Adam puts on his Admiral Ackbar cosplay and walks the floor of San Diego Comic-Con incognito. Watch the making of this costume here.
Every year at Comic-Con, Adam walks through the convention floor disguised in costume. This year, he went as a very uniquely regal version of Admiral Ackbar from Star Wars. In Adam’s Cave before SDCC, we examine the Ackbar mask before it’s completed and explain its design, creation, and conversion into a wearable piece of cosplay.
Gary returns to explain the import of the selection of the 12th Doctor Who, Norm learns about the modern waterpark, and Will explores the zipper method. All that, plus the latest on Oculus VR, what’s in the Xbox One box, Jeff Bezos and the Washington Post, and a $200 sous vide Kickstarter. Enjoy!
This week, Adam, Will, and Norm discuss the legacy of practical special effects in film, their resurgence, and talk about the magazine Cinefex’s place in the history of special effects (both practical and digital). We also discuss the Kickstarter for the digital version of Cinefex (http://www.kickstarter.com/projects/newscribbler/cinefex-classic-collection).
Adam and Will geek out over Adam’s new microscope by putting as many different things as they can think of underneath it, including money, magazines, food, and even Will’s beard. Things get pretty weird at that point.
The beloved Wall-E robot was just computer generated graphics in the Pixar movie, but fans have spent years trying to bring him to life. We visit Mike McMaster’s workshop to see his incredible life-size Wall-E, a remote controlled robot that lives among an R2-D2 droid and other pets on Mike’s orange farm.
