1. 'Quantum of Solace' – Official Blog Report #16

    By Devin Zydel on 2008-07-08

    The official Quantum of Solace blog has been updated today with another crew member from the 22nd James Bond 007 film: first assistant director Michael Lerman.

    ‘I’m the first assistant director on Quantum of Solace. A lot of people view the first assistant director as kind of the taskmaster on set; the person that’s cracking the whip and pushing the crew.’

    ‘My goal on a day-to-day basis is to achieve everything the director wants in the alotted time. The first thing I do is take the script and break it down: all of the cast, the crew, the stunts, the special effects. And while I’m doing that we’re going to numerous locations just to pick the right one that fits all the requirements that the scene dictates.’

    ‘I’ve done a lot of movies where the finale is the big set piece, but on Quantum of Solace it seems like we have one those set pieces every week–it never stops.’
