Cloverfield Director Interview

The director of Cloverfield, Matt Reeves discussed the upcoming movie with The full interview can be read here.

- Was excited by the approach of the movie to do a "realistic monster movie".
- Mostly Handicam, but 16mm black and white footage is intercut into the movie.
- The movie will show the "huge" monster and "you see everything" about it.
- Doesn't know the number of FX shots in the film due to having frequent continuous takes (rather then cuts for closeups, distance, establishing, etc see in many movies). FX work is still ongoing with the movie.
- In casting they looked "for people who could improvise" so "could provide an intimate relationship with these characters".
- The teaser trailer was something thrown together so people can "have a sense of discovery again" and Paramount came up with idea to leave the title out.
