TGB Episode 48: Computer Generated (Guest: TRS' Jeff Cannata)

February 9, 2011

The Golden Briefcase

On this week's episode of The Golden Briefcase, Tim & Jeremy are joined by guest Jeff Cannata of the world famous Totally Rad Show to go over their Picks of the Week, the newest in DVD/Blu-Ray releases, the Super Bowl teasers for Captain America, J.J. Abrams' Super 8 and Transformers 3, debate Jeremy's dislike of Paranormal Activity 2 and much more! The episode's main topic is CGI characters in films (in honor of Gnomeo & Juliet coming out this weekend). The guys go over both good and bad examples and talk about the necessity of such characters and the issues of using them as a crutch in the final film product. Listen in!

The Golden Briefcase is also broadcast LIVE on Tuesday nights starting at 7:30PM (PST). You can listen in via our Ustream page or by visiting our own live page right here on FS. The podcast is just as fun to listen to live while it's being recorded, with plenty of special guests, so I suggest you tune in the next time it records!

Got to give it up to the guys at Industrial Light and Magic. Hands down the BEST in the business. Also they're main reason I am excited to see "Rango" this year as it will be their first fully CG feature film.
