Zack Snyder's take on Dune?

at 19:38 - 23rd, August 2023
Zack Snyder released a trailer for his upcoming scifi space opera called Rebel Moon and all I can think is Dune.

Still looks pretty decent though.

On another note, does anyone film on location anymore or is everything CG now?

looks interesting, I'll probably watch it.. very VFX heavy though, Netflix is pretty cheap I hear, so they do a lot of VFX stuff which looks much better than it did 20 years ago, but you can still tell it's fake

I still prefer the old school models like from the original star wars or star trek - sure, you can see the clipping from around the ship and it's obviously fake, but the detail is so much better than some CG space ship, even in 2023

This is from the most recent film that the place I worked at in Japan, it's kind of neat to see all the different layers CG uses, kind of like photoshop & all the layering tools but with moving images instead.. still does not look real though (as real as a walking shark can be).

Also, was that Space Nazis in the Rebel Moon trailer?

I find that it's usually the lighting that gives it away most times. Watching the Corridor Crew really highlights a lot of problems with Hollywood CG, especially with gun flashes.

I was first introduced to them with their "XXX reacts" series which was usually a stunt man reacting to action sequencing and breaking down what or how they did things. REALLY interesting shit, and also introduced me to some absolutely fantastic action movies.

But basically, the reason why Jurassic Park still holds up to today's CG and is sometimes better than the new Jurassic Park movies is primarily because most of the dino shots have 1 source of light and they they used actual light sources in their shots that were easy to replicate in CG.

Corridor Crew keeps coming back to Jurassic Park as a prime example of how to do things correctly.

good point about the lighting, it's one of the most difficult pieces to get right - i think UE5 will help change things.. the train station is almost unbelievable

The train station looks a bit off to me. something about how the camera is moving or the angles, I can't quite place it.

UE5 though, holy shit that was impressive.
