Spielberg's Secret Project
Filmmaker creates the future of movies?

Has prolific filmmaker Steven Spielberg invented new technology that will define the future of cinema? That's what he told The Hollywood Reporter during a recent chat.

The patent, Spielly says, is pending and he can't give any concrete details, but whatever it is it seems to be something that will give audiences a totally immersive experience.
 
"A good movie will bring you inside of itself just by the sheer brilliance of the director/writer/production staff," he says. "But in the future, you will physically be inside the experience, which will surround you top, bottom, on all sides. ... I've invented it, but because patent is pending, I can't discuss it right now."

So, all this begs the question: What the hell is it!? This could be like Dean Kamen's Segway all over again, but let's hope the pay-off is a little better... okay, a lot better.

Maybe it's something similar to the digital 3-D technology that Disney is unveiling with Chicken Little, but it sounds more immersive than that. Maybe it's next-generation "smell-o-vision," or maybe it's a first-generation "holodeck." Let's just hope it's not some virtual reality helmet. That would be so '90s.

Spielberg is known to love working with celluloid, but he's also been a pioneer in the digital age, making films with groundbreaking CG effects like Jurassic Park and cofounding the high-tech gaming/entertainment chain GameWorks.
“Don't think about making art, just get it done. Let everyone else decide if it's good or bad, whether they love it or hate it. While they are deciding, make even more art.” - Andy Warhol

That looks like a photo from 50+ porno...

Spielberg speaks at USC! Updates on INDY 4, JURASSIC PARK 4 and a remake of one of his own films!!!
Source: AICN

Ahoy, squirts! Quint here with some news from the lips of one Mr. Steven Spielberg from a talk he gave at USC. We had a couple spies in the audience and we gleaned some interesting tidbits... First up comes from Marty McSkywalker who sent in a report that covered the same ground as the next report, but in less detail. However, he did catch this one tidbit about Spielberg's desire to remake one of his early films... Can you guess which it is? Read below to find out!!!

Spielberg also talked about how Hitchcock, John Ford, and other directors did remakes of their own pictures. Spielberg mentioned that he, too, is interested in someday remaking one of his own films: The Sugarland Express.

SUGARLAND EXPRESS! Does that mean Spielberg might be coming back to Austin-area to shoot? I love SUGARLAND for Goldie Hawn and William Atherton ("Yes, it's true. This man has no dick... Well, that's what I heard!!!")'s performances, but of all his early films I have no problem with him remaking that. As long as he leaves DUEL (even though it's a TV movie, it has an energy that couldn't be replicated due to the intense, and almost inhuman, shooting schedule they had), JAWS and CLOSE ENCOUNTERS alone. Although, if he really wanted to remake a flawed early movie, how about SOMETHING EVIL? I can just see the floaty red eyes in a jar all badass and CGI and cool...

This following report has the goods on everything Spielberg (yet, no mention of the Lincoln project), including the real status on INDY 4, possible 3-D, JP4, MUNICH and THE PACIFIC. Enjoy!!!

Hi there Harry, I've been a visitor of your site for a while and last night I had the opportunity to engage in a Q & A with Steven Spielberg at USC. He touched base on Munich, Indy 4, Jurassic Park 4, 3-D technology, The Pacific, and more. I'll take these subjects one at a time:

MUNICH- He said that John Williams had just started recording the score for Munich yesterday, November 9th, and that he spoke confidently about having it being finished by November 30th. One of my classmates was even bold enough to ask about a potential screening for the class, and Spielberg seemed pretty excited about that possibility. He also said that he did no storyboarding on Munich (he's known for not storyboarding his more personal films) and that he only slept 4 hours a night during shooting, not only because of long days, but because the subject matter refused to let him sleep. I don't know about you guys, but I'm really excited about this one.

INDY 4- Remember a while back when Rick McCallum said that the script for Indy 4 was virutally finished? Well, that doesn't seem to be so. Spielberg said last night that George Lucas is still working on the script with another writer and that Spielberg and Harrison Ford don't really know what is being done to the script.

JURASSIC PARK 4- Spielberg commented on a scene in The Lost World novel that was not included in the movie involving characters on motorcycles outrunning raptors and regretted it not being in The Lost World movie. However, he also said that "that scene IS in Jurassic Park 4."

3-D TECHNOLOGY- There was a recent online article about some new 3-D technology that said that Spielberg was developing some secret technology. Spielberg debunked this rumor. He said that Lucas was developing the 3-D technology and wanted to use it through Spielberg for Indy 4. He commented on the failed attempt at 3-D in the 50's as a way of competing with television and compared it to the current box office situation. He also said that he didn't like the idea of virtually immersing a viewer in a world because he feels it loses the art.

THE PACIFIC- Tom Hanks and Steven Spielberg are working together on a new HBO miniseries set during World War II, but this time around, it's going to be about the war in the Pacific.
Christopher Nolan's directive was clear to everyone in the cast and crew: Use CGI only as a last resort.

Gamblour.

Man, I love me some Spielberg. I can't wait for Munich.

I've given lots of thought to smell-o-rama. I know it's been tried and failed, but I was in the theater the other day. They just started serving beer and wine and such. And during a drunken scene with some skin and closeness, it really took me to that bedroom. Smell is such an amazing sense, I dunno, if I fail at everything, I'll release a smell-o-rama movie.
