The Bioscopist Podcast #19 – Star Trek, Mud & Special Effects Techniques

movies_star-trek-into-darknessAll of us here at the Bioscopist finally managed to go see a film together and that film was Mud. We totally enjoyed the hell out of it as two of our favourite actors Matthew McConaughey and, future Man of Steel villain, Michael Shannon brought their A-games to this. The other film we managed to see, albeit not together, was, Star Trek (colon) Into Darkness. We go into a full review, but left the spoilers for right at the end of the podcast, so don’t worry about us ruining the ending for you. After the two reviews we talked about the use of Special Effects from the very early days of film to latest digital SFX used in films like David Fincher’s Zodiac. Hope you enjoy…also want to mention that we’ll be switching to a weekly podcast, with hopefully a bit more structure to it and release the episode at a regular day in the week.

Check out the Jason and the Argonauts clip of the skeleton fight done in stop motion and rear projection, as mentioned in the Special Effects section of the podcast.
