Lime Review - Screen
Jameson Cult Film Club - Jaws
Last month I attended the latest in the Jameson Cult Film club series, and was lucky enough to spend some time with the new curator Andy Serkis.
The actor spoke to Lime about his role with Jameson, and why he chose Jaws as the first film to showcase. I asked him about the Spielberg blockbuster, and how he would tackle making it if he were given the opportunity now with today's advancements in technology.
“What I love about Jaws is the fact that it still holds up today. Even though you know it’s an animatronic shark, your mind is tricked in such a way that you’re still terrified of it. If I was to shoot it now, it would probably be a combination. I would still want some real physicality of an animatronic puppet. It would probably be CG-enhanced, but I would probably use the basis of that still. The human brain, the way it is tricked in modern-day filmmaking, sometimes it can be flattened out. What is interesting is where you are just not sure what is real and what isn’t.”
Be sure to visit the official site were the latest films in the cult film club will be announced, including their exciting Halloween season.
