Dawn Of The Planet Of The Apes

Matt Reeves, the director of Dawn Of The Planet Of The Apes movie has revealed to /Film that he directed few scenes of the movie over Skype. Not just one scene, this movie contains lots of scenes directed over Skype. In one case, the director wanted to change things that they already shot. As the actor Jason Clarke was in Rome shooting for another movie, he performed through Skype from his hotel.

This is the first movie where I’ve ever directed scenes over Skype. And mo-cap enables you to do that. And actually that last shot, when I realized that that was not the right ending, I went to Weta and I said, okay, so we gotta do something different. And they’re like, well you’re gonna need a performance. So we did a thing where Andy was in London and he was at [his performance capture studio] the Imaginarium. And we hooked up via Skype and I looked at a big plasma and I talked him through what was going on in that last sequence as he’s coming down those steps. And we basically did it over Skype. And then I got the take that I liked and I gave it to Weta and I said, okay, here it is. Go get to work.

Stay in touch at home, at work or on the go – Skype’s available on your computer, mobile, tablet, TV and even from your home phone. This is the reason, Skype has now become the de-facto standard for video calls over the internet.
