I'm surprised Sony would take this much time to make detailed production notes, considering they thought this film was only going to make around 10-15 million dollars.
I'm also confused by this line:
Takahashi notes that the design team was also challenged by the fact that Godzilla 2000 is filmed in the widescreen format. “We had more space to fill in,” says the art director, “and CGI does help in that regard.”
Godzilla films have been filmed in widescreen since King Kong vs. Godzilla
. Are they talking about how Godzilla 2000
was filmed in 2:35:1 instead of 1:85:1?
