Songwriting scene shot in a single take

“A lot of the music had already been written into the script by Richard Friedenberg, and cleared by music supervisor Marianne Goode. We also did a few tracks on set. One was the scene where June’s (Carter Cash) writing ‘Ring of Fire.’ Scenes of people composing are deadly, but (Jewel) brought her creative process to the scene — how she writes a song herself. All shot in one single take.”

— Allison Anders, director, “Ring of Fire”
