Comicbookgirl19 has to be my favorite channel on youtube at the moment. She and her trusty side-kick, 'Robot', review the latest shows, movies and comic books. Recently she interviewed one of the greatest practical special effects artists of our time, Alec Gillis. They discuss why practical effects seem to be losing traction in the film industry and how it will affect future filmmaking.
Practical effects have always interested me as a child and always had me wondering, 'How on earth did they pull that off?' I think what Alec explains has a lot of merit and we need to stop and not blindly accept that digital effects are the way of the future and that is the end all be all, but that there should be a happy medium.
