I really enjoyed The Social Network and the original “Dragon-tattoo-trilogy” so I’ve been really looking forward to seeing it over the holidays. I’ve not managed to make it yet – tomorrow maybe, unless the new IMAX cinema is too tempting – but the online (and offline articles) have been really interesting and plentiful.
First off, we have a broad interview that discusses early Fincher, including Billy Idol music vids. Some nice honest opions in here.
“I thought maybe I should call Hans Zimmer,” he says, referring to the German composer who scored Gladiator and The Dark Knight, “and see if I could hang out with him and make coffee for him for a while and take a crash course in how the fuck you score films. But instead, I sat with Fincher and said, ‘I’m not going to bullshit you. I don’t really know how to do this. What do you want?'”
Actually quite close to our last post about aspect ratios, I am going to write about reframing in post later on – so this article was right up my street.
