Considering how crazy the industry is for 3-D product right now, there are surprisingly few people I would call "experts" at shooting in the process at this point.
Patrick Lussier may well be one of the few guys who deserves that title. When he shot "My Bloody Valentine," he did it all as in-camera 3-D. No post-conversion from him. And the same is true of his wild new movie "Drive Angry," which will be roaring into Hall H at Comic-Con 2010 on Friday, July 23, at 11:15 AM. I'll be moderating the panel, so I went to check out the presentation you'll be seeing yesterday over at Summit.
First, it's true. When you go to the Summit offices, you are personally greeted at the door by a shirtless Taylor Lautner, who carries you around piggy-back style the entire time you're there. And I've never actually been to offices where people were blowing their nose with $100 bills, but I guess that's what "Twilight" money does to you. Aside from those little eccentricities, it was a great visit, and I walked away thinking that we're going to see a truly unhinged ride when "Drive Angry" actually hits theater screens on February 11, 2011.
