As a sponsor of the 25th Annual Santa Barbara International Film Festival, lynda.com is delighted to put you in the front row of four fascinating panel discussions with some of Hollywood's top filmmakers, including a number of Golden Globe, Emmy, Grammy, and Academy Award winners and nominees. Join us for the producer's panel featuring Jonas Rivera (Up) and Jon Landau (Avatar).
(Music playing.) Jon Landau: Now it's not about saying no.
It's about having alternative suggestions, and then ultimately it becomes Jim's idea, and you say, "great idea, let's go for it." Jonas Rivera: Making a movie in animation is sort of like making it in slow motion. It's like keeping it about your main character, and keeping that narrative going forward in that character's shoes. Lori McCreary: And our biggest question was, do we wrap and then eat, or do we eat and then call wrap? Seriously! Mark Boal: On the first day of shooting, half the crew was like beet red and probably hours away from heatstroke, and that was just the first day.
Ivan Reitman: There's never enough money, there's never enough time, and often time there's subtle and sometimes not so subtle differences of opinion. Lawrence Bender: It's his church and his actors, in a sense, because he feels like he creates his characters on the script and he really lets these characters write the movie. That's really what he does. Mark Boal: I think there's a kind of consciousness raising that film can do, because they are the literature of our time.
