Behind the Scenes: Cosmopolis: A Specter is Haunting the World
Much of Cosmopolis takes place in the back of Eric Packer’s (Robert Pattinson) limo, which has been cork lined—or “Prousted”—to block out the sounds of the external world. While the limo provides a very intimate setting for Eric and his occasional companions as they make their way through the streets of New York, more than 160 extras were employed as the mob of protestors running rampant outside of the car.
This video takes a closer look at the sound design of this film, and the technical challenges of balancing the chaos of a crowd with the extreme quiet inside the limo.
When we began planning The Cronenberg Project, we saw an opportunity to build on our existing Higher Learning Digital Resource Hub — which complements our live events by providing satellite educational programming to academic communities and the public at large, beyond the walls of TIFF Bell Lightbox — by creating an in-depth resource for this same community.
We were pleased to collaborate with three of our academic partners — OCAD University, Sheridan College, and York University — to create David Cronenberg: Virtual Exhibition, which makes our collection of Cronenberg materials available to an online, international audience.
Comprised of scholarly essays, an interactive map and timeline, rare behind-the-scenes footage and interviews with Cronenberg’s collaborators past and present, David Cronenberg: Virtual Exhibition is an invaluable legacy resource that we hope will stimulate ongoing research and interest in Cronenberg’s films.
The Cronenberg Project is made possible through support from Presenting Partners the Government of Canada and the Ontario Cultural Attractions Fund.
