At London’s Comic-Con RedCarpetNewsTV got to interview Nonso Anozie who plays Sergeant Dap. Anozie speaks about his character as being “a hard-ass on Ender”. How he is “a bad guy, but at the end you really start to see that there’s a reason why he’s been so hard on him.”
He follows up with saying he “had a great time working with Asa Butter[field]“, who he also got the chance to work with on Nanny McPhee Returns. Anozie also mentions the older actors of Harrison Ford, Ben Kingsley, and Viola Davis. “It was a really amazing experience I’ve had.”
An interesting part of the interview is at the end where Anozie teases on some of the film progression.
“We’ve got some little bits to do. I’ma go back to meet everybody again, because we’ve got a little bit left to do on it…It’s going to have a lot of things that no one’s seen before- a lot of computer graphics, a lot of visual effects. That people- kind of cutting edge. Stuff that nobody’s ever seen before.”
With a great cast and working on the film based upon one of the best Sci-Fi novels, who wouldn’t have an amazing time on set? Here is the video for the interview from RedCarpetNewsTV.
You think your job is tough? Try having to dress an entire imaginary, future-world.
Petra Arkanian’s costume stencils for Ender’s Game film.
Ender’s Game Blog gave us a treat about how Christine Bieselin-Clark took on the task in creating the whole Ender’s world costume’s out of scratch!
That responsibility fell to Christine Bieselin-Clark, our wonderful costume designer. She was tasked with making the future look — and even feel — real and tangible.
With science fiction, there’s a danger in creating a look that seems so foreign it becomes alienating. For ENDER’S GAME, we wanted to make a future that looked both functional and logical. We wanted it to be a future where you can picture yourself in their shoes.
But of course, it is the future. For the uniforms, all synthetic materials were used, meaning no loud silk florals. And for the flash suits… well, we actually had to create them out of thin air.
Christine built the flash suits from virtually non-existent fabrics designed by our incredible production team. The idea was to take cues from “extreme sports” to inspire our design, using real world practicality as opposed to the heightened reality of superhero spandex and a cape.
And the best part? They look pretty darn cool.
They also mentioned how much work went into making Nonso Anozie’s (Sergeant Dap) uniform.
I would love a Dragon Army jumpsuit if that’s not too much to ask! What do you think about original uniforms and suits for the movie?
