DENNIS ANYONE? with Dennis Hensley

Welcome to Dennis Anyone, a podcast about making things up and making things happen. I love to talk to creative types about what they do and how they do it. Hope you enjoy my conversations as much as I do. - Dennis H.

On a rare rainy day in LA, Dennis visits the L.A. home of Steve Gizicki, Music Supervisor of one of the buzziest movies of the year, "La La Land." They talk about how he got the gig, what his job as music supervisor actually entailed and what it's like to be part of the year-end awards conversation. Steve also shares lots of behind-the-scenes details from the shoot, like where he was positioned during the spectacular opening traffic jam number, the wobbly pole that kept upstaging Ryan Gosling's "Singin' in the Rain" homage and his favorite memories of working with Gosling and Emma Stone. Other topics include: how he originally got into music, working with George Lucas at Lucasfilm for five years, his lowest career point, the first music he bought as a kid and the song that makes him cry.
