Nieuws: Jason Mitchell & Toby Kebbell over het maken van Kong: Skull Island
Kong: Skull Island wordt door fans en pers goed ontvangen, en dan weet je al bijna zeker dat we nog meer Grote Bokito films gaan krijgen. Maar goed, de website Collider had een interview met Jason Mitchell & Toby Kebbell en daar van kan je hier onder alvast een stukje lezen.
Question: How exciting is it to be in a big monster movie?
JASON MITCHELL: There are a couple of things that are at the top of the film world. This is probably the #1 top thing. You can’t top Kong! It’s the best! Every movie that was ever made was just dope and so epic to see. When they sent this to me, it was easy for me to say, “Please make me a part of it! What do I have to do?!”
What was it like to have to work with nothing there for so much of the film?
TOBY KEBBELL: There was a fair percentage of it that was practical. We got to learn to fly helicopters. When you see that footage, you’re like, “Oh, that’s just a bunch of CG helicopters flying into a cloud!” But, we flew them. They trained us to fly. Getting your license is hard because the classroom work is incredibly intensive. It’s more difficult than flying a plane. You’re gliding, to somewhat of an extent. They trained us to come in and hover.
MITCHELL: It was pretty crazy! I just thought it was a flight simulator, but they wanted us to be able to jump in the helicopter and make everything look real. They were like, “See those mountains? Take me to them!” And I was like, “All right, I’m ready for this!”
KEBBELL: You don’t look at the windshield. You look at the dials. All of the information is there, so you’re told. All of the gauges explain it. We had a Scotsman from the Royal Air Force teaching us.
