Dunkierka – nowy film Christophera Nolana

Bracia Nolan grają już w pierwszej lidze, najlepszych i najbardziej cenionych twórców kina. Christopher po wybitnym Mrocznym Rycerzu, i świetnych Prestige, Inception i ostatnim Interstellar udowodnił, że potrafi robić ciekawe kino, mroczne, i co ważne nietypowe. Jego brat Jonathan wraz z żoną Lisą Joy ostatnio zasłynął serialem SF Westworld dla stacji HBO, a wcześniej serialem o sztucznej inteligencji Persons of Interest.

Dunkierka opowiada historię ewakuacji (Operacja Dynamo) batalionu aliantów złożonego z żołnierzy brytyjskich, francuskich i belgijskich z okupowanej Francji, dokładnie z plaż Dunkieru (Dunkirk) do Wielkiej Brytanii podczas pierwszego roku II Wojny Światowej, w dniach 26 Maja do 4 Czerwca 1940 roku.

Film był po części kręcony kamerami IMAX 65 mm, także możemy być pewni, że pojawi się w kinach IMAX. Pamiętam jakie wrażenie zrobiły na mnie sceny kręcone takimi kamerami podczas seansu filmu Dark Knight w 2008. Są fenomenalne i specjalne przygotowane do wyświetlania na powiększonych ekranach kin IMAX.

Film kręcono na plażach Francji, właśnie w Dunkierze, a także w Dorset UK i USA. Muzykę od początku 2016 komponuje Hans Zimmer. Zdecydowano, że tym razem w filmie nie będzie efektów specjalnych CGI, aby w większym stopniu oddać realizm tamtych dni.

Zapowiedź filmu ma się pojawić przed projekcją Rogue One, tylko pytanie czy tylko w kinach IMAX czy w każdym.


The Mill at Calder’s End

The Mill at Calder’s End is a gothic ghost story in the spirit of Edgar Allan Poe and H.P. Lovecraft that will be told with 30 inch tall bunraku puppets and old fashioned in-camera special effects.Featuring the voices of Jason Flemyng (The Curious Case of Benjamin Button,X-Men:First Class) and horror legend Barbara Steele (Black Sunday,The Pit and the Pendulum) , this film celebrates two of my great loves: the art of puppetry and gothic horror.

The Mill At Calder's End – Official Teaser HD from Kevin McTurk on Vimeo.

The Mill at Calder’s End is a gothic tale that will be told with the traditional Japanese theater puppetry technique known as bunraku. Each puppet figure is controlled by three (or more) puppeteers dressed in black and hidden behind each character. It is my goal to make a film that celebrates practical effects and therefore there will be almost no computer generated imagery in the final film.

Kevin McTurk has been working in the effects industry for over 20 years. In 1992 he began his career in special make-up effects at Stan Winston Studios, working on Batman Returns, Interview with a Vampire, and the Jurassic Park films. He has worked for many effects companies over the years, including the Jim Henson Creature Shop, Amalgamated Dynamics, Spectral Motion, New Deal Studio, and Weta Workshop in New Zealand. The Mill at Calder’s End is Kevin’s second ghost story puppet film, following his award-winning 2012 short film, The Narrative of Victor Karloch.

Girls and Guys from Summits and Skies

The internet over in Japan was lit ablaze last few months by a student film. Titled “Celles et Ceux des Cimes et Cieux” (“Girls and Guys from the Summits and the Skies”), the short is a gorgeously animated trailer for what looks like an amazing yet-to-be-made feature film. Created by Gwenn Germain, who is studying at the French art school Créapole, the animation is also a love letter to legendary filmmaker Hayao Miyazaki.
