Speed Racer, film screening
In a profile on Speed Racer (2008) in American Cinematographer, David Tattersall stated: “To bring the anime world to life, the Wachowskis wanted something very different – not really a film look, a digital look, or an animated look, but a hybrid of all three. Our goal was a hyper-real look.” To achieve that look, Tattersall and the film’s technical crew used high definition video instead of film, an exaggerated color palette, and elaborate digital compositing and green screen effects. Lana and Lilly Wachowski’s homage to the Japanese manga and television series from the Sixties failed to turn a profit at the box office and received mixed reviews, but has since grown in reputation due to its high octane visual style and excellent cast, including Emile Hirsch, Matthew Fox, Christina Ricci and Susan Sarandon.
