Rodriguez talking DVD features from movie hole interveiw
[quote]Q: Well, knowing that there may be different versions of the movie, released on DVD, do you do anything in particular to make sure you distinguish one from the other. I mean, as a film maker, do you make sure to do something to distinguish one release from the other? Like Peter Jackson did with The Lord of the Rings movies.
Rodriguez: Well you guys put out one. This one Barry put in that one that comes out next week that was just bare Ã¢â‚¬â€œ I had not put anything extra on that because I didn’t have time to finish my DVD extras, they put that out four months later because of piracy and stuff like that. So they’ll make sure you don’t put anything on there so that they know, well this isn’t the real DVD. The real DVD should come out fairly quick which will be just obviously the double disc with all the goodies on it. It has everything, all kinds of stuff in there. It’ll have a twenty minute film school, a new cooking school, Sin City breakfast tacos. My favourite feature is, you know, when people watch DVDs they complain, well the only thing about home entertainment is you miss that audience experience. Well the best audience is in Austin, especially for a movie that was made there, could be showed, the premieres with the actors there, with a 1500 seat theatre and they go crazy. In Sin City there was a big reaction. I recorded the audience at 5.1 so watching the DVD and you want to see it with an Austin audience on premiere night, you just click a button and they’re all there, so it’s really cool. And then Quentin when he directed his sequence, he just let the tape roll while we were recording or shooting, and sit and tape for an hour or so. There’s something like twenty minute uninterrupted tapes, his sequencing. You see him go in front of the camera and talk with the actors and directing and you hear the whole sounds of the set. It’s like you’re sitting right there in the set, seeing the movie being shot, from the point of view of the camera that’s shooting the movie and uninterrupted, it’s really cool, you feel like you’re right there and you get to see what it’s like to work with Quentin and the actors and how the movie actually gets made.[/quote]
