Wes Anderson on the set of The Life Aquatic With Steve Zissou
Let me tell you about my boat. The Belafonte was a long-range sub hunter during the second world war, which we bought from the U.S. navy for $ 900,000. The sauna was designed by an engineer from the Chinese space program and we need a Swedish masseuse on staff. Here’s where we do all our science projects and experiments and so on. This is the kitchen which contains probably some of the most technologically advanced equipment on the ship. Elanor put together a topnotch research library for us with a complete first-edition set of the life aquatic companion series. We process our own rushes and keep a cutting room on board so we can do an assembly while we’re shooting. This s the observation bubble, which I thought up in a dream, actually. Two albino scouts swim with the ship. They’re supposedly very intelligent, although I’ve never seen evidence of it. Here’s the engine room. The bearing casings aren’t supposed to look like that but we can’t afford to fix ‘em this year. Topside we’ve got the bridge, the mini sub, an old chopper and all kinds of radar and sonar and underwater movie gadgets.
