Flying with Substance  Reply with quote  

Chris, couldn't agree more with everything you've said..thanks for the validation.

If the movie guys & gals would like to show brilliant flying, then makeing a very good "The HItch-hiker's Guide to the Galazy" would provide the effect & character engagement we could all relate to.
Do you remember how to fly?
As you are falling, ie tripping, you get distracted & forget that you're falling
...then you begin to fly.
If you suddenly say to yourself,
"Ohmygod, I'm flying"
...that incredulous disbelief will cause you to crash to te ground.

There's a lot of philosphical-life-lesson-type depth there, if you think about it.
Or not.

Regarding flying on film, though, have you seen the new Peter Pan movie?
Gotta say, I really liked it.
Tells the story, the characters could act and engage me
The flying is simply a tool to the story...done well.
As opposed to the story being a lame accessory to a grand display of special effects.
There's more than lovely effects here.
There's a magical quality that shows you can not only tell a story with computer graphics, but you can re-tell an old story with penache.
Give it a watch...

I'm sorry but when I saw the title to this post I was going flying with what substance? I've worked to many drug dogs... Rolling Eyes
