We know him best for his incomparable musical creations, but Young has occasionally taken on the role of filmmaker — and when he does, he uses the pseudonym Bernard Shakey. Young took this rare opportunity to offer a glimpse into that headspace:
“I wanted it to look like a storybook, so that people could realize that there was nothing real about it and the only time it got real was when Lionel was dreaming and the rest of it was just a set and that was something I wanted to do and the cinematography, I liked directing the shots and coming up with real long tracking shots and have a lot of things going on because I used to really enjoy some of the home movies that did that and still do. Then we worked on the script, we'd know what we were going to do, we knew what the scene was about and we knew what was going to happen in the scene but we didn't have any dialogue until the morning of the scene when we would write the dialogue.”
