Three-time Oscar winner Thelma Schoonmaker talks about adopting 3D into her impressive skillset for Scorsese’s adaptation of The Invention of Hugo Cabret. Thanks to Kevin K for the link-around to the paywall-protected interview at ScreenDaily.
‚ÄúIt‚Äôs a whole new kind of film for us,‚Äù she says. ‚ÄúIt‚Äôs very visual, very little dialogue, lots of opportunities for wonderful 3D shots, because the boy‚Äôs job is to keep the clocks wound, so you can imagine the giant wheels being built. Everyone‚Äôs very excited about it. It will have a broad appeal, it won‚Äôt just be Scorsese fans going to this, it will be kids and families and Scorsese fans.‚Äù
…She says Scorsese is excited about the 3D work. ‚ÄúScorsese is in love with [3D]. He looked at Avatar and Alice [in Wonderland] and Scorsese didn‚Äôt feel that the 3D he saw was as interesting as in the old ones like Dial M for Murder and House of Wax. He‚Äôs decided he wants to be stronger with 3D to make it jump out at you. He‚Äôs going to go a little bit further with it.‚Äù
