Pete M ALERT! All Armchair Sailors (82* d) RE: ALERT! All Armchair Sailors 05 Apr 01


We have seen some of the Hornblower TV series here in NZ and the thing that drove me mad, apart from the exploding round shot, is that the idiot in charge of the CGI obviously decided that a ship sailing along with all sails drawing was far too boring and not worthy of their talents, after all it could have been done by multiple images, so all the CGI ships tops'l were continually backing and flapping. I've always wonder why production companies are prepared to spend millions? on hiring replicas, special effects etc but can't, or won't, spend a few hundered on getting someone with some vague knowledge of real life to do a quality check. I suppose its too much to expect.
