Re: Burk in Australia - STID "more accessable than the last one"
A couple of quotes which weren't in that article:
At a recent Australian preview of footage for the sequel Star Trek into Darkness (which stars Chris Pine), producer Bryan Burk explained how the Bad Robot production team was the biggest obstacle to the film being in 3D.
Burk described not understanding the original series, which to him involved ''a lot of people just standing around, on a bridge, talking to a big television screen''. So Burk felt he was the perfect producer for the Star Trek reboot. ''If we were going to make a film, we were going to make a film that I did like,'' he says.
Nor did the Bad Robot team love 3D after too many pale imitations of Avatar. ''If we were going to do it, we had to make it special. We literally had to go shot-by-shot, frame-by-frame, pushing things further than they'd ever been pushed. Our stereographer would regularly say, 'You can't go further than this. Nobody goes further than this.' And we'd all say: 'Go further!'''
Kim: I'm detecting some weird technobabble.
Janeway: A possibly dangerous anomaly that we know nothing about?
Kim: Yeah. I suppose we should steer clear.
Janeway: Ha! Good one, Ensign. Take us in, Mr. Paris.
