Guillermo gets real with digital filmmaking

Del Toro

“I remember when James Cameron was shooting T2, in the supplements of the [LaserDisc], I remember him saying the reason why the T-1000 chase in the patrol car works is because he added flares.”

That changed my life, because in one single instance I understood that the one thing you have to integrate into digital stuff is mistakes — water hits the lens, a drop of mud, an obscured spot on the image. If a monster hits the ground and the camera doesn’t shake, that’s telling you there’s no operator, there’s no camera, there’s no physicality.”

– Guillermo Del Toro, Director, Pacific Rim
