Hey folks, Harry here with some interesting developments on SPIDER-MAN. But first a word on this spy. This spy has been with me since late 1996 and has had to go under numerous names, but he is always dead on. And... as luck would have it, for this film.... heh... He'll be our... FLY ON THE WALL. As for the scoop... this is just your standard second unit effects stuff. As always ya kinda wished it was a bit more descriptive. But one thing I've heard that is about the costume, is that if they go with the Alex Ross designs... Spidey's eyeplates will be Black... not white. The word from those that have seen them is that your instant response upon seeing them is... That's Spider-Man.... Just like his slight changes to Batman and Superman and... well... just about everyone else... Here, I hear he's making ever so slight changes, but keeping the essence of the costume and character. We'll see if Raimi likes them.... no word on that side of things yet....
As you know, many effects facilities like to get well ahead of the game with heavy effects filled movies. well, pre-production test plates are being shot for Spider-man. Last Thursday & Friday in Stage 12 on the Sony Lot... green screen test plates of Spidey were being shot. Most likely for Imageworks. I didn't see Sam around but I did see Dykstra. Here's a brief run-down of what was shot.
PT01 - 2 Story wall (most likely for CG extensions)
PT02 - 4 Story wall (more CG extensions)
PT03 - Spidey on ledge (most likely for CG extensions)
PT04 - Spidey on ledge (more CG extensions)
PT05 - Lion's Head (?)
PT06 - CU of hand on ledge (more CG extensions)
PT06A - Hand shooting web and holding it
PT09A - Flying rig/green screen (most likely for web-swinging)
With principle photography to start Dec. 4, this is an early look at what Sam and Co. are going for as far as look. coolness.
thought i'd just share some cool news.
