MTV GETS THE SECRETS BEHIND SWATH'S SPECIAL EFFECTS
MTV continues their SWATH series with an interview with special-effects superviser Michael Dawson who discussed some of the effects challenges when filming SWATH.
Dawson says the most challenging effects scene was the village scene.
"They built the village out on stilts like a fishing village. If you can imagine, they built it out into the lake itself. We had about 10 huts we had to gas up," said Dawson, who is currently working on "Maleficent," starring Angelina Jolie. "It was all a thatched village, so we made all the thatched roofs out of plaster. Then we pumped through liquid propane, so it was really roaring away, and Chris was running through there, smashing people up."
