John Malkovich On Robert Zemeckis' "Beowulf" Process
This project is officially starting to sound pretty excellent to me. Here's some fairly interesting stuff from Malkovich and IGN Movies: "Malkovich pointed out that he is not simply providing a voice for the motion-capture film. "No, it's not that. You do everything but then it's given a form of computer animation afterwards. But, no, we were all on set. We were all acting. It's not film. There's no film, there's no lights. There are video references that the specialists and technicians utilize, but it's actually all recorded on computer and all the data is fed to the technicians and then they will animate it."
