Nicolas Cage- A New Technology Freak
Hollywood actor Nicolas Cage enjoys working with the latest special effects technology.
Cage filmed several scenes in Walt Disney Pictures' new adventure movie ‘The Sorcerer's Apprentice’ in front of a green screen, with many of the project's special effects added in post-production.
And while many actors bemoan the fact they have nothing realistic to work with while shooting the scenes, the actor insists he enjoys the work because acting is all about ‘imagination’.
"Acting is imagination. It's acting, that's what it's all about. I actually enjoy working with green screen because I can imagine all that stuff happening," said Cage.
"I really cut my teeth on a movie I made called 'Adaptation' where I had to imagine four page dialogue scenes with my twin brother who's nothing more than a tennis ball and a gas can. So, I was really up for it."
"I do understand sometimes when actors say, 'There’s no one to talk to' or 'You can't react to'. There's truth in that but for me, I've always enjoyed green screen and blue screen," he added.
