Alain Fleury on Transformers: Rise of the Beasts & More
Screen Rant: You have some great posters in the background.
Alain Fleury, yeah, this is pretty close to my world.
You are a big fan and also get to work on these various projects.
Alain Fleury: Exactly. I was initially a fan and only later realized that, “Hey. How do I get in to work on these things?”
You may have always wanted to edit, but you might also be interested in another aspect of filmmaking.
Alain Fleury, I went to Film School to learn all about film. When I was at Full Sail University I wanted to be a director. I directed several shorts and music videos. “What would make me a better director is if I really know what I needed in the edit.” I started to dig in and went into editing in order to become a more effective director. I fell in love editing.
As a child, I remember hearing stories of people running around with their cameras. Was that what you did as a child?
Alain Fleury, that was me. My aunt used to have old VHS cameras and other stuff. I would grab them and start making movies and home videos. As the oldest sibling, I made my younger siblings my actors. They were basically forced to do it. I would perform a play in front of my grandparents, the whole thing.
My family roots are Haitian. I spent a part of my childhood living in Haiti and attending school there because my family wanted to teach me the culture as well as French and Creole. There were not many movie theaters in Haiti. Because I was born in New York, I divided my time between Haiti. Every time I went to New York I spent the entire summer watching all these blockbuster movies. I became obsessed with blockbuster movies, from Jurassic Park and the Ninja Turtles to The Matrix.
I would return to Haiti. In Haiti, many people don’t travel, or have the money to see a movie. We would sit around a campfire at my grandmother’s beach home, and I’d explain these films in great detail. I would begin at the beginning. I would say, “So the title logo comes in,” Then I would tell them the story as if it were a movie. So I feel that I have always been a great storyteller. I have always wanted to tell tales.
When I looked at the credits, I found Black Panther: Wakanda forever You were part of an enormous editing team. How does your work fit into something so massive?
Alain Fleury says that Black Panther is not a project for one person. It takes many people to make this happen. Mike Shawver, and Jen Lame were the two editors who led our team when I joined. Jen Lame left to join Oppenheimer (which I am excited about), and Kelley Dixon was added as the other editor.
We were assistant editors. There were at least 6 assistant editors. I was the second assistant editor. We had two assistant editors. I went to Atlanta to shoot at Tyler Perry’s Studio. I handled all the dailies. I was responsible for bringing all the dailies from the set into the AVID and preparing them for the editor.
When I arrived, it was 6 a.m. on the East Coast. The editors were on Disney’s lot. When they got in at 9 am, I had all the footage prepared for them so that they could just jump into it and begin cutting. I checked it all out; I ensured that we had everything we needed, and that nothing was missed on set. I have watched each and every performance in that film. If I found something wrong, I would fix it myself before the editors even arrived. I would also highlight all of the positive takes for them.
In Atlanta, that was what I did, but in LA we really got into this. I was involved in some sound design. It was temporary sound, so we did sound design as a preliminary pass. Skywalker Ranch would then do the actual sound design. Every day, I was working with music and sound.
I was also trusted to assist with scenes from Wakanda Forever, which took place in Haiti. I got to help with the ADR session. I got to work with Letitia, the actress who played T’Challa, and Divine the boy who played him.
You helped with accents, line delivery and so on.
Alain Fleury : Almost everything. I would be sitting next to Ryan when the actors asked me questions. “How would you pronounce this?” The following are some examples of how to use “How would you say this?” I would then say the entire line and they would simply repeat it. I made sure that it was authentic.
In an interview I saw you gave in 2021, you were asked to describe your dream project. You said Black Panther. Did you work on it then?
Alain Fleury : I was not even employed by Marvel at the time. It was well before the Marvel era. Doctor Strange and the Multiverse of Madness. I was working in animation at Hasbro. I have always believed in things like. “What is yours will be yours,” It can manifest if it is put out into the universe.
I’ve always wanted to work on Black Panther. I’m an avid Marvel fan and I attend Comic-Con each year. I did this long before I started working on these films. The first Avengers came out, and I slept in the queue to get into Hall H. I never made it into Hall H because the line was too long. By the time the panel took place, the line had been cut off. I was devastated, but then I thought, “You know what? I’m just going to go work for the company.”
Then, there’s Transformers: Rise of the Beasts. Your first union gig is the Transformers You had experience in an animated show and were born in Brooklyn where the majority of this film takes place. You were born in Brooklyn, so you had that background.
Alain Fleury: Yeah, I felt at home again. I worked on the animation series. Robots in DisguiseI know how they work, who’s who and all that. I have a good understanding of how they work, who they are, and so on. Steven Caple Jr. is one of my favorite directors. So when the opportunity for Transformers came up, I was like “I have to work with him. I have to work with this team.” When I saw what they did with the story I was shocked. “Yes, this is my vibe. I like this.” We’re bringing in people of color to lead the show and taking it in a different direction. It’s in New York, it’s in the ‘90s, when I grew up, it’s hip-hop–it’s everything that I love.
The following is a list of the most recent and relevant articles. Beast Wars When was it that the ‘was coming out’? Transformers It was beginning to slow down. They wanted to reinvent themselves because the hype was slowing. They came up Beast Wars It was a spark that ignited the Transformers series. It was the same feeling I had with this movie; the Maximals will be coming and we are bringing the spark back to the Transformers series. This is why I was thrilled to be a member of the film.
What do you want to know? Doctor Strange and the Multiverse of MadnessAlso, I am curious to know how VFX is different than picture editing. This film is full of effects and has some cool sequences. It’s still on my mind. How different was this experience?
Alain Fleury : In VFX editing you are the person between the editor, ILM, and the companies who do the beautiful visual effects. You do a lot of temporary work to demonstrate the vision. I would copy the blue screen or other background elements to illustrate what we were going for.
You also track every single shot in the film, including all VFX shots. If I’m not mistaken, Dr. Strange had close to 3,000 shots of VFX. Strange was quite a bit. People don’t realize that some shots have visual effects. We have set extensions, beauty fixes and other effects that can make it look like a simple conversation. The background of the pizza shop, where Strange talks, is made up a lot by green or blue screens. The shots may look like they are just normal conversations, but there are still visual effects. Strange’s cape, for the most part, is created with CGI and visual effects, so you’ll see visual effects every time.
I’ve been a Sam Raimi fan for a long time, and I love his movies, so I was thrilled to see his interpretation of this character. One of my favorite scenes was the music fight. This scene has evolved so much. It was amazing to watch it grow.
If you’re interested in editing, do you have any advice or thoughts for people who want to get into it? Do you have any advice or thoughts for people who want to get into editing?
Alain Fleury: Consistency is key. I always try to be consistent in my goals and how I want to achieve them. You’ll see that I am an assistant editor on some projects and the lead editor on others. Currently, I am editing a feature-length film. Restaveks takes place in Haiti. It’s in postproduction, but I’m looking forward to it.
Vigilante is another short film I’m currently working on. It’s dark superhero drama and pretty awesome. I can’t believe that this is happening. You’d get something amazing if you combined The Boys with the movie Juice. I say this because I try to be consistent and get things done.
Find new projects to work on. I try not wait for someone else to give the opportunity. Instead, I create my path to success and create my opportunity. You know that there is a strike of writers and that the industry has been put on hold. I’m going to do more than just wait. Wherever I can, I will try to create opportunities for myself. The next project is always something I want to work on, whether it’s editing a film that has already been filmed or finding a new one.
You crossed off Black Panther. What is your dream project?
Alain Fleury: I want to do an amazing horror film. I have no idea what I’m going to do, but I know I want to make something that is innovative, new and fresh. James Wan’s The Conjuring was a new concept. I am also a horror movie fan and I would love to see a creative horror film like that.
