ComingSoon visits Industrial Light & Magic
Tuesday, May 29, 2007 - reddit
Comingsoon.net has a nice feature up that continues the recent theme of ILM and Pirates 3 news around here, where they were actually invited to visit Skywalker Ranch and have a chat with two key players working on the massive FX project.
[Supervisor John Knoll] went on to elaborate on the complexity of the visual effects process. "So often when you're doing visual effects, it's a very complex process, it's expensive and because of that it's often very carefully planned, the angles are all very carefully storyboarded and thought out and then you might try and shoot just those pieces so you're as efficient as you can and there's frequently a stylistic change when you get to those scene you just feel that there's something more deliberate and planned about it and the shooting methodology just gave us this nice just seamless thing where it fit into the rest of the movie."
I nominate Knoll for speaking - and comingsoon for dictating - the longest runon sentence in the history of the Internets. The piece is quite long and a wonderful read, so what are you waiting for? Go read it!
