560 - Books and VFX
Play • 53 min

John and Craig look at visual effects from both a creative and budgetary perspective. From set extensions to blue screens, the guys discuss the hidden costs and tricks of post-production.

We also cover the options screenwriters have when optioning books. We cover formal (and less-formal) arrangements, loose adaptations and answer a listener question on making shorts.

In our bonus segment for premium members, we share our experiences with nightmares and the secret behind Craig’s anti-monster spray.
