The hoverboard is here? HUVr promises real hoverboards, but it’s way too good to be true
The video kinda appears real, it’s got lots of celebrities and HUVr even has a website, promising a revolution in the future of transportation, but who is behind these shenanigans, these people playing with my dreams?
3D Printing is making practical effects more competitive with CGI effects
Sadly, the art of hand-made models for practical effects in films is dying. Filmmakers cite a lot of reasons. Cost and the time involved in model-building are usually the main reasons to go with CGI instead of a model shot. However, 3D printing is making practical effects cheaper and faster to the point where they can compete with CGI from a cost and time perspective. This is a good thing overall, since the human brain is very good at detecting bad CGI. The days of completely hand-made models may long gone, but there is a good chance that practical effects are still here to stay for a while.
This was yet another HBO/Cinemax staple from the 80s. A group of teenagers decide to hold a party in a mall patrolled by security robots. However, a lightning strike turns the robots into KILLING MACHINES. Look for the cameo from director Paul Bartell in the press conference scene, as well as Mary Woronov, who played Calamity Jane in Death Race 2000.
