De Luca Speaks About Metal Gear Solid Movie

March 27, 2008

mgs_450x360.jpg

   Collider has a huge article featuring producer Mike De Luca talking about adapting video games to movies.  In the article, Mike De Luca talks about how much story there really is in the Metal Gear games and how it does not have to be like other video game movies that are no good.  Here’s what De Luca had to say about Metal Gear Solid.

“For me adapting a video game is just like adapting a book or a play or any other…whenever you’re adapting from another medium for film you try to take into account what you need to do to make it a movie.  With books it’s how you compensate for not being inside a character’s head and with video games I think what you have to compensate for is the loss of interactivity, you know.  What makes video games fun is that you get to be the character and you’re sitting there ruling the universe and it’s a really first person interactive experience.  When you’re in your theatre seat, you’re stuck with these subjective versions of the story and the game from a director or the writer’s point of view.  You can’t interact with what’s going on so whatever turns you on about the game, you’re immediately disadvantaged in the theatre because you’re not feeling anything which I think ups the ante for how good the story has to be and how good the movie has to be because we’re going in at a disadvantage that you’re not going to get the excitement or the adrenalin rush of doing it yourself, so we have to do it for you in a way that makes up for that.”

8 DALSA 4K Origin Cameras To Be Used In Quantum Of Solace

March 25, 2008

   It was announced today, by DALSA Digital Cinema, that there will be a visual effects shot in film ,Quantum of Solace, that will use 8 DALSA 4K cameras.  We do not know much about the cameras because the company is keeping the details to themselves.  All we know is that the sequence involves 8 shutter-synchronized DALSA 4K Origin cameras shooting simultaneously.    Kevin Tod Haug, the visual effects designer, made the choice of using DALSA for the film.  

“The DALSA Origin was the only uncompressed, high-resolution, low-noise camera system we could count on to do what we needed to do. The folks at DALSA were completely supportive of all our complex needs. We could not have done this sequence without them.” 

After they used the cameras, David Stump, the consulting VFX cinematographer, had this to say,

“Working with uncompressed 4K gave us the ability to mine the maximum amount of detail from the scene. The low noise floor of the DALSA enabled us see every nuance of detail from the dark blacks of the clothing.” 

Rob Hummel, President of DALSA Digital Cinema, had this to say about the experience,

“We were incredibly excited to be chosen for this complex part of the movie.  It was amazing as we watched all eight cameras shooting and pouring data into the CODEX disc units. In total, we recorded over 3.8 gigabytes of image data every second. After a year of fine tuning the DALSA camera system, we felt we were ready to put the camera to the test. Of course, passing this particularly tough test, with eight cameras synchronized together, was the best outcome I could imagine!”

Great Looking “Dragonball” Image

March 25, 2008

    We have a great looking image for all Dragonball fans. The image was taken from one of the film sets in Mexico City. At the moment, we are not sure who is involved or what it is. It’s a pretty interesting looking image, and my thoughts on the image is it’s either the creation after one of Goku’s Kama-Kama Blasts or maybe, its a volcano and there’s a fight above it. Post your thoughts. Dragonball is a 20th Century Fox’s and to be release in theaters on April 3rd 2009. Click here to enlarge image.

No Constantine Sequel For Keanu Reeves

March 25, 2008

    Director Francis Lawrence has reported a few months back, that there might be a possible Constantine sequel depended on a favorable script. Unfortunately, actor Keanu Reeves has said no to the sequel. Reason being is that according to Reeves there are no characters that he has fantasized and has no ambition in returning back. I really hate the fact that when sometimes there is a sequel to a movie, the actor thinks otherwise. Anyways, if possible Constantine movie its obvious that Reeves will end up being replace.
