Referring to Gary7's astonishment...

All this cool sh*t that can be done by talented individuals of "modest" means nowadays. Back when we were kids ("we" being people of our mid 40s to mid 50s), all we had were 8mm film cameras that were fortunate to even have sound. We had to make do with foreground miniatures that required the cameras be "locked" lest we experience tracking issues resulting from "wobbling". Oh, and don't get me started on "focal lengths", trying to keep both the model near the camera and the actors meters away in sharp relief!

You kids today...! Feh! Where's my Geritol?!

Sincerely,

Bill
