Steve Soderbergh Turns Raiders of the Lost Ark Into Black And White. Adds Different Soundtrack.

steve soderbergh raiders of the lost ark

Ever wondered what Raiders of the Lost Ark would look like in black and white?  What about if you replace the classic John Williams soundtrack with  Trent Reznor and Atticus Ross' work for David Fincher's "The Social Network" and "The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo?  Nope me neither but that didn't stop director, Steve Soderbergh from putting together the whole film with the above mentioned changes.  It's strange to watch but as Soderbergh explains:
I value the ability to stage something well because when it’s done well its pleasures are huge, and most people don’t do it well, which indicates it must not be easy to master (it’s frightening how many opportunities there are to do something wrong in a sequence or a group of scenes. Minefields EVERYWHERE. Fincher said it: there’s potentially a hundred different ways to shoot something but at the end of the day there’s really only two, and one of them is wrong). Of course understanding story, character, and performance are crucial to directing well, but I operate under the theory a movie should work with the sound off, and under that theory, staging becomes paramount (the adjective, not the studio. although their logo DOES appear on the front of this…).
At some point you will say to yourself or someone THIS LOOKS AMAZING IN BLACK AND WHITE and it’s because Douglas Slocombe shot THE LAVENDAR HILL MOB and the THE SERVANT and his stark, high-contrast lighting style was eye-popping regardless of medium.

I can't embed the movie here but head over to http://extension765.com/sdr/18-raiders#sthash.pq4t5kf1.dpuf to watch the whole movie.

VIDEO: ILM's Kevin Clark on LucasFilm's Data Demands


Although this video is three years old, its still worth watching to see the hardware ILM had and have to produce movies such as Rango.  Back in 2011 they had 8500 CPU cores!  I might be able to play Skyrim in full resolution with that.
Arik Hesseldahl talks to Kevin Clark of LucasFilm's Industrial Light & Magic about the data center that serves the famously geeky and CGI-intensive company.

Watch the video here.

While promoting his new documentary series on Today, Zachary Quinto hinted that the third installment in the Star Trek franchise could be coming sooner rather than later.
"I think it's on the horizon," the 37-year-old actor, who plays Spock, said. "Things are rumbling, so I have a feeling that we will be in production sometime in the next six months."
