Masterclass: Bro Cinema’s adventure in bringing “Color Out of Space”, starring Nicolas Cage, to life
Portugal was for months the upstate of New York. A united, mainly Portuguese, team met a director from the mountains of the south of France and, with all their heart and soul, revived a filmmaker who hadn’t released anything for over 20 years.
How does a film like this arrive in Portugal? why Portugal? what were the decisive factors? what were the major challenges in a production involving multinational teams? what was it like working with a star like Nicolas Cage?
This film has the peculiarity of having many special effects, construction of “monsters” and, at the same time, a high component of VFX. Not to mention children, dogs and alpacas, a real puzzle when it comes to shooting a film.
