Pazsaz.com/TVoftheAbsurd.com: Interview with Joe Flanigan re Ferocious Planet


This one is in text, so you can read:

http://articles.pazsaz.com/fplanettr.html

This is an interview from April 6, 2011 with Joe Flanigan from the Syfy movie Ferocious Planet. In "Ferocious Planet," an experimental device designed to view alternate universes malfunctions on its first demonstration, transporting a group of observers into a nightmarish new dimension. The team must use ingenuity and courage to outwit the bloodthirsty creatures of this bizarre world, while trying to repair the damaged machine and return home.

Question:
What are these aliens like compared to the types you've gone up against on Stargate Atlantis?

Joe Flanigan:
They seem to be almost impossible to kill. I seemed to be very good at killing the other ones. When we shot this, we shot it Ireland, and we worked strictly on green screen, and we weren't given much in the way of what it was going to look like. And that's kind of interesting because on the show, we always knew what the Wraith were going to look like. And so, you had an idea of what you were looking at and what you were working with. And in this case, I have to say they're much bigger than I anticipated them to be.

excerpt:

Flanigan plays the whole thing like a war-weary commando whose quick with a quip and more annoyed than fearful of being killed. Flanigan says his calm demeanor was less of a directorial choice and more about the fact that he was mislead in regard to the size of the monsters.

"I didn't think they'd be that big," he told reporters on a recent conference call. "When we shot this, we shot it Ireland, and we worked strictly on green screen, and we weren’t given much in the way of what it was going to look like. And that’s kind of interesting because on [Stargate Atlantis], we always knew what the Wraith were going to look like. And so, you had an idea of what you were looking at and what you were working with. [With Ferocious Planet], we weren’t entirely clear what these things were going to look like until after we shot it, so I was just hoping that our levels of appropriate fear were there."

Apparently this was a 'satellite' interview where he got interviewed by a whole lot of people from, well, wherever (hey, where is SyFy's interview???) regarding the movie. More to come as they are unearthed.
