Pearl Harbor tidbit

Posted on May 8, 2000

Someone emailed me this tidbit that originally apprear in Dark Horizons.

“A little tit-bit report from some preliminary shooting on the Michael Bay directed Pearl Harbor here in Hawaii which wrapped up today. I witnessed one scene filmed, which was primarily a shot from above the ground (100 metres). However, located at each angle to the centre shot, were several cameras. A few words with some of the production staff, told me this was all to do with the DVD release. Apparently, viewers of the DVD, will be able to choose which camera angle they want to view. This won’t be of just certain scenes, but of the whole movie.

This film will change the face of the way we view DVD, and will be the first major film to have ‘proper’ interaction with the viewer, almost allowing the audience to direct the film itself.”
