Christopher Nolan and Wally Pfister – The Journey Continues

BY BOB FISHER

The collaborations between Christopher Nolan and Wally Pfister, ASC read like the script for a feel good Hollywood movie where seemingly impossible dreams come true. Pfister was born in Chicago. He began his career shooting television news in Washington, D.C. Nolan was born in London, where he launched his career with Following, a black and white 16 mm film that he wrote, directed and shot. Following was featured at the Slamdance Festival in 1998. While he was at the festival, Nolan saw The Hi-Line at Sundance. The film was shot by Pfister, who was also in the dawn of his career. After he completed writing a script about a year later, Nolan tracked Pfister down and sent him a copy. They produced “Memento” on a $300,000 budget. It earned rave reviews on the festival circuit, $24 million at the box-office, and respective Oscar and Independent Spirit Award nominations for Nolan for scriptwriting and directing in 2001.

Nolan and Pfister took it to the next level with Insomnia in 2002. They continued on their journey with “Batman Begins” in 2004, “The Prestige” in 2006 and “The Dark Knight” in 2008. Their first three studio films earned rave reviews, long, profitable runs on cinema screens and Oscar nominations for Pfister. What do you do for an encore? Here’s a hint: Write “don’t miss Inception” on the July page of your 2010 calendar. Their sixth co-venture will take you on a breathtaking journey with a criminal mastermind who figures out how to steal precious secrets by invading people’s dreams. Stay tuned for the next chapter of this story: Why and how Nolan and Pfister explored a new frontier in moviemaking while producing “Inception.”
