|Wilson Tang on set of A.I. Artificial Intelligence (2001)|
"For a particular sequence in the film when we flash back to Bruce Banner's childhood memories, Ang wanted some concept art to see what we can do with the stuffed animals - to make them symbols for all the repressed anger that the young Bruce experienced in his childhood home. In the end, due to time and budget, the shot was cut and in its place was a pretty simple motion-blurred shot of young Bruce playing violently with the dolls." - Tang
