Emerging Realism Driving Precompetitive Collaboration

Traditionally,  #pharmaceutical  companies have conducted drug discovery research in-house. However, the last 10 years have convinced experts that the pharmaceutical industry must change its research and business model in order to remain viable. As a result of this, #Precompetitive   #research  collaborations are an emerging trend in the #pharma  and #biotech  world, primarily but not limited to the areas of drug discovery and development.

Happy Birthday to Christopher Nolan!!!

On this day, when the director of The Dark Knight Trilogy turns 44 years old, we present to you 10 stunning facts that you probably didn't know about this one of the greatest director of our generation!

Nolan’s left handed.

He didn’t go to any film school. Everything Christopher Nolan knows, he taught himself. Curiosity is the best teacher, after all.

Christopher Nolan has never done a re-shoot. Think about that for a moment. Think about how David Yates reshot the epilogue of HP7.2, or the many weeks Peter Jackson spent reshooting the Hobbit to turn it into a trilogy. Think about how complicated some of the stunts and shots were in the Batman movies. Yeah. That was all done in one go.

Shoots on film, not digital. In a world where everything is increasingly becoming digital, he has experienced some pressure to switch, but he’s adamant about his medium.  “It’s cheaper to work on film, it’s far better looking, it’s the technology that’s been known and understood for a hundred years, and it’s extremely reliable,” said Nolan. “We save a lot of money shooting on film and projecting film and not doing digital intermediates. In fact, I’ve never done a digital intermediate.”

Doesn’t believe in 3D. Nolan says the whole point of photography is that it’s three dimensional. Until the industry can figure out how to do it right, he will stick with film and the occasional IMAX.

Also doesn’t believe in CGI. Anything that can be actually filmed, miniature or real, is done that way. Nolan even tried to do the thousand bats swamp at the end of Batman Begins with real bats at first. When that didn’t work out, he stuck a dead bat on a stick and tossed it around so that his team could get an idea of what a bat looks like in flight for their CGI swarm.

Only storyboards action scenes. Where some directors prefer to plan most things out, Nolan likes to leave room for improvisation.

○ Follows one of the most basic rules of photography: don’t use zoom lenses! If you have a huge beautiful camera, move it closer to the subject!

Uses only one camera unit for dramatic sequences. Most directors prefer two or even three units in different spots so that they can get different angles, etc. Nolan prefers to have minimal shots so he can choose the ones he wants himself, which brings me to my next point:

He can memorize shots and edit entire film sequences in his head. Filming with only one unit, minimal takes and real stunts makes the editing process fairly simple, even on huge films like Batman. Well, it’s simple to Christopher Nolan, at least.
