“She understood that it was stupid to finance your own thing and yet sometimes the fool is the genius because you’re following your heart and this really is her heart,” the producer admitted.

López added that the idea for the film came from a desire to do more than just a music video.

‘I thought, wow, this is a very special magical moment right now. I didn’t think it was right to shoot a video and do the normal thing. “I wanted to do something really different with this,” Lopez admitted.

He added that he called director Dave Meyers, who directed some of his music videos, and played him some music from the album.

Lopez said she made the album This Is Me: Then 20 years ago and was inspired by her rekindled love with Ben Affleck to make This Is Me: Now.
