Are you guys excited for the new movie?
We had a chance to sit down with legendary filmmaker, Bicheal May. Take a look at what he had to say about filmmaking!
Shirt.Woot: Bichael, first off, thanks for sitting down and talking to us.
Bichael May: Jet plane on aircraft carrier, takes off, Kashhhhhhheeeeeewwwwwwwwwww!!!
SW: Indeed! Now, you're known for your jaw-dropping action sequences: shoot-outs, chase sequences, etc. Why don't you tell us a little about how you prepare to shoot something like that.
BM: Helicopter follow convertible, guy in convertible, bazooka. Missle sheeeeeyooooooooooo, helicopter kaaaabbboooooooommmm!
SW: Wow, amazing! But not everything ever goes totally according to plan. How much of your original vision would you say actually makes it to the screen?
BM: Car engine: Vrrrrrooomm vrrrrrooooommmmmm! Then, kajooonk-jonk-bajank. Robot. Bleep-bloop.
SW: Unbelievable! We feel like we're right there with you on the set! Of course, it can't all be car chases and explosions. You need to vary the action with scenes of dialogue and emotion. How do you maintain that balance?
BM: Hero, hilltop. Camera pans, music: Dun-dun, dun-dun! Dun-dun dun-dan-din-dun-dun! Hero speaks: cool thing.
SW: It's like you're a virtuosic pianist and the film reels are your keys. Please, tell us. What's next?
BM: Laser gun, pew-pew-pew! Sword, shwiinng-swip! Joke, joke, joke.
SW: Haha! Great one, Bichael! Well, it's been great chatting with you. Now, before we let you go, do you have any advice for all the young filmmakers that are trying to get started out there?
BM: Reel goes flicker-flicker-flicker. On screen, aliens: bazoooop. Fictional president frowns, speaks patriot. Cash register, ca-CHING!
