Attack Of The Podcast - Episode Eight - Digital Filmmaking w/ J.D. Amato

Joining Griffin and David this week is special guest J.D. Amato (The Chris Gethard Show) to discuss the behind-the-scenes making of this film, including, a featurette entitled: "Star Wars State Of The Art: The Pre-Visualization Of Episode II" (found in the initial DVD release of Attack of the Clones.) Together, they examine the process of pre-visualization, why the CGI technology of its time compared even with today's still makes this film ambitious, the uncanny valley and reasons why most of the special effects didn't enhance or contribute to the overall story. Though, George tried his best, why did Lucas put himself into a situation where no one could help him or this movie? Why did actors perform to no one in a blue room? Was there ever even a bigger picture or cohesive plan? Find out these answers and more!
