Star Wars: The Force Awakens – Comic-Con 2015 ReelJuly 10, 2015
Everything feels familiar and wonderful while watching this.
The first (of what I assume will be many) of behind the scenes previews of Star Wars: The Force Awakens has been released at San Diego Comic Con. This short preview shows the labour of love that JJ Abrams is really putting into this film and how he struggled with mixing the old practical effects with the new modern digital technology that is available.
One wonderful thing in this that you barely see any of, is green screen. There is almost none at all due to the fact that so much was made by hand and so many of the actors playing different creatures were in costume, and not just thrown in a green jumpsuit and expect to live and breathe the character.
This video has really gotten me pumped up to see the final cut on screen, and I hope the love that this crew is putting in to the film translates onto the screen as well.
