AI - behind the scenes..
"Damaged mecha outcasts rummage through the pile, looking for replacement parts. The studio designed twelve key mecha characters for the scene — including a security guard mecha that was built from a lifecast of Stan Winston — each of which was realized as either a mechanical puppet or an appliance makeup worn by a performer."
Terminator Salvation - keeping it real..
"For the fourth installment in the Terminator franchise, director McG was determined to strike the same balance between Practical FX and Visual Effects (CGI) that had been so effective in bringing to life the pantheon of iconic cyborg assassins from the first three films."
It takes an immense effort of imagination for citizens to see beyond these initial difficulties of opening a new frontier. No one would pretend to foresee all the economic, political, social, and cultural changes that will follow in the wake of the first exploratory shots into space, any more than the people in the days of Columbus could foresee the twentieth-century world. But such an effort at prophetic imagination is what is required of us as citizens, so that we will not, like Leif Ericson, leave the making of the future to others.
