Just saw "Rise of the Planet of the Apes" at a press screening on Friday. My review is coming soon, and until then, here's a preview — my interviews with James Franco and Andy Serkis, where I talk with them about the nature of humanity and the challenge of portraying a unique mind.



The interviews were shot in HD and were given to me on CompactFlash cards. I then assembled the clips together with iMovie on my MacBook Pro. There were more than a few stumbling blocks — I recommend Prism if you're having trouble getting iMovie to see your video files, for instance, and I found a number of online tutorials helpful when it came to using iMovie.
