A promising young drummer enrolls at a cut-throat music conservatory where his dreams of greatness are mentored by an instructor who will stop at nothing to realize a student's potential.
To receive funding, writer/director Damien Chazelle filmed a large chunk of the screenplay and submitted it into festivals as a short. J.K. Simmons was cast as the same character whereas Andrew is played by Johnny Simmons. (No relation).
Maybe it's time to *finally* bring this home. What do you say?
Terence Fletcher: Don't slow down. Pick it up! FASTER!
Terence Fletcher: FASTER!
Terence Fletcher: FASTER! FASTER! FASTER! KEEP PLAYING, KEEP PLAYING, KEEP PLAYING. DON'T STOP!
Terence Fletcher: Nieman, you earned the part.
Several times Andrew is bleeding badly and his hands are covered in band-aids. The next day he is fine.
