CGI is something that most DPs both hate and fear. A poor CG job can completely crumble the foundation that was built by a DP on a project.

Very nice -- kind of scary though, if CGI really gets to this level, it could hurt cinematographers industry.

Usually when someone says that they don't usually post something like this, or don't normally do that, or whatever, I am prone to disregard it. I watched this knowing the integrity of the o-f-e staff and that you guys don't post junk. I was and am blown away. This is truly incredible and inspiring. Thanks for sharing.
