Episode 71: Theatrical Trailer Discussion and Final Thoughts

Running time 51:34
Here we are in the home stretch, NarniaWebbers! The third Narnia film will be here soon! In this episode, Rilian and GlumPuddle discuss the theatrical trailer for “The Voyage of the Dawn Treader,” which is currently playing in front of “Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part One” and “Tangled.” This will probably be the last time you hear from us until after the release. So catch you on the flip side!

If you want to follow along with Rilian and GP, we recommend downloading the trailer, or watching it on YouTube.

    Oh, and gP, you think you're not naturally pessimistic? LIES. ALL LIES. ๐Ÿ˜‰

    No, I am not. Like I said, it's just that whenever I have a negative opinion, it's really memorable because of my screenname. People tend to forget my positive comments…like saying that Reepicheep was perfect in PC no matter how hard you try to convince me Izzard dropped the ball. ๐Ÿ˜‰

    Yay New Podcast! And good timing too, considering today is C.S. Lewisโ€™ birthday. Heโ€™d be 112 if he was still alive.

    Guys, on the comment about digital possibly contributing to the fake-nessโ€ฆ

    Digital is just a medium, as is film. About the only real difference is the size it shoots at. Both can look totally real or totally fake depending on what you do with them. This in particular is excellent digital. Fake-ness comes more from a decision to make it more dreamlike, as you said.

    I recall an interview where it was revealed that VDT was going for more of illustration than realism with the effects, so more like an illustration in a book. Which is much more artsy than going for real real real. (And more likely to win an Oscar!)

    I am not watching any of the clips either. I want to be somewhat surprised at what happens when I watch it for the first time

  9. glumPuddle says:

    Film does have a more lifelike quality to it. I remember going to see "Superman Returns" and thinking there was something about the look of the film that just seemed oddly "flat." I later found out it was filmed digitally.

  10. Malfhok says:

    I haven't seen Superman Returns, but I would venture a guess that the depth of field was off. Film, by the very nature of the way the camera is built, get a wonderful selective blurriness. Digital, on the other hand, requires special lenses to get that effect.

    Some cinematographers use digital because they prefer to have less depth of field. Others get the lenses and get the same effect as film. I'm guessing that Superman would have been shot mostly without the lenses. VDT definitely has a lot of depth of field and, in my opinion anyway, they are doing a very good job of emulating the film look with digital.

  11. glumPuddle says:

    Of course it's going to look good in HD trailers online. The real question is what it's going to look like after it is transferred to film. Which we can't know until December 10.

  12. glumPuddle says:

    Another example is the Star Wars prequals. Episode 1 looks pretty good. Episodes 2 and 3 look just terrible, despite having more developed technology and bigger budgets.

    Episode 1 was shot on film. Episode 2 and 3 were shot digitally.

    Filmmakers (especially independent/aspiring filmmakers) like digital because it is cheap and convenient. Chris Nolan is absolutely right on this one: Film clearly looks better.

  13. Aragorn2 says:

    When Coriakin throws that stuff and then it show the Dufflepuds you can tell they are trying to "run" away, and you can hear one of them screaming about a spell. Which makes me think they are just running away from him because he is the "Big Bad Magician" ๐Ÿ™‚

  14. Clive Staples Sibelius says:

    I think a podcast discussion on the Liam Neeson issue would be exciting ๐Ÿ™‚

  15. Savber100 says:

    Interesting podcast! Any idea when the next podcast on the reaction to the movie will be coming out?

  16. MagnificentKing says:

    I am really Starting to wonder if this is going to be like a lot of the series they turn into films… Everyone isn't sure how it will turn out and is totally pessimistic but afterward everyone loves the films. I really think they need to continue making Narnia movies no matter how bad this one has turned out to be!
