Well another recovery day and more Star Wars Ep3 - love this movie. Watching it more times you can see the astounding amount of background work that went into almost every shot. The incredible layers of creative effort involved in bringing the whole together. Simple things like the number of people who might 'play' a character, from the actor, stunt doubles, digital versions, sword specialsits with digitally replaced heads, shots of effects peoples hands and so forth.
Have started reading Dune, Frank Herbert in scant few pages has already revealed a truly living world (not just Arrakis, but the the interplay of planets and houses etc throughout the galaxy). It is similar to SW in that respect - having a deep and living environment in which the story unfolds. I am looking forward to seeing it all unfold.
