With Bill Desowitz away covering Disneylands 50th festivities, Ill be recapping the past week on VFXWORLD and give you a hint of what is to come. The summer film season has official kicked off and Mary Ann Skweres covers last weeks box office champ THE HITCHHIKERS GUIDE TO THE GALAXY. Alain Bielik gets extreme with his coverage of XXX: STATE OF THE UNION. Bill investigates the new renaissance in the use of 3D with and without the glasses. In addition, we posted another excerpt from the book INSPIRED 3D SHORT FILM PRODUCTION.
Bill and I will be seeing STAR WARS: EPISODE III: REVENGE OF THE SITH tomorrow and well give our readers a sneak peek at our thoughts next week. Moreover, Bill will have three in-depth SITH articles on the new trilogys overall vfx, digital character General Grievous and CG environments later in the month.
