Gareth Edwards Explains Shooting With New Lightweight Cameras For The Creator Brought More Freedom On Location

Gareth Edwards Preferred Real Locations And New Camera Technology Brought Freedom With The Shoot The eagerly anticipated sci-fi movie  The Creator, from director Gareth Edwards (Rogue One: A Star Wars Story) will hit the cinemas on 28th September and we were lucky enough to attend a press conference for the movie where the director was in attendance.  During the event I wanted to ask about the shooting process.  In the production notes for the movie, Edwards explains how they used new lightweight cameras that gave more freedom when it came to shooting, especially on real-life locations which he preferred to use rather than making sets from scratch.

Ten Actors Who Performed in Spielberg Films Just Before They Hit Big

Getting old isn’t all that much fun, for the most part. Nothing works like it did or is supposed to. We yearn for the days of our youth while cursing the sudden and stubborn limitations of age, even if, during one of those days of youth, we fancied ourselves as old. However, with age comes an ever-expanding memory and well of experience. The filing cabinets of our minds are continuously getting filled with new people, events and things we bear witness to.  One part of aging I have come to embrace is watching public figures - in this case, actors - move from relative obscurity to front-of-line in the public consciousness. We see these actors go from “how do you pronounce that Matthew guy’s last name again?” to seeing them win Academy Awards for their work.  In the case of director Steven Spielberg, his films have had a knack for casting actors at the early stages of their careers, just before major breakthroughs. In each of these roles, you can see the talent, charisma and craft that wo

With Industrial Light & Magic onboard to provide the special effects, one thing is for sure the visuals are going to be stunning. I'm getting hug

Lights, Camera, Adventure: A Journey into the Movies

Let's Go On A Movie Location Journey We are honoured to have a wonderful guest post from Justin Wilkinson from the excellent MovieLocationHunter website. Justin shares with us some of the iconic movie locations that we will be familiar with from being Lucas and Spielberg fans. Take it away, Justin! My fascination with movie locations all started when I was a young boy, awe struck by the outer-space settings of Star Wars, the time travelling in Back to the Future, the gadgets and glamour of 007 – ‘Bond, James Bond’ (Roger Moore was my childhood Bond) and the swashbuckling adventures of Indiana Jones. I never imagined as a child that these places were accessible – they were magical, mysterious all part of the alluring movie going experience. As I grew up my love of movies became stronger and my curiosity in what was involved in the process of movie making deepened. I would wait expectantly to watch the movies I had seen at the cinema again when they came out on different media – f

My 10 Favorite Star Wars Things From the Disney Era

These are hard times for Lucasfilm. That isn’t news. I thought about what to write for a time like this. Does Lucasfilm need new leadership? Maybe, but that’s what literally everyone is saying right now. There isn’t much I can contribute on that front. The writers’/actors’ strike has thrown studios into chaos. Future release dates are best ignored, whether you’re a fan of television or feature films. There doesn’t appear to be an end in sight for the strike. Add to that recent comments by Disney CEO Bob Iger, who said the studio intends to pull back from producing Marvel and Star Wars content. It’s worth noting those comments came all of five months after he said the complete opposite . Star Wars: Ahsoka premiers on Disney+ in less than a month. So I thought it might be a good time to review my 10 most favorite Star Wars things that have happened within the Disney era. This was a surprisingly easy list to make, even in an environment where making “top 10 most hated” lists are far mor
