Opening ceremony a warm-up act for Games: Danny Boyle
London: Filmmaker Danny Boyle, the mastermind behind the grand opening ceremony of the 2012 London Olympics, says the spectacle was a "warm-up" act for the Games.
The Oscar-winning film director was responsible for the incredible transformation of the stadium in Stratford Friday night.
"Tonight`s a warm-up act for the Games. That`s one of the things you have to keep remembering. You big it up for different reasons, and you hear it bigged up or slammed or whatever it is and you`ve got to keep remembering we`re the warm-up act," contactmusic.com quoted Boyle as saying.
The ceremony lasted nearly four hours and covered many aspects of the life, history and culture of the British Isles.
