A short history of CG characters in movies

Added on by Alex Koehne.

 

There is nothing new in the documentary that I couldn't have told off the top of my head - but it is fun seeing clips from both the movies and the behind the scenes, making ofs all cut together, back to back. Ben Burtt made a documentary for IMAX theaters called Special Effects: Anything Can Happen about 15 years ago. I'd love to see a follow up to that. Ultra high resolution clips of these advances would be very cool to see - especially when shown how they work with practical effects, models and on set trickery.
