The film took three years to be produced in part because obtaining the rights to the music was so expensive. Hansen-Løvewent through two different producers over the course of the pre-production process and was only able to obtain the necessary rights to license the music after Daft Punk agreed to license their music for the lowest possible fee causing other musicians to join them.[4]

The movie contains only three songs of Daft Punk: "Da Funk", "One More Time" and "Within".
