I don’t think that there is any other director working today who has a more distinct visual flare than Terry Gilliam. There’s a certain lunacy that can be found when staring at any of his movies and his next project, Zero Theorem, looks as visually mad as ever. So how did he create this world?
Apparently through the use of Google Earth, re-imagining ergonomics, cheap Chinese materials and working 14 hour days. Here’s three new featurettes for the upcoming movie, that gives you a glimpse at how Zero Theorem was made.
An eccentric and reclusive computer genius plagued with existential angst works on a mysterious project aimed at discovering the purpose of existence – or the lack thereof -once and for all. However, it is only once he experiences the power of love and desire that he is able to understand his very reason for being.
Zero Theorem stars Christoph Waltz, Melanie Thierry, Tilda Swinton and David Thewlis, and it it’s out next month in the UK.
