Director Baz Luhrmann has decided to share his process in adapting the F. Scott Fitzgerald novel The Great Gatsby by compiling series of notes on the production through an online interactive journal called The Gatsby Journal. With plans to update on a weekly basis, the first bits of information provided include exploring the film’s fashion, a look at Gatsby’s castle and some excerpts from interviews on subjects ranging from his use of 3D to his use of music in the film. Read the note regarding the journal from Baz Luhrmann and other details after the break.

“So many people have asked about the process that we followed to arrive at the decisions we did in the making of this version of The Great Gatsby. So I thought that we should start to publish online in different sections a Journal of our process. We call it the Gatsby Journal. First up is just a few layers, but each week we will be going deeper and deeper into the research and the creative and production processes. I hope it will enrich the experience of the film.” – Baz Luhrmann
