fuck cgi

i'm so done with cg, dudes.
i just rarely give 2 fucks about whatever is portrayed with it.
just because you CAN show it, doesnt mean i want it.

spend some more money and show me just a little something.
make it something you really wanna show.
the rule of thumb is: if its not important enough to spend the money doing with analog effects, then it doesnt need to be in the movie.

the philosophy of 'with cg, you can show extra things that would have other wise been left out or just impossible' is dead wrong imo.
too often, movies have been flooding me with meaningless moments.
'cameras' spiraling across vast landscapes or impossibly elaborate buildings. zooming around every corner.
or 'matrixing' around little details frozen in time during some action. then accelerating back to real-time.
guess what:
none of it fucking impresses me anymore.
a massive sworm of randomized copies of the same bat makes my boner try to escape thru my ass. 

its not sublime. its fake. not just cuz its an effect. because i'm mortal. mortals dont see things that way. gods do. i want to be a man and experience things like a man. not like some cyber-bird on crack.

so all you directors out there who are frothing and chomping at the bit to make your movie and pump it full of cg miracle grow: just stop.
you have no understanding of humanity.
you have lost touch with good movie making along with the hordes of your contemporaries. and i'm calling you out as hacks.
go home.

using it to create a simple background that saves major money is acceptable.

but it does bother me when the actors have to work in a greenscreen environment.
its getting to the point where you can tell they were having trouble feeling the moment.
i think actors should have that privilege most of the time. actors are expected to work blind so much now. i see it as a slap in the face to their art.

baby boomers mooching on me

i'm getting tired of explaining every little thing to my coworkers.
over and over.  and they've been doing this job since before i was born.
ever since computers took over, they have absolutely no understanding or ability to learn without constant grinding and dog-training. they take notes and never consult them. or they forget which note is relevant. if something requires any interactive care, where the solution might be many steps, they just can't handle it and it gets dumped on me. or it gets done wrong and i have to redo it.
its getting to the point where i am more short and rude with them. or really stern sounding like a disciplinary father. its incredibly frustrating. the work isnt even that hard. and i'm not all that smart. these people are only working here because the bosses are in the same boat. they will stick together until they can all retire and then further rely on me to take care of them at home.
