Is there an English or German dub of Legend of the Galactic Heroes?

It will still take years to get to the point where CGI looks so real that it will actually make us feel uneasy. Right now CG is just plain shit.

The way they show that, for the 3D, couldn't be done with forced perspective like they did in LOTR. So they set up two cameras, one on the dwarf actors and Bilbo on a real set with all the props, then another timed to move exactly as the first filming Ian McKellan on the green set, alone and acting to cues he gets in an earpiece(that didn't work very well) using the lights to match the positions of the dwarf heads so he knows where to look when they're talking. And he knows they're talking because that particular dwarf's head lights up.
It was very frustrating for Ian and the image in >>100253952 shows him breaking down because it just wasn't what he's ever been trained to deal with.
I feel really bad for him because he's such a great actor and a great guy and Jackson's decisions to do it all in 3D and all in CGI are really abysmal and detrimental to the overall film and the actors working on it.
>>
>>100254273
Here's the trick:

>Step Uno: Bring up movies in conversation (Ex.: Aah, that reminds of that one scene in that movie)

Inevitably, one of you will mention other movies and such, so you'll be talking about movies in general

>Step 2: say something along the lines of: "So, speaking about movies, have you seen [movie you want to see]?"

If the answer is yes, no dice. If no:

>Step 3: "Well, I haven't either! Wanna go see it together this weekend or something?"

Try to get an actual confirmed date and time, because things like "Yeah, we should some time" are easily forgotten.

Also, since this is /a/ and everyone has asperger's I feel the need to add this: if they politely decline, just shut fuck up and talk about something else.
>>

One thing most people will agree on is Practical > CG. Always have, and always will. The only people that will argue the fact are those who work in 3D, and have scholarships that allow them to continue making movie cancer.

>“I was acting on my own and the dwarfs were represented around my little set by faces on top of photographs on top of stands which lit up according to whoever was speaking,” McKellen continued. “It wasn’t the pictures of the dwarfs, it was pictures of the actors playing the dwarfs, and I couldn’t always relate them to the people I’d just been rehearsing with. At the end of the day, I got a bit tearful and said to myself, ‘Oh dear, this isn’t why I became an actor,’ then realized that I was speaking into my microphone that was turned on and the whole studio heard me.”
