I agree with the earlier posters, amazing video. Intriguing to watch as I’ve spent a lot of time spelunking and paddling in this neighborhood.
I’m a little sad from a cinematography perspective to see them using small format digital cameras. The adaptation of a literary work of this importance seems to deserve 35mm cinematography or at least a full resolution digital cinematography acquisition format. Can only assume they don’t have a large budget for the film so especially admire his determination to “git er done”
I believe they are using the Canon 5Ds. If the DP knows how to shoot with them, it will look very good.
I am curious to know your opinion on the adaptation of Child of God and Blood Meridian. I will be honest, I am dreadfully depressed. No Country for Old Men was brilliant, but The Road was horrid. Maybe it was the cast or the Cohen brothers that made it so good; and the opposite for the Road. I hate the thought of Hollywood butchering his work sickens me. Child of God is brilliant, Blood Meridian is epic… They need to leave them alone. I cannot imagine making Blood Meridian without it either being terrible or a snuff film. That violence and his prose makes it so, that to do it justice, the film would need to be a real life massacre. I don’t mean lets do it that way, I am saying the book and prose creates violence in such a manner that only the imagination or viewing the real thing, would convey the true nature of the novel.
That is my little rant for the day.
This unfortunate, horrible accident is somewhat reminscent of Ballard finding the dead young lovers on p. 86. Makes me wonder if McCarthy knew of such a couple in real life who met this fate, or knew of a close call in a similar circumstance, or possibly read of such an incident in the newspaper. He could have simply made it up of course:
Any word on when Franco’s movie is coming out?
