Tim Burton sits down for a talk with Sato Takeru

While doing PR for his new movie "Dark Shadow", director Tim Burton sat down with the actor Sato Takeru for a crosstalk.


(Takeru is of course speaking in Japanese while Tim Burton answers in English (with Japanese subtitles) which makes it easy to understand even if you can't understand Japanese. I've translated what Takeru says below the clip)




Takeru: I'm really honoured to meet you.
(Burton)
Takeru: Thank you so much. To start off, as I was privileged enough to be able to see the movie (before the official release date) and I think it's a wonderful movie.
(Burton)
Takeru: The fact that his dream was able to come true.... I'm also an actor so I understand that feeling very much. When I saw the movie I was a bit jealous.
(Burton)
Takeru: Since it's about vampires I had an image of the character as a dark, cool and serious but the movie portrays him in a comedian way so I felt it became a character that I'm able to love (*feel sympathy with).
(Burton)
Takeru: The traits of the characters, like the make-up and the hairstyles.. where do the inspiration for them come from?
(Burton)
Takeru: Are you using his real hair for this?
(Burton)
Takeru: How long did it take to finish everything, like putting on all the make-up and doing the hair?
(Burton)
Takeru: He's always putting on these amazing costumes, like in this movie and in Charlie (and the chocolate factory). It's really amazing.
Takeru: In Japan there's hardly any movie being made where you put all this work into the costume and make-up so when I see your movies I can't help but feel a bit jealous as an actor myself.
(Burton)
Takeru: I'm waiting with anticipation for when that will happen.
(Burton)
Takeru: Thank you. I have so many things I want to ask you but we don't have that much time so I'll stick to (asking questions about) this movie. How long did it take to shoot it?
(Burton)
Takeru: So it didn't take more than that...
(Burton)
Takeru: The final scene, the battle scene... was really impressive and I sat on the edge of my seat watching it, but the battle scene inside the mansion, how long did it take?
(Burton)
Takeru: Did you create a set for the movie and then shoot there or...?
(Burton)
Takeru: What was it you wanted to tell the audience with this movie?
(Burton)
Takeru: When I went to London a while ago I found this in a bookshop..... I was looking at other books and found this by an accident. When I looked through it the pictures were really pretty and without thinking I bought it.
(Burton)
Takeru: How do you come up with so detailed characters like the ones in this book? That is something I really wanted to ask...
(Burton)
Takeru: I really love these pictures.. I almost forgot! I have a present for you as a thanks for you coming all the way to Japan... This is the character I'm playing in....
(Burton and translater)
Takeru: Maybe it's fate...
(Burton)
Takeru: So if you don't mind accepting it...
(Burton)
Takeru: Thank you for taking the time to meet me.
(Burton)
