During a keynote at Tribeca Games Festival, Film Director Neil Burger, well known for Divergent and Limitless, had words of high praise to share about the camera work of the Uncharted series.

Burger mentioned that when he was involved with the direction and writing of an Uncharted movie (before leaving the project in 2012), looking at the way the camera moves in the games was “incredibly inspiring.”

According to Burger, trying to incorporate in the movie project the way the camera follows the character in third person was “fascinating,” and it’s something that you see more and more in action movies.

As a bonus, Burger also mentioned that he is interested in making games himself, even if he did not mention what kind of project he’d like to take part in, and in what role.
