Paul Thomas Anderson / Re: Phantom Thread fan artwork
« Last post by jenkins on Yesterday at 06:32:05 PM »

Hi, Paul! I wanted to show you the artwork I made for Phantom Thread! Also, did Punch-Drunk Love really ever have an alien-related storyline and set designs that were taken out of the film?
lovely. thank you for showing me.
no, no aliens in punch drunk...always thought of some of it a sci-fi kinda way though. just the weird aliens landing vibe of the beginning. like emily w. was dropped into his lap from a spaceship.
Lewton, who is a literal angel, updated his post to include the tweets that came after his initial post.

my Call Me By Your Name situation is unique to me. at first i thought i should see it, then before i saw it i was convinced i wouldn't like it, and i found all the reasons i wouldn't like it. but it's been building itself back up for me, owing to being praised by Lowery, then i learned of Sayombhu Mukdeeprom, then i learned of André Aciman, and now PT keeps praising it. so i'm fighting against my natural impulses before engaging with the movie, which i haven't done before. fighting my impulses is rather new to me in general.

No, it rotates.  Ask, and I'll look one up for you.  Or use JustWatch.

Very nice, the production value is really high.

I think your vocalist would sound much better with more processing though (perhaps to make him sound more distant/reverbish) or he needs to dial back the growling a bit. His close-to-the-mic raw vocal kind of clashes with the rest of your sound.

JB, over the last few years I've sort of learned how to sing! Less growling, and a little more smoothness.

I'll be listening to this all day at work tomorrow. Really love the first two albums, so been looking forward to this.  :yabbse-thumbup: :yabbse-thumbup:  :yabbse-thumbup:

Thanks for listening Sleepless, Hopefully, you enjoyed it!!!!!!
He´s answering new questions now!!! He´s back on twitter :shock:

I could see this next to one of those New Yorker blurbs

I could see this getting praised by PTA himself during a Twitter Q&A...! Pretty cool.

Also, am I mistaken or did someone from these forums show PTA their artwork and actually got a response? Congratulations to Rooty Poots.

Thanks! Yup, that was me!

Aha. My friend asked the question about France. But it's probably gonna be a VIP screening...

Your friend should qualify as a VIP because of the tweet!

I'm not sure if the tweeted questions are quite as prone to the same kind of disappearances that happen with AMAs, but just in case, here. I don't want to lose the context to some of these great and hilarious answers. I was going to move this over into the other post, but it looks way too long that way.

Just in case it ever vanishes, the "have you ever seen this?" question is in reference to Julianne Moore's appearance on Billy on the Street, in which she acted out some of her dialogue from Magnolia.

PTA's Twitter Q&A:

Hi PTA, I was wondering which emerging filmmakers and writers are you digging right now and would recommend others to check out?
Hi Michelle - well I really liked this movie from a director named Alexi Pappas - called Tracktown.   it's good. Lemme think of more...

What is the most promising young filmmaker in Hollywood? @DSChazelle? @BarryJenkins? @JordanPeele?
I think they're past promise and in full blown explosion mode.  I cannot wait to see what they do next.  It's so exciting to have filmmakers to look forward to their next ones....feel like that hasn't happened in a while.

Okay. I've got this script. It's rock solid and no one can direct this thing but me... but I've only ever made short films and can't just do this thing with friends.
What now? How do I convince them I'm their guy?

Sounds like you need a Corner Man. and if you don't have one, you gotta be your own Corner Man.  I'll be your corner man....don't worry about convincing. just get on with it. head down. eyes on the road. good luck

Huge admirer of your work Paul, I know this might be a long shot but could you watch this brief clip of my portrayal of Tennessee Williams?
Richie - nice one. thanks for that.   

Hi PTA! Knowing the facts that Daniel Day-Lewis keep his caracter all the shooting time. Which one has been the more easier to work with? Daniel Plainview or Reynolds Woodcock
Well, I liked being in the wide open spaces with Plainview digging for oil.  Reynolds house was a bit claustrophobic.  I think Plainview would kill me, however, while Reynolds would just stab you with his wicked tongue. Plainview was less fussy, so I say Plainview 

Hi Paul! Could you suggest a lens to use with my Blackmagic Pocket cam that'll help give a coarser/grainier image?

You'll need an adapter...this might not be exactly right, but something like it...

Will you make more documentaries like Junun,I've seen it many times,it's great
maybe maybe.

Hi Paul! I´m a huge fan of your films! I see that frequently there are slab plates around your characters. Do they have a special/hidden meaning for you or they´re just a set decoration detail? @Phantom_Thread
holy shit, that's cool. looks like we like our plates. never noticed before.

I notice in a lot of your scripts you leave certain scenes open for TBD improv on set, like these ones from Inherent Vice. Did any moments in Phantom Thread derive from on-set improvisation, or any that got cut? And will you be releasing the script online?
This happens here and there. a feeling that you need a scene or a moment but not quite sure what it is phantom thread had a few but I'm blanking on what they are. the script should be online somehow, somewhere. not sure about that one. maybe i'll ask focus to put it out

Hi Paul! What was your favorite film you watched this year?
Call Me By Your Name

Hello, PTA.  Hope to see your next film soon.
You were open to discuss the filmmaking process in your early days, but around PUNCH or BLOOD, you became more elusive and let the films speak for you, even now.  What motivated you for that change?

always been happy to discuss my filmmaking for anyone who cares. i just took a few years off between those films - didn't have much to say then i suppose.

Are you a member of the PTA at your children's school?
of course i am. i'm the prez.

was wondering whether
1- Are there any cool movie ideas just hanging around your head at the moment?
2-Did you have any crushes on the set of Boogie Nights???
Please work with John C. Reilly again. Love your work

1) Yes i think so
2) my on set crush on boogie night was john c reilly

What do you think are the best elements to making a great short film?
i have no idea. short films are impossible to make well. make it funny? shorts that are funny are always good. serious ones usually kind of suck

what advice would you give to young, aspiring filmmakers + artists?
go to your desk and write and be quiet. and if that doesn't work lay on the couch and daydream.

How do you take a bus from Torrance to Reseda?

Loved Phantom Thread, what was it like shooting on film in London Vs. in the US? Do you think the process will evolve as it re-emerges?
I loved having in London and can't wait to go back. great crew. great fun. great tea. nothing but A++++++ from me. i get to go back next week and i'm counting down the days

france is the best country for fashion, art house movies, and romance. and yet, you're not coming here to introduce your art house movie about romance in the fashion world. why do you hate us?
I'll be there January 30th. get the wine and cheese ready, please.

hello paul just wondering why you were carrying around a copy of thirteen reasons why. did you read it & if so what are your thoughts?
OH MY GOD LOOK AT THE HAPPY COUPLE. what the f is this? we look like we're going to kill someone.    i don't know what that is in my pocket. probably the back of a magazine? holy jesus. can we remove  this picture from the world?

that's funny

In There Will Be Blood, are Paul and Eli Sunday definitely two different people? Some people have said they might not be! Such a great movie
two different people.  looks like twins to me, too.

PHANTOM THREAD is so closely aligned with REBECCA that the two films are almost in dialogue. It goes beyond merely influential. How would you describe that relationship?

What is your favourite Robert Altman movie? (A difficult question, I know)

Hi PTA! What are some movies you wish you had the chance to see for the first time in theaters?

If you’d wish you had directed the first 40-min of ‘Saving Private Ryan’, why in hell aren’t you writing a 140-min war epic we can all be excited about?
