Ang Lee Tells Wannabe 3D Filmmakers: 'Trust No One'
Hollywoodreporter.com reports that Oscar winner Ang Lee said wannabe 3D Filmmakers should “trust no one” when it comes to 3D movie-making.
The Life of Pi director told an audience at the 3D Creative Summit in the British capital via a live link from Fox News Studios in NYC that anyone who claims to know about the format is “bull shitting.”
Lee lamented the perception that 3D was the preserve of action and animation films, arguing that the format offers filmmakers myriad opportunities to explore emotions and human stories.
“Don’t trust anybody,” said Lee, as 20th Century Fox 3D guru David Conley, grinning broadly, listened in on stage in London. “Don’t let anybody tell you what 3D is, including me,” Lee continued. “The stenographers on these movies should be the filmmakers. The best way to learn is to jump in, like swimming, and learn yourself.”
