Interesting piece, Tux, thanks for posting.

As for the CD links, it's good to know there are parallel dimensions at Bond and Beyond.

It'll be interesing to see what happens with movie-making in the future.

The positive is that anyone can make a movie. The negative is that anyone can a movie.

About 40 years after I first read MAKING OF KUBRICK'S 2001, I finally at last got to interview Trumbull a couple weeks ago. It was worth the wait. He has got some really novel and out there ideas that are well-worked out, and I just hope he finally gets a full shot at bringing these approaches to fruition.

I've said a few times that sometimes I think of him as falling somewhere between Orson Welles and Preston Tucker in some ways, but at least he has made some decent bread off all these patents and his net profits on CE3K.

One thing that really thrilled me (but hasn't been well received elsewhere) is that he is still hugely behind using miniatures instead of CG, and his virtual production system only uses CG for the real-time comp on set. Then he uses the data from the CG background to produce the miniatures that when photographed will replace it, Even Trumbull doesn't have any kind of rational explanation for the abandonment of what works great in favor of stuff that CAN work, but often doesn't. All these years and I still haven't gotten anybody to explain why renting a motion control stage to shoot models is SOOOOOOO expensive that nobody can afford to do it. Doesn't seem likely.

And no, I didn't talk much about TMP with him. As much as I wanted to, I felt I would seriously sidetrack and I only had a little over an hour to cover a career and all the new stuff. He did say he had to be hospitalized when TREK was finally over.

Great article. Interesting developments for those on the technical side of filmmaking. Doubt audiences would give a rat's ass, though. Just give them the explosions.
