Subject: IMAX involvement ( 1 of 4 )
Posted by Simo

Question for Douglas (although anyone else who knows is welcome to answer!).

A couple of years ago, when I interviewed you for ZZ9, you mentioned an idea you had for shooting the HHGG film in IMAX, using parts of the screen, so that for example, a normal-sized image of Arthur waking up would be in the bottom corner while the Vogon ships appeared at the top.

I was reminded of this idea this week when I saw a clip (on Film 99) of the new short which Terry Jones has made for the new enormo-dome IMAX in London: there was a normal size John Cleese walking onto the bottom corner of the screen.

Did you have any informal involvement with Terry's film, or is this just the cinematic equivalent of convergent evolution?
