I hope you’re having a really nice holidays season! This update should have come a few days ago, as a Christmas gift, but life got me busy. You can consider it as a late gift, tho.
I have over 300 HQ pictures from different events Sandy attended this year, including some we only had in mq-sized. It’s the first update today (other nice ones are coming tonight), so enjoy:
The inside look from Warner Bros. at how they filmed the genre-bending outer space film features Bullock practicing space choreography in her now-infamous tank top on a soundstage, Clooney discussing the screenplay, and the producers talking about the visual effects and technology the film uses so seamlessly.
The January issue of Empire Magazine has 2 pages on their ‘Oscar Special’ featuring Gravity, and you can find scans up in the gallery:
The two actors were in fact very rarely together on stage, given Cuaro?n’s strictly pre-vized, physically restrictive, virtual- environment approach. “In some instances there was no George!” the director reveals — even when on screen Ryan was with his Matt Kowalski. “But we tried to adapt the technology for them to be together, [especially when] it was about eyes, them looking at each other. But physically there is only so far you can move bodies before they feel uncomfortable and you feel the strain and the gravity. We’d say, ‘Well you have to understand, Sandra, that George’s face is not going to be here, it’s going to be here.’ Even in the moments they were together there was all this kind of abstraction. What we did was rehearse the chemistry first so they got it and were just trying to replicate it through the whole thing.”
