Director George Miller was able to create and share to us what may be the most intense and breathtaking action films to hit theaters in a long while with ?Mad Max: Fury Road.? Only the version we saw in the movies wasn?t what the director intended. But we were blessed enough for someone to make and post a black and white version that the director truly wanted in Vimeo.
Previous reports indicated that Miller wanted to make a black and white version for the film to accompany the Blu-Ray release but unfortunately didn?t happen. Luckily someone did the deed and made what Miller intended. A user named Nux uploaded the black and white version of ?Mad Max: Fury Road? to Vimeo for a short while but was eventually removed, of course due to copyright reason. At least we can take this incident as an example of how to follow George Miller when he says something right.
George Miller shared how it was right and correct to view the film the he intended it to be. ?One thing I?ve noticed is that the default position for everyone is to de-saturate post-apocalyptic movies. There?s only two ways to go, make them black and white ? the best version of this movie is black and white, but people reserve that for art movies now,? he shared according to Screenrant.
?The other version is to really go all-out on the color. The usual teal and orange thing? That?s all the colors we had to work with. The desert?s orange and the sky is teal, and we either could de-saturate it, or crank it up, to differentiate the movie,? Miller added. ?Plus, it can get really tiring watching this dull, de-saturated color, unless you go all the way out and make it black and white.?
If it?s any consolation, you can watch the awesome guitar guy in the movie here.
