Interview with Emile Edwin Smith, Zoic Studios' Visual Effects Supervisor for Firefly/Serenity. NewTek interviews Smith of Zoic Studios, who worked closely with Loni Peristere, the VFX supervisor on the show and film.

Okay, so it ainít Ďzackly news -- itís a good, though brief, article about Firefly/Serenity special effects & the tools that produced them. (Though this article is a bit after its sell-by-date, Iíve searched the site and canít find it posted elsewhere. Itís good info with good photos.)

For the techno-geek in all of us.

"The Serenity" ???
Mmm, like 'The QE2' or 'The Titanic' (or 'The Moon' for that matter).

Nice article, always like the juicy tech details.

(may be worth pointing out - just in case it's not clear from the stonking great banner ad - that Newtek, who host and presumably carried out the interview, make and sell Lightwave 3D - which is why you get questions like "So Emile, why is Lightwave the best package ever ?' and 'Emile, Lightwave: Saviour of the Free World - Discuss' ;)

LOL! Yeah, I caught that too. But I have to admit, Lightwave kicks ass.
By the way, NewTek also made one of the earlier FX tools: the Toaster, which I worked with way way Back in The Day.
: )
AmazonGirl, I heartily agree with you on the Toaster; I find mine very quick and efficient. One burning question that has always troubled me though: where does the bread go?

;-)

(I honestly have never heard of the FX tool you're referring to but just couldn't pass this one up)
Video Toaster Trivia: Before it was finally introduced there was a rumor going around that it was going to be a laser peripheral designed to toast restaurant logos onto bread. (Hey, seemed plausible at the time.)
