Oscar campaigning used to be so easy. Take out a few trade adds, approach a number of key voters, do a few rounds of dinners and drinks, done. Now there are far more outlets to get out info about a movie. The internet allows distributors to make all manner of materials available to promote their films for award consideration: scripts, scores, interviews, and on a limited basis even the entire film, via digital screener.
Wes Anderson‘s Moonrise Kingdom isn’t available online for everyone to watch for free, but there’s something pretty good as a consolation prize. The interactive script walks readers through the film through a copy of the script text augmented with stills, blueprints, design items, and behind the scenes photos. It’s a neat way to view the film, especially for those who haven’t exhaustively devoured all the “making of” materials posted over the last year.
The script is here. Unfortunately, there doesn’t seem to be an easy way to download one complete package of all pages, to view on a tablet. HEre are some sample images:
Many more production materials, most of which we’ve already run, are here.
