Jon Favreau interviews Harrison Ford
I was on one of my favorite websites today, slashfilm.com. It’s a great website that covers the latest movie news. Today they posted a great series of short videos of Cowboys & Aliens director Jon Favreau interviewing screen legend and star of Cowboys & Aliens Harrison Ford.
If you are a fan of the film making process, you owe it to yourself to check out the series of interviews. One of the subjects Favreau and Ford discuss is the over use of 3D and CGI in today’s movies.
I for one could not agree more with this belief, and I wish that the rest of Hollywood would listen to their short discussion. CGI is not the be all and end all of movie making. (Is that Michael Bay crying in the background?) The most important aspect of filmmaking has always been and always will be the creation of a good story.
Even the best CGI will eventually become dated, and look out of place. But a good story will always remain timeless. The video is below:
