Sam Raimi’s Production Diary


I know I’ve been talking quite a bit about the upcoming Warcraft-based movie, but this tidbit from Wired’s Underwire blog called Alt Text: Sam Raimi’s Warcraft Movie Production Diary was just too good to pass up.

Some of the highlights? Check it out:

Day 1
I’ll say it: I, Sam Raimi, am a genius. My decision to hire actual World of Warcraft players as extras was a stroke of brilliance. We get lots of publicity, they work for free and some of them are bringing their own swords! This is going to be great.

Day 2
OK, problems. To start with, there’s a huge line of extras waiting to get on the set, and every time we get a bunch of them in, the scenery crashes. My technical advisers say this is normal for a launch, and they’re working on it. In the meantime, they suggest that I build several identical sets, and encourage the extras to transfer to the other sets.

Oh, and that’s only the beginning. It gets so much better.
