Re: New Arrested Development episodes in the works

I watched the show again on DVD recently, and it seems like they got better cameras for the second season and beyond. The first season looks noticeably worse, with a harsh, noisier look. Although, some of that could be due to the encoding.

Am I crazy, or does Gob flash his junk in the shot where he is wearing a towel with Pastor Veal standing next to him? It sure looks like it. It looks like Gob is taking part in some sort of "Passion of the Christ" play.

Not according to a few level-headed posters who declared early on that they would actually have to be viewing episodes to believe it.

I'm still pretty sure that this is all a big hoax.

Spotted some frozen chocolate bananas at the grocery store today. Had to pick them up.

Only ten more days.

Re: New Arrested Development episodes in the works

Due mostly to scheduling conflicts, several actors on Netflix’s 15-episode Arrested Development reboot were forced to shoot alone in front of a green screen; their parts were then edited into scenes with other characters in post-production, according to two sources close to the production.

It’s highly unusual for an ensemble show to shoot characters separately — but then again, there’s not much that is usual about this season of Arrested Development. Each episode is centered on a separate character, and the only character that appears in every episode is Jason Bateman’s Michael Bluth.

Rivals Lucille Bluth (Jessica Walter) and Lucille Austero (Liza Minnelli) share the screen in at least one scene in the new season, but the characters, who are shown interacting in a restaurant, were not in the same room together, according to one source.

For that scene, the source described Hurwitz reading, off camera, Walter’s parts while Minnelli filmed her lines. The footage was later combined with footage Walter filmed alone. The result, says this source, is a mixed bag.

“It does look kind of like the Austin Powers stuff — you can tell that it was green screened,” said the source, who spoke on the condition of anonymity.

A second source told BuzzFeed that Henry Winkler, who plays the Bluth family lawyer Barry Zuckerkorn, was green-screened into the majority of his scenes. But, the same source added, “I’ve gotten to see a couple episodes and I didn’t notice any problems. It wasn’t the most extensive scenes, but everything I’ve seen, the post-production team did a great job with, so I wouldn’t say I’m worried — I’d say I’m curious.”

The effect of the green screen visually was less jarring than its effect on the rapport between actors, according to the first source.

“I think the reason most people like the [original] show is because it’s off-the-cuff and improvised. You can really see that the actors and extras really, really like working with each other,” this source said. “For a different show it wouldn’t be such a big deal, but because of the nature of the comedy, and the writing, and the direction, [green screening] is something that I think is not a good idea — and I think a lot of fans would agree that they’d rather it not be made if it is not going to be made in the same style.”

Earlier this year, Mitch Hurwitz explained that the way the series was set up was necessary because many of the original actors were already committed to other film and television projects by the time shooting began. “The only way we could get everybody together for what we’ll call loosely an anthology or a series was to kind of dedicate each episode to a different character’s point of view,” he explained to the Television Critics Association in January.

Representatives for Netflix, 20th Century Fox, Jason Bateman and Mitch Hurwitz did not respond to requests for comment.

Since when has AD been "off-the-cuff and improvised"? It has been reiterated time and time again just how tightly scripted it is and how very little is improvised.

I saw this on the road today. It may be too blurry to see:

It's so small that I can't tell if it's blurry.

Re: New Arrested Development episodes in the works

I'm not sure why it is so small. Oh well. The car's license plate was "MRF". No other letters or numbers on the plate, just those 3 letters. They are likely neither a fan nor a mentally retarded female, but some Arrested Development fans might get a chuckle out of it when they see it driving down the road, like I did.
