Emma told to Deadline, "Of course, you were doing each scene for a day, instead of the full story all the way through each day."
She then told how Alejandro González, the director for Birdman, use to call her and ask if she felt like she was in the Birdman universe, "Alejandro keeps emailing me asking me if I feel like I'm in Birdman every day, because I'm walking through these hallways of Studio 54. It does feel like Birdman." She then continues, "You couldn't have picked a better movie to make if you had to prepare for theatre, because every other movie has felt very different than what I'm doing right now."
