Johnny Depp plays around on the set of Rango and calls it the natural acting experience

Dec. 23, 2010by:

This should put a smile on your face.

RANGO helmer Gore Verbinski is trying a new technique when it comes to computer animation. The video is titled, "Behind the Scenes: Natural Acting Experience" and it looks like the best time ever. Johnny Depp, Bill Nighy, and Isla Fisher are some of the stars of the film playing around on set. I'm so jealous right now.

As Depp explains, the experience captures the natural movements and reactions of the actor to reflect the character later. It's kind of like rehearsal for a play except with less pressure and no knowledge that your theater director is going to bitch at you during notes.

Check out the video below.

Extra Tidbit: They should add all of the natural acting footage to the DVD when it comes out.

Johnny Depp is a no-talent, hack. Fucking prick. He can go jump into the Ocean and die when they make Pirates 5 for all I care.

Never was that big of a fan of Depp either. His best work is when he does stuff without Tim Burton. Not too wild about those Pirates movies either, but to each their own. Favorite movie by him is The Ninth Gate, by far.

I'm very sorry that your life necessitates your being angry at and hating unsuspecting strangers.

How does it feel hating Depp that passionately and knowing he has absolutely no idea who you are?

Looks amazing. The dvd needs to have the option to play the whole film with the behind the scenes shoving simultaneously.

so it's like the filming of Avatar?

Maybe I'm not getting the "uniqueness" of it, but I thought this is much how Avatar was done. I guess some details are changed and they make the WHOLE movie like a prop-less play, so it's original. Either way I'll probably see it.

they're trying to sound unique but its exactly the same as what they did with avatar minus the motion capture. infact, i think it was James Cameron who first coined the term Emotion Capture. Johnny Depp sounded like an ass. but this movie looks cool so i dont care

This is what Wes Anderson did for Fantastic Mr. Fox, as well as what Spike Jonze did for Where the Wild Things Are. It looks like a blast, but Verbinski didn't invent this.

Though I have ZERO interest in this project-I have nothing but admiration for actor Johnny Depp. Ed Wood Sleepy Hollow Sweeney Todd Secret Window From Hell the Pirates of the Caribbean series Public Enemies Edward Scissor Hands etc etc-kid's amazing! a favorite.I'm psyched for his roles due up in 2012-Tonto in The Lone Ranger and the reluctant Vampire, Barnabas Collins! in Tim Burton's Dark Shadows!

Way to jump on the boat, a year late. This is just a cut rate Avatar mocap setup. Plus don't most animated films general film the actors as they do the voices on handy cams so the animators can make the charactors more like the actors plaing them?
Still looks like an interesting film, but if you're gonna pimp your technology, pimp something that isn't a few years old, and worse than has been before.
