Brad Pitt Considering Death Penalty for BP

/ August 23, 2010

Actor Brad Pitt says that he would consider the death penalty in dealing with the BP executives responsible for the massive gulf oil spill.

In Spike Lee’s new documentary, If God Is Willing and Da Creek Don’t Rise, Brad sat down for an on-camera interview with the famed film director. When asked about how to deal with BP and their response to the oil spill, Brad had some harsh words:

I was never for the death penalty before. I am willing to look at it again.

Spike’s documentary looks at Louisiana five years after Hurricane Katrina. The BP oil spill occurred while Spike was already filming in Louisiana and the events following the spill are featured heavily in the new film. Watch the trailer below.

Following Katrina, Brad launched Make It Right, a charity focused on creating 150 affordable and sustainable homes in the Lower Ninth Ward for those displaced by the 2005 hurricane. Brad and his partner Angelina Jolie have been heavily involved with New Orleans following Hurricane Katrina. In addition to Brad’s charity, the two bought a home in New Orleans.

n order to make the production deadlines for fall advertising, we had to shoot the print portion in April and used photographer Zach Gold to capture this component. When we decided to cast the muse portion of the campaign we decided to cast Lindsay Lohan. We made her a video pitch in April, she said yes to becoming the campaign muse, for print and for the digital components, and we shot her for the digital component in NYC in May. Lindsay saw the campaign images we had already shot on a model and approved those to become the illustrations of herself based on the photographed images. The process of creating the illustrations was done by illustrator Mike Evans, based in San Francisco, who converted the images to illustrations by hand and with a digital illustrator program. This was not a touch of a button, Photoshop process. Each illustration was a laborious task. In the tradition of the illustrators of the period of pulp action films, it’s best practice to shoot form, and then illustrate from that. This is how bond posters were made as well as the iconic Star Wars posters. Each campaign shot is a composite of many shoots, including some of illustration
