Spectre The Day of the Dead Vlog. Sam Mendes‘ latest Spectre (2015) movie featurette entitled “Day of the Dead Festival” has been released. In the video, Sam Mendes, the director, talks about the location and occasion for the set-piece, and Jany Temime, costume designer, talks about the culture of the Mexican festivity. Anna Terrazas, the costume supervisor in Mexico, talks about the problems they encounter, and Kenny Crouch, also costume supervisor, talks about the massive amount of extras that needed to be prepared. Naomie Donne, make-up designer, praises the workflow and hands-off approach to the production design.
I’ve decided to keep my expectations tailored, according to the latest Sam Mendes/Daniel Craig James Bond outing. While half of us really adored that film and thought it was a perfect throwback, whilst maintaining a pristine modernity and fusing those two together, and half of us thought it was an imbalanced mix-up that didn’t really know what it wanted to be, the hope for Spectre is that it strikes the precise right tone, for once. Casino Royale was a great balance of old and new, and it seems odd that we haven’t hit that nail on the head since that initial Craig Bond film. My hopes are that Mendes makes Spectre a cohesive, classical, clean Bond film that doesn’t feel the need to shoe-horn in any superfluous elements that have nothing to do with character or story. Here’s hoping.
