Los Angeles, CA (PRWEB) June 10, 2013
CelebrityBusinessAnalyst.com today announced its opinion on unconventional methods in the filmmaking process. The site released its review on the back of a May 31 Los Angeles Times report on Joss Whedon’s upcoming film Much Ado About Nothing, that was filmed at his house in only twelve days. Filming for the modern Shakespeare adaptation started with Whedon fresh off the sets of The Avengers. Television viewers will recognize Whedon from his work on dish network shows like Buffy the Vampire Slayer.
Instead of taking a vacation between shooting and editing The Avengers, Whedon made the black-and-white Much Ado About Nothing in secret on a shoestring budget, and cast old friends from previous projects in the various roles. Celebrity Business Analyst’s chief editor made the following statement on the making of the film:
It’s a very interesting way to make a movie. Whedon’s approach sounds so relaxed. A low-stress environment for actors and directors will surely produce a movie with a natural, casual feel. Hopefully it will add to the contemporary feel of the adaptation of Shakespeare’s comedy. Should the movie succeed at the box office, this take on filmmaking should be examined further. It seems like a solid way for directors to have more control over their movies while avoiding traditional avenues where big budgets mean everything.
Much Ado About Nothing is considered one of Shakespeare’s greatest comedies, combining elements of humor with slightly more serious matters. Whedon’s adaptation takes place in the modern world, but the script utilizes the original text of the play. The film received strong reviews after being shown at the Toronto and South by Southwest film festivals. It opens on June 7 to only five theaters, but Celebrity Business Analyst hopes that it will do well enough at the box office to inspire a wider release soon.
Celebrity Business Analyst’s review of alternative methods of making movies holds a positive opinion. The site hopes that the low-budget, casual atmosphere of the 12-day filming process of Much Ado About Nothing will prove to be financially successful for Whedon and his cast and crew.
