Absolutdirector.com deconstructs Japanese sci-fi pic

Spike Lee was on hand Tuesday at Gotham’s Zoom Studios for the launch of Absolutdirector.com, an interactive filmmaking game that new-media company Submarine created for the vodka label. Web site features more than 35 discrete clips from a 1960s Japanese sci-fi pic, from which users construct their own storyline and dialogue. “It gives people a simple idea of how films are made and how to structure a narrative,” said Lee, who with helmer Mary Herrin created the first two short films for the site. “It’s kind of like if you were in a kindergarten class and everyone was given the same blocks,” added Lee.
