Movies / TinTin
« on: September 02, 2008, 12:35:24 PM »
Dreamworks bought the rights to TinTin a while back, we all remember the TinTin comics im sure - and so 3 TinTin films are going to be made - all motion capture, photorealistic 3D (styled to the style of the comics).

Steven Spielberg and Peter Jackson are producing/directing the films; Spielberg will direct the 1st, Jackson the 2nd, and at the moment they are planning on co-directing the 3rd. So that sounds like they're going to be 3 kick arse films. WETA is heavily involved of course, busy modelling character at the moment - Andy Serkis has signed on to play Captain Haddock - and i'm sure he'll do other mo-cap roles if needed.

:)

But of course Spielberg and Jackson are pretty busy on separate projects at the moment (Jackson - The Lovely Bones [2009], Spielberg - Transformers 2 [2009]). I have a reasonable amount of faith in those 2 to make some kick arse films... As long as theres no input from George Lucas it will be fine. ;)

Well i have already had lengthy discussions with Dan and Alex and we pretty much agree on every point, so theres not too much i can really add that wouldnt be repeating what they have already said.

All i can say is that this movie KICKS SOOOOO MUCH ARSE, and its incredible to watch all the actors performances. I was anxious to see Heath Ledger's Joker, and will admit i had high expectations - which he surpassed shockingly quickly..

Thats really all i need to say.

Movies / Ark

Those who went to the animation festival will remember the somewhat epic film 'Ark' which was screened. A fun fact for those who saw it is that those shiny shiney environments were miniatures!

Article: http://features.cgsociety.org/story_custom.php?story_id=4115

They used Platige Image's motion control system in the filming of the miniatures, and for those who havent done MPI203 or VFX105 (3D) you guys may not know what im talking about, but those of you who have remember the short film 'The Cathedral'??

http://www.platige.com/index.php?lng=en&tu=27

Well Platige Image was responsible for that. Its funny how all these things can intertwine isnt it? In fact Marcin Kobylecki who is executive producer at Platige Image and was executive producer on 'The Cathedral' was producer on 'Ark'.

I'll be interested with how they go about the filler movie. Theres rumours of doing something along the lines of the story of Aragorn capturing Gollum and taking him to Mirkwood, but im thinking alot of what they do will depend on if they need actors from the trilogy who is willing to come back. Liv Tyler has already said that if there was a need for Arwen - she would definately come back. So who knows?....

Its ridiculous to think that they are so unwilling to get behind JLA when it would do nothing but benefit the australian film industry. Pretty much what is going to happen is people are going to move overseas to work and the Aus Film Industry will lose out even more than it is right now..

And its not like Australia wouldnt be recognised for their contribution in the film anyway. Its not like New Zealand was misrepresented as some fantastical fantasy land when they filmed LOTR.. As it says in the article, its all gone uphill for them from there on in. Whereas this JLA business could cause AUS to go the other way.

*sigh* thats my rant

Those wishing to be zombies can u pretty please not wear BLUE or GREEN clothes..

Reasoning for this is because we're not sure which we're using it will be green or blue screened.. So yes...

No Blue. No Green.

Thanku all very much.. Its nice to have enthusiastic zombies :P
