When teachers teach anti-bullying messages that we should all be kind to our classmates and stop bullying, do not most of us think, "forced" lesson or not, that bullying should be stopped? Unjustified vilification is the first step towards bullying and this book, which is about the conflict of very different cultures, demonstrates that aspect of social ostracism and hatred of those different from our particular social milieu.
The film, produced at Columbia Pictureswas Fincher's fifth feature film, following Fight Club Fincher also included in his initial crew people with whom he had worked before: His previous film Fight Club had scenes and locations, so he wanted to simplify the production of Panic Room.
Despite the preparation, he experienced difficulty in production with changes in the cast and the crew as well as the inherent inflexibility of his initial planning.
Koepp and Fincher agreed to streamline the film so the opening would introduce the characters as soon as possible. Fincher also sought to lay out the film so audiences could see characters make plans and thus be ahead of them, calling the tense foresight "a very cinematic notion".
He planned scenes in which parallel scenes could be seen through the panic room's video monitors and also intercut between different characters. Careful beverage intake, refrigerated medicine bottles, and Sarah's glucometer watch were intended as evidence of her diabetes. Three versions of the room were built so Fincher could film scenes from multiple angles.
Fincher, who had done pre-visualization for Fight Club, used the model to design shots and decide their sequence.
Fincher said, "What we were just trying to do with CG was to say, there's no camera operator, there's no crew, there's no track, and the camera can go everywhere. Fincher had two-thirds of Panic Room's shots planned before the start of filming.
Director Steven Soderbergh reviewed Fincher's test footage and warned him that excessive planning would make actual production difficult for him. Entering production, he initially planned to film the first half of the film in near-total darkness but decided that it required too much patience from audiences.
Instead, he chose a "shadowy ambience" as a backdrop for Meg and Sarah Altman. Khondji said he was fired after a conflict with a crew member that he did not want to name, but David Fincher said he and Khondji could not agree "on aspects of production".
Fincher replaced Khondji with Conrad Hall, Jr. An x-ray revealed a hairline fracture underneath one of her knee joints. The fracture was an injury from Kidman's filming of Moulin Rouge!
When Kidman left the project, Fincher continued filming scenes that did not include her character.
During the same time of Kidman's departure, the Writers Guild of America and the Screen Actors Guild were threatening to strike over contractual disputes, so Fincher was pressured to re-cast the role of Meg Altman before it took place. Since the film was early in production, Fincher was ready to shut down, but the studio wanted to continue production and find a replacement.
Jodie Foster was previously occupied with directing duties of Flora Plum before its star Russell Crowe was injured and left the project, leading to that production's shutdown.
She informed Fincher and his producer Chaffin of her pregnancy, and they decided to continue filming. Fincher did not want to rush production, so Foster changed her wardrobe from a tank top to a heavy sweater to disguise indications of her pregnancy. For action scenes, stunt double Jill Stokesberry replaced Foster.
The plaster took 45 minutes to replace, so combined with repeated takes, a scene that was an eighth of a page in the script took two days to film. Meg being attacked by Raoul and dropping Sarah's medical kit.
The shot was repeated so it would look like Meg did not toss the kit but instead lost it. Simultaneously, the kit needed to land in frame and in focus for the audience. Fincher argued for repeated takes so he could combine performances by the actors for "fluid" scenes.
He also repeated takes with Stewart to ensure that her acting would be comparable to Foster's veteran performance. Foster gave birth in Septemberand she returned to perform re-shoots, including the opening scene.
She also returned two months later for additional filming. Instead, editors Haygood and Wall revisited Burnham's scenes and chose takes where the character would appear less sympathetic. The shot was a combination of camera footage and computer-generated effects.
Koepp originally wrote the opening scene to be a series of shots that would zero in on the brownstone house, but Fincher instead chose a sequence of landmarks in New York City with credits hovering in front of them before the sequence transited seamlessly to introduce the film's main characters.
Several scenes also involved practical effects: Junior's injuries from a flaming gas burn and Stephen Altman's bloodied, beaten self. A team of puppeteers was used to move Stephen's sticking-out collarbone.Panic Room is a American thriller film directed by David benjaminpohle.com film stars Jodie Foster and Kristen Stewart as a mother and daughter whose new home is invaded by burglars, played by Forest Whitaker, Jared Leto, and Dwight benjaminpohle.com script was written by David Koepp..
Koepp's screenplay was inspired by news coverage in about panic rooms.
