SHOT 403

Vonky puts a very special album on her Barbie Princess record player so Kim and Dennis can sing along.

This prop actually turns, blinks and plays a Disney song. I customized it a bit with a photo of Ivanka playing dress-up.

In order to capture the rotation and blinky light, I had to make the song play over and over again while shooting this lengthy scene. Oh boy, did that get annoying.

And quite by accident, I discovered that if I slowed its song way down, it complemented Rocket Man in such a creepy way. So that became part of the score, along with Dennis & Kim’s torturous duet.
