Director Sebastian Cordero, actor Karolina Wydra and composer Bear McCreary visited with Jonah Weiland aboard CBR TV’s floating tiki lounge at Comic-Con International in San Diego to discuss their film Europa Report, which follows an international crew of astronauts as they seek alien life on Jupiter’s fourth largest moon. Cordero discussed the challenges of achieving a grounded tone and look for the film, especially with a smaller budget. Wydra talked about adapting her process to cramped conditions with multiple cameras. McCreary discussed uniting somewhat disparate elements with music and trying to marry his work with the movie’s faux-documentary style. They close the discussion by looking at how they tried to put a different and unique spin on the found footage style of film.
