Interview w/ Battle Angel film artist Mark Goerner

My interview with Mark Goerner (concept artist on James Cameron's Battle Angel movie) is now up here:

I've never been more excited about this movie than I am after talking to Mark...it seems an incredible amount of work and thought has already gone into it. Now let's hope we get to see it soon after Avatar. Let me know what you think of the interview...I think there are some great pieces of info in there...

Many thanks for sharing it with us!

Rindain: Maybe add some links for James Clyne and Feng Zhu homepages?

James Clyne was working with The Fountain. Have never seen a movie looking so good. The visual effects, it blows your mind.

He has also been working with:
Transformers
X-Men 3: The Last Stand
Poseidon
War of the Worlds
Charlie and the Chocolate Factory
The Polar Express
Troy
Minority Report
A.I.
and all of them are looking extremely well.

Good ideas, I'll link to James and Feng's pages. I'll also contact James shortly to see if he would like to add any of his thoughts /experiences of working on Battle Angel. Any other questions anyone here would like to see addressed? Keep in mind that they are under NDA, so can't give away specifics regarding what characters look like, story points, etc.

As for me, I haven't found any information that really matters in this interview. But, anyway, it's a valuable effort, thank you, Rindain. :?

And I'm looking forward towards not seeing Alita on the big screen. Real masterpieces are not suitable for big screens (especially BAA).

If only plot/acting/scriptwriting/etc. had matched the quality of the visuals. :wink:

Couldn't agree more! I can't wait to see Alita's *possible, probable* new designs! Though they had better not make her all "sexy" by exposing her XP

I hope they release the concept art for her!

Jesus Christ did he come off like an arrogant prick! "Fans don't make the best" something or other? BULLSHIT (LOTR & Peter Jackosn anyone?)! I understand the need to streamline aspects of an adaptation to suit how it will be shot, but what is so difficult in directly replicating Kishiro's cityscapes, technology, and Alita's look? Because frankly those have nothing to do with the script, they "are" the LOOK! I'm not sorry to say I have NEVER been a fan of sanitized American Syd Mead-ish inspired "futurism", and looking at this guy's website that's all I see! American sci-fi feels so damn clunky to me, Cameron's "style" included!
