J.J. Abrams directed and delivered Star Trek, Super 8 and the sequel Star Trek Into Darkness, alot of fans have complained about his overuse of lens flare in the movies.
Here’s the complete quote from CraveOnline where J.J. Abrams finally says he went too far:
“I know I get a lot of grief for that,” says Abrams. “But I’ll tell you, there are times when I’m working on a shot, I think, ‘Oh this would be really cool… with a lens flare.’ But I know it’s too much, and I apologize. I’m so aware of it now.
I was showing my wife an early cut of Star Trek Into Darkness and there was this one scene where she was literally like, ‘I just can’t see what’s going on. I don’t understand what that is.’ I was like, ‘Yeah, I went too nuts on this.'”
“This is how stupid it was,” J.J. Abrams added. “I actually had to use ILM [Industrial Light & Magic] to remove lens flare in a couple of shots, which is, I know, moronic. But I think admitting you’re an addict is the first step towards recovery.”
Do you think lens he over used the lens flares and he have come out and apologise for it ?
