The Invasion Will Be Televised: The Cinematography Pod (2007)
*** (out of 4)
This five-minute featurette takes a look at the cinematography in 1978's INVASION OF THE BODY SNATCHERS. Director Philip Kaufman, screenwriter W.D. Richter, Christopher Vogler and cinematographer Michael Chapman discuss what type of look the film was going for and how they were able to get what they wanted. There's a lot of talk about how Chapman wanted to get the focus up close on the characters and then allow something come from out of the frame to try and get a scare. There's some very good stories told in this featurette so fans of the film will certainly enjoy it. It's really too bad that it's so short because Chapman is one of the all-time greats and it would have been great to have more details.
