“Glitter and Doom” stars Alex Diaz and Alan Cammish gush over what it was like to work with the Indigo Girls on the bright, queer and joyful film featuring many incredible musical numbers.

Diaz says the folk rock duo’s music especially enticed him to the film, which “follows a musician and a carefree kid as they fall in love at first sight,” as per IMDb.

“It looked like a lot of fun,” the Filipino-Canadian actor told ET Canada’s Dallas Dixon. “I just thought what a crazy opportunity this would be.”

Cammish added that having the Indigo Girls — comprised of Amy Ray and Emily Saliers — in the musical film “was next level.”

“I mean, I remember I was singing ‘Closer to Fine’ for the first time on set and suddenly, at the back of the room, Amy Ray just wandered in,” the actor recalled. “And she’s like, ‘Sing for us’. And I think there’s a video — you can see my soul leave my body.”

Given the film’s music-focus, Diaz and Cammish revealed their favourite musical numbers from the project.

“The nightclub scene, for sure,” Diaz shared. “That one completely blew me out of the water. I was like, ‘Wow.’ It was stunning.”

“Who doesn’t love, like, a big club dance scene?” Cammish chimed in, agreeing that the scene was “amazing.”

“And, ‘World Falls’. I would have to give a shout out too as well,” he added. “I hated recording that song, and then we got there, and I was like, ‘Oh, actually this is amazing. It’s my favourite.’”

“We were shooting right at sunset and we only had like a certain amount of time to get everything,” Diaz recounted. “Everything came together so beautifully. It was such a beautiful memory to take home.”

“Glitter and Doom” just closed Inside Out — the annual film festival in Toronto that celebrates the “best queer film from Canada and around the world,” as per the not-for-profit’s website.
