When it comes to creature effects, trends come and go in Hollywood. From latex suits to CGI, at any given time, the silver screen has its favorites. And falls from grace can hurt something awful. Just ask Phil. In the 1960s, he was hot shit. But now, in an era of motion capture, no one wants to hire a stop-motion animated skeleton monster.

Pixar’s Onward is out soon on home entertainment release, and one of the featurettes that will be included is about how the team ‘conjured’ Dad, the character which is initially just a pair of pants.

Welcome to 4:3 & Forgotten — a weekly column in which Rob Hunter and I get to look back at TV terrors that scared adults (and the kids they let watch) across the limited airwaves of the ’70s.

I started seeing, too, a bunch of fun Zoom captures or other ‘home set-up’ images from the studios, so I’d thought I’d embed some here. Note, there’s of course a whole lot of VFX studios who have successfully implemented remote working – many of which have been operating like this for a number of weeks already – that might not appear here.

The “hidden man” is how editor Lee Smith sees himself in 1917. Not for a second did Smith want audiences paying attention to his cuts or tricks, but to instead immerse themselves in director Sam Mendes‘ World War I story, which is constructed to take place in one seemingly unbroken take. Despite the obvious technical wizardry and razzle-dazzle, they pulled it off. Audiences were caught up in the feeling and exhilaration of 1917, not the craft of 1917.

Let’s face it, there are a lot of great NLE’s out there. We all have our favorites and many of us use more than one. If Final Cut Pro X is not one of them, now is the perfect time to learn. If you’re stuck working from home with time on your hands, head over to the Apple FCPX web page and download a 90 day trial.

Thanks to the creative carte-blanche of its villain, the original A Nightmare on Elm Street is full of surreal practical effects. When you’re a demonic wise-guy who hunts victims in their dreams, you’re able to pull some freaky, nightmarish shit. From body bags erupting with eels to clawed hands emerging from bathtubs and stairs turning to mush, when it comes to terrorizing teens, Freddy Krueger likes to dream big.

We are in a very different and testing time at the moment. A lot of freelance editors are at home having had their work cancelled, some right up to September. They will be back at their keyboards hopefully some time this year, but the industry has changed.
