A new article from the Los Angeles Times reveals that ‘Snow White and the Huntsman’ director Rupert Sanders will make small sacrifices to make his movie the best it can be!
Early in “Snow White and the Huntsman,” several droplets of blood fall to the frozen ground in extreme slow motion, a sample not only of the menace to follow but also of first-time director Rupert Sanders’ truly painstaking attention to detail.
The shot was the last sequence filmed by the veteran commercial director, and no matter how hard the crew tried, the production’s artificial serum never had the proper viscosity or splatter. “It just looked like raspberry jam,” Sanders said. So Sanders insisted that a crew member draw about 10 teaspoons of the director’s own blood in a syringe, and that’s what audiences will see when “Snow White” opens June 1.”
The article also reveals some other interesting facts about the film, including that Chris Hemsworth’s Huntsman used to be a strong warrior, but has turned into somewhat of a drunk after his wife was murdered. Hemsworth calls the character a “tortured soul.”
