Director Faces Big Screen With Fear and Excitement Times Herald, Carroll, la. Monday, May 3, 1976 FUNNY BUSINESS By Roger Bollen PHILADELPHIA (AP)—"As a painter, I'm sometimes terrified by an empty canvas," says Academy Award winning cinematographer Francis Thompson. "So imagine how I felt when I learned I would be doing a feature length film for a screen that is seven stories tall and covers 6.300 square feet. "Of course it was a little terrifying, but at the same time the -possibilities were very exciting. With IMAX (the cinema process for huge screens), I as a director know I can pull the audience into the film to a degree no other technique can approach. The people who go to Philadelphia and see the movie will go away with' the feeling that they actually took part in 200 years of American history." Thompson was named by, Philadelphia 76 Inc., which is directing the Bicentennial efforts in the cradle of the American Revolution, to produce "American Years." With striking vignettes, the movie effectively leaps Women's Club Honors 75th Anniversary Times Herald News Service MANNING — Manning Women's Club met April 19 at the home of Joan Hornberger for their spring dinner which celebrated their 75th anniversary. President Lorraine Kruse called the meeting to order and led in the flag pledge. Gladys Schmidt gave the devotions. 'Eighteen members answered roll call. The minutes of the previous meeting were read and approved. President Lorraine Kruse installed the 1976-77 officers. through the key points of American history from colonial times to the present. After its April 30 opening, "American Years" remains a permanent attraction in the IMAX theater, which has the largest indoor screen in the world. The theater is part of a 25.000-square-foot Living History Center built by Philadelphia across from Independence Mall. Thompson won his Oscar for "To Be Alive," a film that splashed the joys of living across, three screens in the Johnson Wax Pavilion at the 1964-65 New York World's Fair. . As an abstract painter, Thompson likes his art big. But as a director he found the gargantuan screen presented new problems and he says he had to'abandon'many accepted film techniques. Among the first to go were close-ups and especially such tricks as zooming in on a small portion of an actor's face for dramatic emphasis. "If the camera zooms in on an eye. you wind up with a 70-foot image that the viewer simply cannot comprehend," Thompson says in his soft, almost shy voice. Even with long and medium shots, he found it difficult to restrict the detail to the point that viewers would not become so wound up in minutiae that the over-all scene would be lost. Equally, Thompson found, "I had to be very careful not to get too .tricky with the camera.. It would be very satisfying as a director to have a ball with the cinema process. But then you run the danger of. losing the audience and then the audience loses the story line." With the job of covering 200 years of,American history in 48 minutes, Thompson admits he could scarely afford to lose his audience even for seconds. While the impact can be stunning, the process can pose dangerous pitfalls to less-than-careful directors. During one shooting sequence in historic Philadelphia, Thompson was faced with the problem of an anachronistic Sharon Kelderman, president; Sandra Hass, vice-president; Freda Dammann, recording secretary; Donna Morey, treasurer, and Harriet Gross, corresponding secretary. ., President Sharon Kelderman asked~the club for their help in the coming year and thanked Joan Hornberger for her hospitality and the dinner committee for the lovely meal. There will be a meeting in August, of the officers and committees for a "Dandy Yankee Doodley Do," the theater production which Women's Club will be sponsoring and which will be presented Sept. 22 in the school auditorium. Jean Wiese asked for names of those who would be interested in taking more needlepoint or embroidery classes. A review of the 75 years of Women's Club was presented by Dorothy Arp.. ZION LADIES MEET ARCADIA — The Arcadia Zion Lutheran Ladies Eventide Auxiliary hosted the April birthday party at Eventide home in Denison Friday afternoon. Attending :were r .11,'ladies including '•.several' guests. A birthday cake was served and also presented was a musical program of old time songs. seven-story cinderblock building in the middle of a block containing 18th-century buildings important to one sequence. "You looked at that building with its concrete blocks, and you just knew IMAX would pick it up in every detail," Thompson saidrThe solution: Wrap the building in brick red cloth with cutouts for the windows and doors. A stickler for historic accuracy, Thompson would consider it a disaster if, for instance, one of the actresses somehow got in front of the camera with a plastic button on her 18th-century dress, or if just the hint of an automobile was tucked away in the corner of some early American scene. Thompson almost had the Declaration of Independence scene in front of Independence Hall wrapped up when it began to rain. Thompson ordered the scenes reshot because there was no rain in Philadelphia on that day in 1776.
