Director Tom Hooper Interview “Les Miserables!” The “King’s Speech” Director Challenges Himself!

Uploaded on Wednesday 12 December 2012


So director Tom Hooper, the Academy Award-winning filmmaker of “The King’s Speech,” decided to work on the big screen version of “Les Miserables” and made a very important call – his cast will not lip synch to the music, they will sing it live, and with feeling and passion depending on their characters. The sung-through technique is brilliant and gives the film much more weight! So, I was happy as a clam to interview Mr. Hooper, one-on-one. In this interview, we talked about:

*** He loves the “Les Miserables” shirt I ironed-on LOL
*** Was it a daunting task to create a big-screen version of the musical?
*** Why was it his dream to make “Les Miserables?”
*** His sung-through technique
*** His tight close-ups technique
*** I actually enjoyed the story better now that watching the play numerous times
