Theres a fear inside of me that the origins of visual effects and what they mean/how they work will one day be forgotten. CGI revolutionised visual effects and opened a whole new corridor of doors to open and discover, but near 30 year old techniques still hold up, fascinate and inspire you with the imagery that was created. 75 layers of film that gets layered up photochemically to create a composite puts into perspective just how easy we digital guys have it these days.
I vow to not complain as much about my failed render passes....
