TION Since Jurassic Park saw the light of day 25 years ago the world of films has changed forever no men in suits or awkwardly opening mechanical building kits but computer animated lifelike prehistoric animals A new Star Wars trilogy and another one after that the Pixar revolution three dozen Marvel films live action remakes of fairytales and of course four new Jurassic films have turned the traditional studios into multi billion devouring and fortunately also generating computer animated entertainment factories But what appeared to still be the domain of the big 5 initially has become commonplace across the entire industry and furthermore not just limited to America either Looking at the Dutch FilmWorks slate of the coming months most films are more or less determined in quality by oh yes CGI December will see the start of the Dutch Belgian production The Daily Fables The Major Animal Forest Games No more hand sewn felt puppets but smoothly moving felt animation figures created by animators Who had thought twenty years ago that this could be produced in the Low Countries At the beginning of January a robot will be playing an important role in the Keanu Reeves thriller Replicas And Vals Vicious is scheduled for the end of January If you think it must have been really cold during the recordings and they didn t hold back on snow guns either I will have to disappoint you most of the snow comes from Mac computers Arctic a survival film entirely taking place in the snow was filmed for 50 in a studio using green screens The most astonishing films are probably Norwegian creation The Quake Skjelvet would not sell as well successor of The Wave and RussianGerman collaboration T 34 The Norwegian disaster film costing just six million euros shows that great film makers in a small country with a strong storyline and the right dosage of CGI can draw 10 of the total Norwegian population to the cinema T 34 I saw in Toronto and I was astounded by the Russian inventiveness in terms of CGI the film was only halfway so you could see exactly what was real and what was not only the actors were flesh and blood Even though this was the most expensive Russian production in roubles to date it was only a fraction of American budgets We also have another little studio production on offer Hellboy produced for Lionsgate This super hero production looks like a 150 million studio film but then without the surcharge of bonus guzzling studio executives However what all these films have in common is that they were not bought for the CGI or to be the largest spectacle except for Hellboy but for the suspense humour or the drama without which it would be like watching an empty vessel like Transformers 5 nicely done but the suspense T 34 is not only more spectacular than Fury but most of all a lot more suspensepacked
