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

How refreshing, a young actress that actually speaks her age. I always thought it was strange listening to some child actors talking like adults in interviews, and although she's not a child, she speaks like like what one would expect from a teenager (and she looks a lot younger in those last pictures than she looks in the film). And she actually ended up giving some insight about Paul as a director of actors and Joaquin's methods. Really good stuff once again. Waking her up in the middle of shooting was something I'd never thought of.

 :bravo: I'm really enjoying these Modage. Thank you and well done. If I can give a little unsolicited constructive criticism, there were a couple of repetitious moments in this interview where she keeps talking about coming back for the second shoot and being shielded from what was happening in the rest of the film. I really did like this though, it was a refreshing and novel perspective on the process which we haven't really heard before. You could have a real future in interviewing.
He held on. The dolphin and all the rest of its pod turned and swam out to sea, and still he held on. This is it, he thought. Then he remembered that they were air-breathers too. It was going to be all right.

What a great answer:

Were there any other Doris scenes that didnít make it into the film?

Just the scene where we were fighting because of the age difference and how it wouldnít work even though I wanted to make it work. When I first saw the cut I was so disappointed that it didnít make it into the film but now looking back Iím really glad that it didnít because when you watch it now, itís like weíre not together because he couldnít handle Dorisí love. Which I think is a better story than the age difference and it definitely makes it a different story.

LOL I love how she actually fell asleep for that scene. Fucking awesome. Great job Modage!

...this now got me insanely excited for the Leslie Jones interview Modage teased about on Twitter...oooh I'm down...hopefully she gives the goods like Beaty did. (<--?)

This one was fantastic and it gives a lot of insight into Paul's working process.

Its really cool to see how honest she was in answering her questions instead of the typical b.s. stuff you get in interviews nowadays.

Next up is editor Leslie Jones either Monday or Tuesday since it's a holiday. We spoke about the original 3rd act for PDL (conceived but never filmed), the most challenging sequence in "The Master" to get right (any guesses?), and the origin of the teasers. I also asked her the differences of working with PTA & Malick in the editing room (she did "The Thin Red Line" which is how she and PTA first met).

Working as an editor, this has got to be the one I'm most looking forward too, especially in a movie like this, I'm sure there are many things to be said about such collaboration. Can't wait.

She was a little tight lipped on a few things (clearly not wanting to betray PTA's trust) but there's definitely some good stuff in there.

I always found all this mystery behind the editing on his films very curious. I remember he didn't answer a question about why Leslie Jones over Dylan Tichenor on Punch-Drunk Love. But judging from what you're getting from these interviews I'm sure it will deliver the goods.
