Gary Ross: 'Hunger Games viewers should feel part of the movie'

Gary Ross directs 'The Hunger Games'
Gary Ross has said that he wants The Hunger Games to feel real.

The director revealed that he wants viewers to believe that they are actually a part of the titular Games when watching the film.

"I want you to lean forward into the frame," Ross told Coming Soon. "I don't want to push you back. I don't want you to passively receive the movie. I want you to engage in the movie.

"My job is to pull you in and make this feel completely real all the time and never break the frame. I don't want you to feel like you're in a movie. I want you to feel like you're in the Games."

Ross also said that viewers will see lots of CGI that they won't necessarily recognise as computer-generated imagery.

"When you're in the Seam, where she lives, a lot of the mines and other backgrounds are created in a computer," he revealed. "In the chariot sequence, literally all we had was a road.

"But my feeling about CG is that it's like music. You shouldn't notice it. It should support the film. So we worked very, very hard in creating CG that you don't notice."

The Hunger Games opens in cinemas on March 23.
