - each with specific vocal registers, accents, body movements, and rhythms. She has spoken English, German, French, and Ukrainian. She played four characters in a six character scene. She utilized music to create individual heartbeats and internal rhythms for her characters. She understands what they love and what they fear. I am in awe. I will always be in awe.

do doo do dooo time to do my homework..


i hope you fall in love with someone who always texts back and never lets you go to sleep feeling unwanted.
i hope you fall in love with someone who holds your hand during scary movies and gets silly with you.
i hope you fall in love with someone who sees galaxies in your eyes, music in your heartbeat and rhythm in your movement.
i hope you fall in love with someone who makes you smile and laugh on easy days as well as hard ones.
i hope you fall in love with someone who kisses you in the rain and loves you in the cold.
but overall, what i hope for is for you to fall in love with someone who appreciates what they have and will never leave you behind in pieces. i hope they see you at your best and your worst and has loved you through all.
—  i hope you are happy and loved. sorry i can’t do that.
