Produktbeschreibungen

Buchrückseite

Diversely illustrated with 275 photographs and illustrations, The Making of Life of Pi tells the inside story of how renowned Academy Award-winning director Ang Lee brought Yann Martel's international bestseller to life as a 3-D film.

With a rich, entertaining text and a wide variety of facts, anecdotes, visual portfolios, and sidebars sure to delight readers of all ages, The Making of Life of Pi follows the making of the film from pre-production through final cut. Of course, you'll meet Suraj Sharma, the sixteen-year-old unknown Indian high-school student who won the part of Pi although he had no acting experience and didn't even know how to swim—yet in the end performed all of his own stunts. You'll learn about the massive wave tank, custom-built for the film that replicated a vast, stormy ocean in all its moods, thanks to a complex and specially devised menu of wave and wind combinations, some really powerful machinery, and tons of water. You'll get to look inside the fifty-page fully illustrated "survival guide" that shipwreck survivor Steven Callahan created for Pi to consult on his raft. And you'll read about King, Themis, Minh, and Jonas, the four Bengal tigers used in the film—and discover how visual effects were able to create a seamless 3-D image of the tiger Richard Parker.

A foreword by Yann Martel, an introduction by Ang Lee, and an incredible range of visual materials—fine art, vintage archival imagery, and commissioned portfolios by photographer Mary Ellen Mark and artist Alexis Rockman—supplement the film's storyboards, sketches, and stills, rounding out this highly experiential book for lovers of the novel and film viewers alike.

Über den Autor und weitere Mitwirkende

Jean-Christophe Castelli worked as a magazine editor and freelance writer, publishing articles in Vanity Fair, Esquire, and Filmmaker, before moving into film. For seven years, he was the story editor at the independent production company Good Machine. There he developed many film projects and began a long working relationship with Ang Lee, first with the cultural research on The Ice Storm (1997), followed by the story development of Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon (2000). While pursuing his own writing projects, Castelli has continued to do development and research for Lee, most recently as associate producer on Life of Pi (2012). He lives in New York City with his wife and twin sons.

3 von 4 Kunden fanden die folgende Rezension hilfreich Von Parka TOP 1000 REZENSENT am 9. November 2012
Format: Gebundene Ausgabe
Länge: 1:06 Minuten
This is a beautiful movie companion to the film Life of Pi. It's a 160-page hardcover with surprisingly thick paper stock.

The book looks behind the scenes at the film making process. There are stories on how filming is done in India and Taiwan, scouting and looking for locations, how the wave pool was created, when and how the computer graphics are used, the animals, etc.

The more interesting section is on filming in India where it's so busy and there's this huge difference in culture. There aren't much written about Taiwan, the country itself, but there's a lot on the wave pool that was built at an old deserted airport provided by the government.

Interestingly, Ang Lee is not one who uses storyboards for film-making, so there aren't a lot of art in the book. He likes to go with the flow, so to speak. There are plenty of photos on set and on their scouting trips.

Nice movie companion for the film.

A behind the scenes look at how the movie is made. If you are interested in movie making, or like me, in love with this story, this book is an excellent reference to better understand the world of Pi.

A small but well-executed glimpse behind the scenes 1. Februar 2013
Von Thomas E Beach - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Gebundene Ausgabe Verifizierter Kauf
Anyone as interested in film-making and in love with this movie as I am was bound to be disappointed by this book. (Basically, I wanted to know everything!) In the end, I really enjoyed the details it provided, the numerous productions stills and the excellent design and layout. While I might have liked even more narrative detail, I am grateful to Mr. Castelli for provided the best source I've seen so far in covering the effort that went into creating this wonderful movie.

Fascinating and beautiful 28. August 2013
Von Cloggie Downunder - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Gebundene Ausgabe
The Making of Life of Pi, a film, a journey by Jean-Christophe Castelli is a lavishly illustrated book that examines the steps leading up to the production of the Ang Lee movie, as well as the actual filming and post-production. Each section is enhanced and supported by a myriad of glossy colour images. There is a forward by Yann Martel, author of the book inspiring the movie, a preface by Castelli and an introduction by the movie director, Ang Lee. The how, when and why of 3D is explained; there is plenty of technical detail. The process of making a computer graphic tiger, hyena and storm are explained. This book is full of fascinating facts that will give the reader an appreciation of the talents of the cast (especially Suraj Sharma) and the crew, and, although it does remove some of the mystique, it will make the reader want to see the movie again. Fascinating and beautiful.
