The inside of Warner Bros studios was “a little more somber” following a shooting rampage during a midnight showing of “The Dark Knight Rises” early Friday morning in Aurora, Colo., according to an employee who was walking out of the Burbank-based company's “Ranch” gate.
“But I guess that's just because once you know about it, it changes how you see everything,” Jeff Palm, an animation concept designer for the studio, said Friday afternoon.
He said no internal company statement had been issued to the employees about the tragedy. James Holmes, 24 of San Diego, allegedly shot and killed 12 people and injured dozens more.
“Usually when there's something like this that happens, the president and CEO will send out an email just giving some thoughts, but nothing like that yet,” Palm said.
Palm added that he thinks the incident will have an impact on movie-goers.
“It's gonna kinda change the way we see the movie; or at the very least, when you go to the movies, it'll be on people's minds,” he said.
