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.

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.
