JJ Abrams movie pitch for Half Life
Okay we open the movie on Xen which is now a remote island in the south pacific, huge lens flare washes across the screen...
Except that lens flare was never in the script. JJ added them in himself. I didn't even notice them the first time I saw the movie.
Also, it was something that he did exclusively for Star Trek
, and won't replicate in any other movie:
I wanted a visual system that felt unique. I know there are certain shots where even I watch and think, "Oh that's ridiculous, that was too many." But I love the idea that the future was so bright it couldn't be contained in the frame.
