Ok I saw that part 5 of the Don Murphy interview, and the question was raised about the company doing the bot designs and special effects...
So I thought this would be a good....HEALTHY...Discussion..(NO Bay Bashing, Please)about who would have been better at doing the spfx? ILM.. or Weta??
On that note, I think that judging from past movies I have seen, Weta does a good job of tight CGI..and modelling..On the other hand ILM does have the whole Star Wars Experience licked.. and thats pretty amazing..
My only reason I'm pushed more twards WETA doing this movie better is because ILM did Star Wars, and most of those guys who are there have that mindset with designing aspects.. and it shows in these movie bots and their looks..The bug-like faces, the bodies, and mass part shifing during transformations...ummmm tooo much Genosha..and General Grevious...too much droid decas..and ect..
I think Weta may have, given the opportunity, would have given the movie bots a more traditional feel, or could have done the bodies similar, yet would have stuck with a more human face...
Still i like ILM.. But I've become more fond of Weta's style over the years.. I just think they are more open minded in their design processes..they bring in outside experts in the field or genre they are working on for technical and artistic advice.. see Lord of the Rings production DVD Extras..
