Square one for Ender’s Game was to film all the kids strapped on to bungee chords and see what they could get.
Well, that was the idea for some people. Which is why a professional was called in.
Yesterday Ender’s Game Blog was updated and we have a look at the director Gavin Hood marking off another scene finished on the set of “Ender’s Game”.
The last bit of the post reads:
Here you see him crossing off a completed shot of his detailed story boards in the zero g battle room where our young actors, in their zero g training suits, are showing off the high flying skills they’ve learned from our veteran stunt coordinator Garrett Warren.

Seems like these scenes are getting a lot of effort put into them. Which makes me feel a great deal of relief knowing that the film won’t look like a Twilight Zone episode.
As for the pictures on the storyboard, I have a great imagination but little interpretation of what scenes they could possibly be from. The second row from the bottom looks like Asa (Ender) or Aramis (Bean) on some controls. The row of pictures above those look like, possibly, Asa (Ender), again, in his training suit. The others I say to be speculated on what they contain, or I’ll leave it up to you guys to discover what they show.
Also, I want to point out that in the picture there is a green wall of some kind. It could possibly be a green screen for CGI effects. I’m not to familiar with these tools but I can assume they are. Or the walls just happen to be a neon green there. (shrugs)
I wonder for what scenes they would need a green screen…any guesses?
