VES Screening: I Am Legend

i_am_legend.sized.jpg A special treat for all of you that are subscribed to this blog via RSS or email! Last night I attended a VES screening of I am Legend. After the screening there was a discussion panel from Imageworks showing and describing some of the work that went into creating the creatures and environments.

The film itself was great, much better than the book/novella by Matheson, I felt. Even the ending was better than the book. The supervisors described how they created two endings to the movie, and didn't find out which ending the production would use until a couple of weeks before the films release! The film switches between the present and the past, the past being of a thriving New York metropolis, unspoiled by a cure for cancer that goes wrong. The present is of Robert Neville, a soldier and scientist who is immune, trying to find the a current cure for all the creatures that only emerge at night. The sound design is excellent, and conveys a definite sense of loneliness, his only companion being his daughters dog that he was held custodian of when he put them on a chopper out of the city in the past. Through his basement research lab, we find the reasons and his attempts to solve the mutated cancer gene which cause aggression.

Welcome to my new blog powered by Movable Type. This is the first post on my blog and was created for me automatically when I finished the installation process. But that is ok, because I will soon be creating posts of my own!

This is my last post for the year. It just hit December, and I've been doing a bunch of things that don't involve DigitalGypsy. Come back in the New Year to see Digital Gypsy's new look, new commenting system, and new community! It's been busted for a little while since the upgrade from 3.2 to 4, and I definitely need to fix that.

Feel free to comment in this entry what you'd like to see more of starting next year. Thanks for visiting, and have a happy holiday season!
