David Fincher has produced many works during his nearly 3 decades as a director. But until recently, he had never experienced directing animation. This changed recently with the making of "Bad Journey", one of the episodes of the animated series "Love, Death and Robots".
Although it took about 3 seasons for Fincher to appear as a director in this series But from the beginning, as an executive producer, he was involved in making "Love, Death, and Robots." In any case, Fincher was a fan of this experience. In a recent interview with the new York Times, the Oscar and Emmy nominee described the filming and production process and how the animation could satisfy his sense of perfectionism.
"Bad Journey" It was filmed in motion capture, and Fincher was amazed at the freedom that this method of production gives him by overcoming physical limitations.
I think that the view is supposed to be from the top of the shoulder and I have to keep the actor away from the frame - so that there is room for the camera - or I want to use a chainsaw to use the technique. But in making animation, these things are not important. "The atmosphere is quite soft and flexible, and it's an incredibly free, dramatic, and creative way to relate to a story, because a lot of action works delay the practicality and the possibility of doing things, but in animation there are no such limits.">
This freedom has extended to post-production. In the editing room, Fincher was able to change the most specific details until the last moment.
Fincher says of the editing process: "Of course, when you can change something later, you have to ask yourself, 'How far do I want to go?' "Should I continue this work?" You can open the effect files and say, "I want the chin to do this and the corners to be here." You are completely free and you can make endless changes. "For someone like me who constantly likes to polish his work more and more, at some point it is necessary for someone to finally come in and stop it."
