Although most of "Re:Generation" focuses on producers and artists making records, director Amir Bar-Lev wanted a portion of the film to reflect the voice of the fans and a glimpse of EDM culture. Recognizing that the scene was an echo of the sex, drugs, and rock n' roll ethic of forty-plus years ago, I looked to some of my favorite counter-culture filmmakers of the time. I had always wanted to use Dennis Hopper's transition technique from "Easy Rider", in which the outgoing and incoming scenes intercut rapidly with one another, and the cut-up style of Nicolas Roeg and Donald Cammell was very much in mind for the later, darker section of the scene.

I chose the first two pieces of music, Emancipator's "Bury Them Bones" and Deadmau5's "Strobe" to build and then release the anticipation of going to your first concert, and Amir picked Amon Tobin's "Defocus" for the darker second half.
