Re: Galileo Restoration Update - Jan 2012
I don't think Trevanian is unaware of the realities of VFX technology and it's capabilities/limitations. Call it a hunch. ;
Trevanian's second paragraph suggests some familiarity with the subject. My response was intended for others. The video you posted was a nice supplement, yet still glosses over some of the basics, such as reflections from the real location, whether actors must totally imagine what they are looking at, or have some reference points on location, etc.
