^is that, is that a secret, who you want to do the visual effects? hmm. i'll float my guess and wait for announcement day

this post is to share a positive story. last night during conversations with friends, a discussion about matthew robbins led to a conversation about universal and disney which led to maleficent which led to me sharing the news that the director of ain't them bodies saints is now working with disney to create a fantasy movie, which i described, and i said there've been trips to new zealand mentioned

it was a funny(ish) moment then, because the room became silent. everyone was thinking about the life of david lowery for a moment. like i already said, pure jealousy here. in the context of the conversation, everyone was feeling jealous of lowery, tbh. and one friend quietly whispered "that's crazy" while looking at the ground and thinking about pete's dragon

how could i possibly be worried about how you're going to use computer effects, when i and many others may never be able to use them ourselves. it's flat-out the big-ticket ride and i'm excited for you

Oh yes. In retrospect my comment (I'm speaking only for myself here) might sound like arrogant or full of envy or whatever. That was not the intention at all, I didn't want to act like I was trying to tell an established filmmaker what to do. It's just that I personally don't really have much patiente for CGI-heavy fantasy films anymore. They all look the same to me, and they don't look good at all. But if this was any other filmmaker other than David whom we 'know' for years, I'd just say something like "hell, I trust the guy who did Ain't Them Bodies Saints to deliver the goods".

I think it will be fine. The CGI used throughout Ain't Them Bodies Saints was tastefully done; you don't even notice it.

Redford onboard Lowery's Pete's.
Christopher Nolan's directive was clear to everyone in the cast and crew: Use CGI only as a last resort.

I'm going to assume it's Bradford Young again until I hear otherwise.
Now you're in the *spoiler* place.

It sadly won't be. Timing wasn't right to move to New Zealand for six months! We'll do the one after this together...

Well, that narrows it down, at least.

For what it's worth, I would be more than happy to move to New Zealand for six months. Caveat: I am terrible at cinematography.
Now you're in the *spoiler* place.

Lowery's films St. Nick (2009) and Pioneer (2011) are available streaming in HD on Fandor, which you can watch on your TV through Roku and Chromecast
