Noah (2014) – Animation Work Details

The art work of a film is considered to be the most complicated thing while you are dealing with a Biblical story, says Darren Aronofsky, who wrote it in the form of a novel first of all. This novel was an incredible success and perhaps this was the reason behind, in changing it into a film so that the religious concept of the film could be made clearer. Russell Crowe, who is playing the lead role has already got a noble personality which suits his character to such an extent that you cannot replace him, in this character, with any other Hollywood actor. 

Eponymous prophet is a very difficult role to play and one cannot reach its demands without the expertise of a long time in the film industry. The prophet comes to know about an apocalyptic flood, off course through his spiritual resources, which is impending. 



As it is a message from God so many of the public around does not believe him but he trusts his vision and belief in God completely and thus he decides to build a ship of enormous size in order to escape from the flood.

An interesting fact about the film is that the budget for the tent pole, in the film, when increased from 125 million dollars, Aronofsky got really concerned about his work. It is because he was going to deal with the highest budget film of his life till now. His previous achievement, The Fountain, was an exception in his film career and that too cost 35 million dollars.

The prophecy says that the storm will destroy everything so the main character is forced to build a ship but he needs it to be enormously large because he wants to save as many living creatures as he can. Aronofsky has put a great effort to the material in order to give it a stamp of his own animated creativity. After all it was a great task for him to portray his character as an environmentalist, as he was thinking to save the world.

A lot was depending on the creativity of the director because he intended to show the animals out of which none exists today and he himself says that this part of the film gave a spur to his keen interest in the film making. The giants in the film are simply extraordinary and who can forget those angels with six arms? The writer states about them that for giving digital shape to his vision he took the 

services of ILM to get the best possible designs for his CGI animals. Yet this was the most apprehended shots in the career of ILM till now. The most complex thing about Noah’s story was that it had been worked out by many others as well because the Jewish audience is very interested in it. And when you are working at such a project then the audience is only concerned about your creativity because they know they story already. But Aronofsky’s creativity is fabulous enough to give an altogether new shape to an old story.
