Was originally written as a non-musical drama, Sia chose to write music for the film when producers offered her an additional $10,000,000 for production to do so.
Singers Katy Perry and Beyoncé were invited to be part of the project but weren't able to partake due to scheduling conflicts.
The film's screenplay was co-written by Sia and children's book author Dallas Clayton based on a one-page story that she had written in 2007. Sia decided to direct the film after creating the music video for "Chandelier" in 2014 in which, in her own words, she felt "a little bit braver" and "pretty good" at directing.
Kate Hudson shaved her head for this role.
