Growing Trend for Less CG?

The Hollywood Reporter has talked to director Danny Boyle about his film “Sunshine”. He’s not entirely alone in trying to dial back the overwhelming use of CG to tell a story this summer: 20th Century Fox’s “Live Free or Die Hard” has been praised for the verisimilitude in its stunts because they were done by stuntmen and only rarely were computer-assisted. “I think there’s a staleness to films that rely too heavily on CG — shows can be killed by previz,” says Wood, now working on Buena Vista’s CG-fest “The Chronicles of Narnia: Prince Caspian.” “I felt like on ’Sunshine’ that I was making shots for Danny Boyle’s film in a way that Danny Boyle would have made himself.”
