Life of Pi

Victo Ngai

This piece is in the current New Yorker movie review on Ang Lee’s new film ”Life of Pi”  which just came out last weekend. I haven’t gotten a chance to watch it yet but the visuals in the trailer are quite extraordinary!!

I was really excited when I learnt Ang Lee would be translating Yann Marlet’s beautiful and spiritual novel into a movie. I am a big fan of both the book and Ang Lee’s work and think the poetic sensibility of the director is just perfect for the story.

So…you can imagaine how thrilled I was when AD Chris Curry gave me this assignment!!! 

Challanges of this piece?

1- it’s very hard to find up-skirt tiger reference photos. This one is the closest I could get.

2- it’s tricky trying to make the tiger look believable after omitting his “ding-dong” between the legs. 

3- Tomer Hanuka did a fabulous piece on “Life of Pi” a while back and that’s quite some pressure…
