    Episode 40 - 2010: The Year We Make Content

    Episode 40 - 2010: The Year We Make Content

    2010 Year has docked! We’re celebrating the 40th anniversary of Peter Hyams & Arthur Clarke’s knockout followup, 2010: The Year We Make Contact with a year of exciting discoveries following the team who rediscover Discovery One!
    And, of course, we still have plenty more to come on 2001.
    This week, a (fairly) spoiler-free introduction to 2010, the background, our love for it, and why we believe it deserves just as much conversation and provokes as many questions for what it is: NOT a sequel to perhaps the greatest motion picture of all time, but its own fascinating story told its own way. A Kubrick-sanctioned, Arthur C. Clarke-written, Academy Award-nominated science fiction classic.
    Plus: we’ve booked a ride on the Europa Clipper! (We will attempt no landing there.)

    Episode 39 - Behind The Concierge Desk

    Episode 39 - Behind The Concierge Desk

    Checking in to the universe's most exclusive hotel, it's time to unpack, explore, and maybe play a little chess. Is that a Louis XVI throne pod?
    Dave and Frank's relationship, and humans' innate need for each other. Long-term isolation: is it tao, torment, or vacation?
    Gilded cage or petrie dish, this surreal environment evokes the most basic questions of life:What is time?  When is a ceiling a floor? Are we in the bathroom?
    So many hidden meanings, so little much time. 
    Plus: Homesteading Space by David Hitt and the Skylab gravitational belly pull factor.

    Episode 37 - Beyond The Beyond: ”2001” and the Future of VFX

    Episode 37 - Beyond The Beyond: ”2001” and the Future of VFX

    Every science fiction movie since "2001" has been inspired, directly or indirectly by it, often even employing its original visual effects pioneers. For one artist, slit-scan was just the beginning...
    Cinerama to IMAX to the future of moving images with MAGI - Douglas Trumbull has always been at the forefront of experiential cinema.
    In films like "2001," "Silent Running," "Close Encounters," and "Blade Runner," and large format exhibitions like "To The Moon and Beyond" and "Back To The Future: The Ride" he invented and innovated his way into movie history, and ended up with a few patents along the way.
    From the 1960s to his untimely death last year he left behind a massive body of experimental work that is decades ahead of current technology, paving the way for the virtual stage production of "Avatar," VR performance capture, and immersive technology to come.

Beeker the muppet ,

Great Insight

I immediately had to watch 2001 again to see all of the cool stuff this pod cast pointed out. 2001 is a true classic nice to see other fans.
