Steven Soderbergh som var regissör för 2nd unit under inspelningen av "The Hunger Games" några dagar har pratat med MovieFone om vad han gjorde där och varför.

Why was Steven Soderbergh on the set of "The Hunger Games"? Steven Soderbergh tells us the whole story

I show up in North Carolina, a crewmember Tweets, "Steven Soderbergh's here". And immediately the f*cking firestorm starts. "Why is he here? What's going on? Is the movie in trouble? Is he directing footage from the second one?" All of this crazy-ass speculation. People just spinning off.

The story is really simple. Back in April, [director] Gary [Ross] - who is a close friend of mine I've exchanged creative favors with non-stop over the last 15 years - when he got the boards for the shoot in April called me and said, "Hey, first week of August, I got these two days of second unit. Is there any way you can come down and help me out? Because I'd rather have you do it than hire somebody who I don't know." I said, "Actually, that works out." We'll just be finishing "Contagion" and prepping "Magic Mike" and, yeah, it could be fun.

Cut to two months later, and I show up to do this thing. Of course the whole design of it and what's fun about it, for me, is my job is to come in and duplicate exactly what Gary and Tom Stern, the [cinematographer], are doing. To mimic as closely as I can to their aesthetic. And that's what I attempted to do. But if I've done my job properly, I hope I did, by design, you won't be able to tell what I did. Because it's supposed to cut seamlessly into what they're doing. That's the whole point. That's why he asked me to come down, because he knew that I would be rigorous about matching what they were doing.
