Step Onboard 'Firefly' with TechTV at 8:30 p.m. and 11:30 p.m. and tomorrow at 9:30 a.m. Eastern. Interviewed are Firefly visual effects supervisor and CG supervisor Loni Peristere and Emil Edwin Smith of Zoic Studios. There is also some JW airtime.
It's about half way through TechLive if you don't to watch the whole thing.
"We recycle images by blending them," Smith says. "We designed it in a way we could reuse models, lighting, etc."
"Our budget is tight," Peristere adds. "Standard budgets run between $75,000 and $200,000 per episode, so our budgets range from zero to $300,000, depending on how many images we have to create. But still, in the features world, that would be would be $100 million."
