Hey Folks, I just finished watching the Academy awards, and it looks like Lucas and his companies got NO awards this year! Suddenly it seems like Industrial Lights and Magic has run out of steam and Australia's WETA teams have struck and continue to strike paydirt. Although I liked the Gollum effects in the Two Towers, I really thought ILM had the effects beat in the Geonosis Battle. I mean, Gollum is just one guy (Who looks like he needs more than just ONE sandwich and ONE session of Therapy) but that battle was Chock full of donuts (oops) Full of the most exacting detail and Artistic endeavour. I say ILM should have gotten that award, how long would it have taken the Weta guys to do the same Geonosis Battle? I feel lately that ILM has lost some favor with audiences, am I wrong? I still believe they are highly capable. Does anyone know what Lucas Himself has to say about WETA?
