At the conference, we saw a brief promo clip about the "indie" filming of Atlas Shrugged, part one.
Mostly we saw the talking head of John Aglialoro, the producer. He affirmed that this version is intended for release, not just an "ashcan copy" to maintain intellectual property rights. At 2 weeks into a 5 week shooting schedule, he said he was pleased about how things had gone so far.
I've seen him talk in person, and he seems like a straight shooter.
From the 5 second teaser of an actor talking about oil dependence, it looked like they might be doing a lot of green-screen technology for the backgrounds.
Well, we'll see.
Anyway, as for me,
I'm waiting for Atlas Shrugged 3D.
