Around a week or so ago we reported that 20th Century Fox balked at director Shawn Levy’s proposed budget for his version of the classic tale of Frankenstein. Still that hasn’t derailed the filmmaker who is committed to finding a way to make it work.
In a recent interview with Collider Levy talks about his approach to creating the monster …
“In the case of ‘Frankenstein,’ my whole approach is based on a mo-cap SimulCam playback so that it’s not a dude with scars on his face. It’s not just kind of latex and a costume; it would be a motion-capture performance of the monster—I can give away maybe not too much by saying there’s more than one in our version—and then I would go to Europe, shoot the movie, do scenes with the real actors and I would be able to see the motion-captured monster in real time due to SimulCam, so yes that is our technological VFX paradigm for Frankenstein.”
Before you guys start complaining about CGI this, computer effects that, let us remind you that this technique worked very well in Rise of the Planet of the Apes. And come on … multiple monsters? Please get this made. Look for more soon!
