I headdesked a lot during that clip. Anyone else headdesk a lot?
Like... of the two people in that scene, who do we care about more? Him or her? I'd say her, I mean, she's Ellen Page, her character's a mystery, and she's generating this amazing presence on screen. But the camera seems more in love with him? Why?
Plus, some awful expository dialogue.
Looks great, though. Plus, I'm really interested in seeing what someone of Page's calibre can do with that kind of technology applied to her. Mo-cap is almost as fascinating as early cinema in terms on enervation, but without the cultural milestone aspect. I wasn't certain that the cinematic body would be capable of projecting through the equipment, but it seems you just need more sensitive equipment that we had, and more sensitive actors than the equipment is usually exposed to. (I mean, for all that the actors in Heavy Rain could be competent and sympathetic, they're not A-grade.)
