Justin Marks Talks He-Man

Tuesday, November 20, 2007 by Red

Toyfare magazine chats with Justin marks about his vision for He-Man that will hopefully make it to the big screen.
Justin Marks talks about what he has planned for He-Man and Skeletor.

TOYFARE: How did you get involved with writing the He-Man script?

JUSTIN MARKS: He-Man came about as a result of a mutual collaboration with [co-screenwriter] Neil Ellice and the guys at Silver Pictures. We came together and married a take that we all really loved and that we felt would be true to Eternia for the first time. And we campaigned and pushed-everything short of getting on my hands and knees begging-for Mattel to hear it, and they did. We got in the room and we basically spoke through not only one movie, but three movies, all the way down through our dreams for the titles for the second and thrid movies and which characters appeared when.

WATCHMEN with extra segment?

by Red

Warner Bros had stumped up the spondoolies for Zack Snyder to go ahead and shoot a sweet little extra for WATCHMEN, the segment entitled TALES OF THE BLACK FREIGHTER. Apparently this extra segment might be filmed in animation, and might be released not as a DVD extra with WATCHMEN, but as a stand alone, available the same time that the movie is in cinemas.

Second up, another extra is being filmed, this time an interview with the original Golden Age crime-fighter, Nite Owl (not Patrick Wilson's character; his predecessor), discussing his career and his team, The Minutemen. The interview was based on a book that the Owl had written, and was one of the many pieces of back story that Alan Moore created to craft a rich world for the graphic novel. So apparently, 'Under The Hood' - the title of the memoir - will be filmed, 60s style and will run for an hour. Presumably this will be for the DVD release.

Filmefex worked on Hellboy II The Golden Army

Monday, November 19, 2007 by Red

Filmefex specializes mostly in makeup and prosthetics work. On "Hellboy 2," the company was involved in making a special creature for a scene that takes place in a troll market, as well as building statues and several full-sized replicas of the Golden Army.

"We have to prove ourselves on each film. The way it happens usually is that we get a smaller stake of the work and then when they feel we can handle it, they start giving us more. This was the case on 'Hellboy 2,' which we have now been working on since March." Say Ivan Poharnok Founder of the Budapest-based special effects company Filmefex

Filmefex, which has 10 permanent employees, collaborated with three other FX shops on "Hellboy 2": U.S. company Spectral Motion and two London-based companies, Creature Effects and Solution Studios.
