Tech details for Wall-E  JUN 18 2008

Interesting article on the genesis, sound design, and cinematography of Wall-E.

"We wanted it to have the feeling that it had actually been filmed," says Morris. Using subtle details such as barrel distortion and lens flare, gave Wall.E the feel of the 70mm sci-fi films of the Seventies. For the first time Pixar also brought Academy Award-winning cinematographer Roger Deakins and special-effects don Dennis Muren onboard. "We wanted to get the nuance of a live action film, and actually put mistakes in with zooms and framing to give it a more immediate feel."

Deakins is well-known for working with the Coen Brothers on many of their films. (thx, brian)
