In Response To: Re: Halo sighting (Postmortem)

: I'm planning to see this one next. Super exciting premise, and it's even
: cooler to know that cultural stuff like that gets worked in.

: I may be wrong in how this story came together, but it's super interesting
: considering what writing this film must have been like, not knowing what
: sort of technology might come out that could seriously alter a plot. Do
: you have to plan for that by writing a lighter, looser plot? Or rewrite
: the script as you go? Again, haven't read into this film too much, but
: I've always wanted to see a movie filmed this way (I used to think that
: this was actually how it was done as a kid, before I comprehended makeup
: and special effects). :P

Well, we, meaning human beings, have been the same for quite a while, so I don't think technology has changed things so terribly much that this kid's childhood is completely different from, say, my childhood--there are rights of passage we all go through. I guess I'm saying that technology wasn't really a factor here (I mean, it could have been, technically--the movie was made with film). I think Linklater set out to chronicle a process (or maybe two, the process of growing up and the process of parenting.) I bet many of his own childhood memories are filtered through this story, with some adjustments for time and place. If I were him, I would have mined the child actors for material as well. (For the sister character, that was probably relatively easy in that she is played by the director's daughter.)
