Reality Effects

The worst result of using computer effects on the screen is our resulting cynicism about what’s real and not real. We are not willing to suspend disbelief. I’m not a big fan of extreme sports, but this base jump has a certain epic poetry to it. Probably there is nothing artificial to the footage – except the pacing and style of editing. But, it doesn’t feel real. How sad.
