Part 1-DAWN of the PLANET of the APES Interviews with Andy Serkis and Matt Reeves
DAWN of the PLANET of the APES is incredible. What goes into this movie is heart and soul of the cast and crew. I was fortunate enough to interview Andy Serkis, Caesar, for RISE of the PLANT of the APESs as well. His performance is outstanding, Director Matt Reeves explores a new way of telling this age old story of man and ape, who is the most intelligent of the two? "we are all animals"
Part 2- "MONKEYING AROUND" DAWN of the PLANET of the APES, Ape Movement Coach Terry Notary
I might not make the cut for the next PLANET of the APES movie but I sure had fun trying. Ape Movement coach/Stunt Choreographer Terry Notary masters the art of translating ape behavior, taking performance capture to a whole new level. I'd like to give it another go, two minutes wasn't long enough to learn ape movement.
Part 3-"THE MAGIC" DAWN of the PLANET of the APES Visual Effect Supervisor's Joe Letteri and Dan Lemmon
DAWN of the PLANET of the APES Visual Effects Supervisor's Joe Letteri and Dan Lemmon take performance capture to a whole new level, creating magic on location in New Orleans, San Francisco and Vancouver B.C. Truly phenomenal work.
