“I grew up with the members of the band,” Shiloh said. “We’re all from Northern California and really like that soft reggae music, and I think they’ve done a great job and this album [The Sound] is fantastic. They sent it to me and I thought maybe we could come up with something that is beautiful and also of the area that we grew up in, and represent the band in a different way that you might not normally see.”
Shiloh also revealed that they shot the video on a budget of about $100 and that his brother and ex-girlfriend (who is also featured in the video) helped out in holding the camera when he had to be in the shots himself.
“Some of the inspiration for the video was, I had had a girlfriend in high school, from [the ages of] 14-19. I had this girlfriend, and we all knew each other, and we’d break up and get back together, and when I heard the song and how they described it to me, about their own relationships and the tumultuousness of young love and breaking up and getting back together, and how there is always that passion that always burns for one of your first loves, and actually use the girl from high school in the video, I connected with that.”

We all know marketing pours through every part of New York like spilled soda, covering us in sugary slogans and sexy fashion.
So when it came time to spoof a target, there was nothing like the real thing for “Syrup,” a fast-talking romantic comedy which finished shooting around the city this week.
Based on a comic novel by Max Barry, “Syrup” involves an up-and-coming marketing man named Scat (Shiloh Fernandez) who rises to the top of the soft drink game by adding some A-game pop and X-rated fizz. But first he must deal with a duplicitous roommate (“Twilight’s” Kellan Lutz) and a vixen named “Six” (Amber Heard, soon to be seen on TV’s “The Playboy Club”).
There’s also a competing hottie (Brittany Snow) called “3″ – because she’s half as sexy as 6 – and more corporate weaseliness than there are lights on Broadway.

Production just started for ‘Syrup’. You can read Max Barry (Syrup’s author) blog about the movie here. He already posted a few things about Shiloh:
It was also my first look at Shiloh Fernandez, outside of “Red Riding Hood” trailers, and holy hell, he is wonderful. He said lines and they magically became way better than they sounded in my head. He was Scat sprung to life. (People call him “Scat” even when he’s not acting, which reinforced my feeling that I had invented him.)
At the end of the day, I met Shiloh and Kellan and found them to be incredibly friendly and charming. I feel so grateful to these guys for not sucking. I should probably think of a better way to express that. What I mean is: you know when you have an awesome dream and you try to explain it to someone? And as it’s coming out of your mouth you realize this actually sounds incredibly lame. These guys are making the dream sound awesome.
I seriously can’t shake the feeling that I’m talking to Scat.
Included on the Red Riding Hood Blu-ray edition are many of these special extras including casting tapes, the making of the wolf, gag reels and deleted scenes. Hardwicke also shot an alternate ending, which appears on the Blu-ray edition. “As a director, every moment when you’re on set you try to be creative in that moment and one moment during filming I had this crazy idea and thought, ‘why don’t you try this?’ So I shot a different ending and then we tried it as one of the possible endings for the final version and I liked it a lot. I think the final one you saw in theaters might be better but I like them both. It’s kind of like a contest, ‘which one is more interesting?’”

Kellan Lutz and Allison Williams are in negotiations to join the cast of the indie “Syrup,” joining stars Shiloh Fernandez and Amber Heard.
Aram Rappaport is directing the pic based on the Max Barry tome about young ladder-climbers in the corporate soda industry.
Lutz, repped by Innovative Artists, Zero Gravity Management and Barnes Morris can be seen next in Relativity’s “Immortals.” Williams, repped by Paradigm, is set to star in the upcoming HBO series “Girls.”
Amber Heard and Shiloh Fernandez have joined the cast of Syrup, the film adaptation of the Max “Maxx” Barry novel, Variety reports. The book, a dark satire, is officially described as follows:
The average person has three million-dollar ideas per year. Scat, an unemployed marketing graduate who knows you don’t get noticed calling yourself Michael, has had his first. It’s a sure-fire ticket to the life of shallow fame and fleeting celebrity he craves. But first he has to deal with 6, who is possibly the love of Scat’s life or possibly ripping him off, and Sneaky Pete, marketing genius, refugee from Tokyo, and Scat’s best friend—as far as Scat knows.
Barry, who jokingly credits himself as “Maxx Barry” on the cover to fit the novel’s tone, also helped to adapt the screenplay with director Aram Rappaport (Helix). Another of Barry’s works is also headed for the screen with Darren Aronofsky interested in developing his Machine Man. Though it remains undeveloped, Steven Soderbergh was once said to be interested in another of the author’s novels, Jennifer Government.
It has not been confirmed as of yet which roles Heard and Fernandez will be taking on, but they are quite likely those of Six and Scat, respectively. A smaller production, it remains to be seen if some of the many celebrities who cameo in the novel might make appearances in the film version.
Heard most recently appeared in Drive Angry, opposite Nicolas Cage, and Fernandez in Red Riding Hood, opposite Amanda Seyfried.

Here’s a transcription of the video interview in which Thomas explains how the script came together, what it is about and confirms some of the actors attached:
It’s a screenplay that I wrote that sort of … I made this film “Whore”… and it was the unscripted, sort of unfocused, very young, very nihilistic, very aggressive approach to this subject that fascinates me which is that Hollywood per square mileage has more prostitutes under the age of 21 than anywhere else in the country and I believe that after three years of interviewing and meeting with young prostitutes to be due to the fact of the hope of celebrity obsession and the dream of sort of success and wealth; and I’m fascinated by how this wish translates to dire consequences so I guess where “Whore” was full of reckless abandon, we revisited the idea and wrote a far more mature and empathetic script and so I wrote this film and I actually met one of my executive producers Kevin Iwashina at the Toronto Film Festival when I was there with “Kaboom” and he was interested in the idea and he read the script and he loved it and took it to Christine Vachon, who I have been a huge fan of for years and years, with Killer Films and all of the amazing movies she’d done, and they both sort of became pioneers of this story so then we got our producers in tow and our executive producers were there and then we cast it and there are still two roles that are open, the one female lead was written for Rooney Mara who is totally down to do it but she’s off doing “Girl with the Dragon Tattoo”, so we’re kinda figuring that out, there’s a lot being figured out [...].
It’s sort of about two subjects, one that I’ve studied for years and years which is homelessness and prostitution ??? ??? American youth which is something that I don’t know personally but also this idea of how much do you give yourself over to the dream of what Hollywood now means, I guess, which is something very personally, I grown up in this since I was five so it’s a very emotional and impassioned idea and it is happening and it will be shot soon, we were gonna be shooting this month due to my series, if and when it is picked up, now shooting, and just amazing actors and actresses that I’ve had the courtesy of working with or meeting throughout the years. [...]
So far they’re proud to be attached, so I guess I can say, Shiloh Fernandez, Kyle Gallner, Haley Bennett, Nico Tortorella, Natasha Lyonne, Lena Headey, I think that might be it. We have a bunch of cameos too but that’s really not worth discussing. And the cinematographer from “Kaboom” ??? shooting it with me, we really get along and I sort of have this obsession that everybody behind the camera be a woman. Just because I feel the subject is really… needs that sensitivity and needs that sort of motherly approach because it’s really bleak and very stark and aggressive but I wanna tell it in a very poetic and gentle way.
A big thank you to Michelle and Sam for this transcription!
