Default Quinto: Story is about Spock... filming in Iceland

http://trekweb.com/articles/2009/01/...of-Spock.shtml

"I was with the project since the beginning and I presented myself to audition, while having really in my mind how to approach the role. The success of "Heroes" played certainly in my favour. We filmed for six months last year in the studios of Paramount and in Iceland. It was for me an unforgettable experiment to play "Spock" when he was young, as the story is focused entirely on him."

I thought they decided not to go to Iceland?!
And we read somewhere else that "the audience is Kirk"...

All the sources I've seen said Iceland and British Columbia were scouted but never used and that the whole film was filmed in California. Maybe just a miscommunication?

I checked the original french interview... I didn't use french for some years, but I think the translation was correct.

Quinto is easily the best thing about this film. he's a superb actor and an astounding match for leonard nimoy. To imagine the amount of time they spent with each other on this collaboration....frankly, I think I might be a little jealous....

So logical.
So pointy.

I think it's quite possible for the movie to be "about Spock" while still maintaining the perspective that the audience is looking at it from Kirk's perspective.

Never thought of that? That is a excellent point!

That would also seem to be consistent with the early episodes of TREK, certainly THE MENAGERIE where Spock was the key to the plot, but Kirk's involvement in the investigation/trial was the in-door for the audience into the story.

In very general terms, I think that equation holds true throughout TREK: Spock handles the logic and science, and Kirk is the dramatic, emotional conduit -- as humans, we identify with Kirk better since he helps humanize sci-fi abstracts of these adventures, but the adventures require both sides to 'be TREK'.
