HHGTTG light on CGI effects

by on Feb.25, 2005, under Movies

SCI FI Wire is running an article from an interview with Robbie Stamp, the producer of the upcoming Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy. In it he mentions how they tried not to do everything with CGI, as is the trend with most features these days, but rather use “practical” effects. Personally I think it wouldn’t fit the theme if everything was pefectly rendered CGI.

    very much agreed!

    cgi when done well is nice. however it is very rarely done well. people see it so much now that they aren’t fooled by bad cgi. iow, it’s easier to do bad than good with cgi.
