7. Green Screen

Many of the cast were relative newcomers to the green screen work at Studio Babelsberg, but as Jim Sturgess told Empire, they took to it quickly. “Doona and I really got to know each other just from being stuck up there, talking bullshit,” he remembered. Glass and his VFX team were on hand to supervise the tech.

“[Green screen work] can be very difficult, but all actors are different. Some like to play off their environment; some are much more introverted in the way that they build their character, so it can vary a great deal but the big green-screen environment. It’s very strange, potentially intimidating even, unless there’s a clear understanding of what’s going on [in a sequence], so we always try to build pre-viz that we can show the actors. They can look at it and go, “Oh, okay. So when I look over there that’s what I see.” You try to help them get into the world as much as possible.

1 Fear
The film was criminally under-supported by the multiplexes who were terrified of such an unclassifiable film. it was given a very short release on the minimum number of screens and tended to be on their smaller ones too. It deserves to fly on disc, hopefully word of mouth will have time to take it to true cult status. A double bill with Code 46 at the PCC perhaps? More

2 Amazing
I adored this movie, such an ambitious project to under-take. Each story in the movie had me hooked and I couldn't take my eyes off it. I'm a little sad that this movie flopped so badly but if ever the words 'cult classic' were used to describe a movie, surely this will be the ultimate example in a few years to come. p.s. the above piece is very good More
