[Get a "Behind-the-Scenes" look with George Taylor and his collection of rare photos, making-of videos, cast & crew interviews, and book reviews.]
Can Enemy Mine be appreciated by audiences of today? I honestly don't know if a sci-fi movie that focuses on two characters rather than a lot of special effects and spaceships could hold it's own against modern CGI. Personally, I can get caught up in the world of Enemy Mine much easier than anything like 'Avatar'. It's the human element that makes the story seem possible in some distant galaxy. This week I give you every single known behind-the-scenes photo for this movie.
This first photo is of visual effects supervisor Don Dow (left) and motion control photographer Selwyn Eddy (right) filming the Drac ship in miniature form. This is followed by a member of the German crew touching up the model for the Scavenger ship and a shot of the Bilateral Terran Alliance (human) ship on set. Next up are a few images of director Wolfgang Petersen directing Dennis Quaid in various scenes. Finally, we have two photos of early models of the Drac ship and one of the BTA ship. These were created when Richard Loncraine was still set to direct but scrapped when Petersen took over.
