The Bridge

Last night Megan and I watched the Director’s Cut of THX 1138. For the THX 1138 Director’s Cut, Lucas rather cleverly added CG monkeys. Inspired by Lucas’s simian revisionism, I unearthed some footage from the ol’ treasure trove. I couldn’t do CG chimps, but I did do some melodica, gave the piece a title, and tried to brighten up the footage a little bit. The original was shot on Super 8 and transferred to a now decaying VHS tape. Maybe one day I’ll find the actual Super 8 footage and recopy it. No plot spoilers for the bridge. Just watch it raw and unaware, and think what I’ll be able to achieve with some CG meteors.

  1. Who knows, with 10 million bucks you can probably add some cool CGI explosions. Don’t fuck up a masterpiece like “The Bridge” with an “enhanced” director’s cut the way Lucas fucked up Star Wars, “ahem”, A New Hope.

  2. You should check it out. It definitely resonates somewhere with our 70’s dystopian sci-fi discussions. I don’t think it is that good personally… especially the directors cut (egad). But a lot of the innovation that Lucas and people like Walter Murch would use in Star Wars is there.
