A few years ago, I wrote a post that focused on how you can get some really nice low-light photos with a Cinema Camera.The article was inspired by this video, from the Blackmagic Cinema camera site, which showed a great video of a black-and-white film stills taken with a Canon EF mount.I've used this method before, but it's still pretty much the only way to get good low-level, high-quality photos....
How do you make the best use of your phone when watching a sci-fi movie?
That’s the question that came to mind when we sat down with James Cameron to discuss the sci-Fi classic The Martian.
We’ve already shared the details about the movie in this post, and we’re sure you’ll be intrigued by what the film’s creator has to say about the process.
In the first part of our interview, Cameron talked about the way that the Martian sets up the movie’s narrative and how it differs from the previous two films.
The first part takes us through the first act of the film and shows how we learn more about the main character, Mark Watney.
The film is set in 2025 and we can see the events unfold on Mars.
This is how Cameron explains how he set up the story:This is the Martian.
This isn’t the original script, but this is how he wrote it:I think what’s amazing about The Martian is that, by being able to adapt and rewrite the script and then also by having to adapt it from scratch, I was able to make a film that’s so radically different from the original story.
There’s not a lot of dialogue or exposition or exposition in The Martian, but it’s really about how Mark’s life is changed by his choice to become an astronaut and how that’s affected his relationships with other humans, especially with his own family.
This is the film that got him to Mars.
And, of course, the film was based on the original book of the same name.
This first act is where Mark Watneys story begins.
We’re not in the movie anymore, but the story itself was created to be a kind of story about Mark’s journey.
We’re not there in the same place in terms of timeline, but there is a kind to the story that’s not quite explained at all.
But, of that, there is something that I think is important.
It’s that we’re in the future.
We’ve all become more advanced.
We have computers, we have the internet.
There are things we can do in our daily lives.
We can have jobs, we can have careers, and this is not an alien society.
It isn’t even a very advanced one.
But it’s still a world that we inhabit.
And so, we’re not going to go back in time.
We are going to have a much more advanced version of our planet, and that’s something that’s happening in the second half of the movie.
This time around, it’s the future, not the past.
But this time around there’s also the danger of going back in the past, because the threat of our species becoming extinct has not yet occurred.
We see that there is some kind of a threat here in the world, so we’re also seeing it in the film.
And this is what we’re seeing in the first half of this film.
We also see that this threat is the one that’s been brewing in this country for some time.
I think that the film really lays out a case for how we need to be vigilant about this.
And that’s really the thing that makes The Martian so powerful.
It sets up that we need a more aggressive stance on the part of the American government, not only in terms to protect the planet from this threat, but also in terms for us to protect ourselves from the effects of climate change.
We’ll see what happens.
The movie opens on November 5, 2017.
