Video: Mark Fergus

About the first Iron Man, someone told me they had been making it up as they went along. I didn’t believe it.
For such a humongous production, this was surely impossible. Well, after listening to this interview with Mark Fergus, I must suspend my disbelief.

“There’s a lot of ideas that I think needed to be paired back, as maybe belong in the sequel,” Fergus says and also:”It had the vibe of an indie film. The collaborative spirit and the fun and the tension that you would expect on some giant movie wasn’t there. It felt like an intimate family kinda trying to figure out problems and work through stuff.”

Makes me want to watch the film again.

With thanks to Louise Lee Mei and Niels Abercrombie.
