Oscarsbuzzet om The Curious Case Of Benjamin Button är i full gång, hos oss har den dock premiär först på fredag. Jag är där. ?r du?
Hur som helst. VFXWorld.com har en lång och väldigt informativ intervju med David Fincher. Jag har saxat ur några fina bitar
And so you spend half a million dollars on a test for one shot, and, of course, the studio comes back and says, ”How many shots do you think you have?” And you come back with: ”Three-hundred and fifty.” And they go: ”Wow! We need to seriously reconsider this?” So, I think this is where Spielberg and Lucas and Cameron and Zemeckis have a leg up on everybody: they have the ability to get people to finance things that may or may not come to fruition
I think that the greatest lesson to be learned from this was that it wasn’t about making a real human; it was about making a character. And I think the great news about Benjamin is that he is a fully realized character in a movie, and that there are all these little moments that allow you to understand and empathize with what’s going on in his little noggin, even if he’s not saying a lot and even if he can’t move a lot. You get who he is. And I attribute that to technology in service of an actor: very specific and very interesting and very varied ideas about who this character was and what he was going through.
Han har också lite intressanta synvinklar på The Dark Knight, Speed Racer, senaste Indiana Jones och Zack Snyder.
