Extra interessant is het interview dat ATNzone had met producer Chris Lee die mede verantwoordelijk was voor Starship Troopers en nu de laatste hand legt aan de Final Fantasy film.Een stuk uit het interview:How did you go about creating this film?
Director Hironobu Sakaguchi knew how he wanted the film to look and it's been a four-year process to achieve it. We took a year and a half just developing the proprietary software to build the film elements. The animation process took a year and the compositing took a year and a half. Each [individual] shot has 430 separate layers.
Our sets for the film are 360-degree virtual sets. You can actually move the cameras anywhere in the environment. In the DVD or the PS2 [game] version, there will be an option where you will be able to see different camera angles or move the camera anywhere in the environment. The DVD will be a 2-disc set - we have been working on it for four months already. [Laughing]De DVD-versie van deze film lijkt me sowieso al een absolute must-have. Wanneer we die in Nederland en Belgie mogen verwachten blijft voor mij enkel nog maar de vraag.
