An Oral History of Lilo & Stitch

quote [ It almost makes me freak out now, just thinking about how many near misses this thing probably had. It was like bowling a strike. You?re like, ?It?s going to make it, it?s going to make it,? and you hit that, and that may never happen again. ]

Loong read. Very interesting, a bit sad at the end, as they closed down the studio. The art director quit shortly afterwards and is a freelance artist since.

Ray Stevenson dead at 58

quote [ Ray Stevenson, who played the villainous British governor in ?RRR,? an Asgardian warrior in the ?Thor? films, and a member of the 13th Legion in HBO?s ?Rome,? has died. He was 58. ]

This hit me kinda hard. Stevenson's performance in HBO's "Rome" is one of my favorite screen characters ever. I've modeled a lot of FRPG and MMORPG fighters after Titus Pullo.

Val?, brother. XIII in aeternum.

Gene Hackman is listening

quote [ the heart of ?The Conversation?s? appeal, then and now, is the way it combines an exceptional character study, a thriller plot and an ability to superbly convey the unease of a society where blanket surveillance is getting to be the norm. ]

Thought of this film today and look-a: it's viewable online.

10 Clever Camera Tricks in "Aliens"

quote [ The hypersleep capsules from which the team emerge on reaching the planet were expensive to build. Production designer Peter Lamont?s solution was to make just half of them, and place a mirror at the end of the set to double them up. ]

James Cameron doing cheesy budget cuts without anyone noticing.
