I'm the visual effects supervisor for Atlantis and wanted to invite you to post me comments on the show's effects. I'm looking for constructive comments that help me understand how people who are watching the show for the first time see what we've created. Normally, by the time a show has gone through post production, I've watched it about 300 times... so the shots start to melt together and don't have the same impact they would when you see a finished shot for the first time...
I'm looking for insightful observations only please, both good and bad! The aim is to better understand the way we see things, verses the way we create things in our heads. The more we understand the process, the more we can build better worlds for you all.
I'm running a website called, vfxsoup which details the work of visual effects supervisors, and interviews people from the visual effects industry (including James Tichenor who did the effects for Stargate and now works on Kingdom Hospital)... I've created forums there to discuss these subjects and invite you all to direct the comments there, as it is the best way for me to see you ideas and thoughts...
We're already at episode 8, and I can't wait to shoot this latest episode, the opening shot will blow you away... It's simply the best thing I've ever personally done and the team I work with is open to the most wacky of my creative ideas... so in return, I'm open to your comments and suggestions!
Fire away, but be kind, a great many people on this show work very hard making these pictures for you!
