Alien vs. Predator Galaxy recently had the opportunity to be joined once again on our podcast by the amazing Tom Woodruff Jr. Though the episode is primarily about performing inside the Alien suit, while talking about collaboration between director and the VFX teams Tom did tell us a little about his experience with collaborating with the VFX team when working on Skulls and how that competitiveness between digital and practical VFX teams has changed.
We just finished this movie Skulls. I can’t tell you what it’s about. We actually had VFX guys that came up and said “hi, welcome to the laziest VFX guys you’ll ever meet.” I went “what do you mean?” and he goes “look, tell us what you need from us rather than us coming in and saying ‘we can do that shot.'” It was such a great cohabitation with these guys, that we’re all working on the same thing together and nobodies trying to cart out a piece for themselves. So that’s changed. That’s certainly changed over the years.
The full episode itself is currently scheduled to go live tomorrow – November 12th – at 3pm GMT! Make sure you check back in with Alien vs. Predator Galaxy to listen or watch it when it drops! Tom, along with his partner Alec, have joined us on the podcast several times over the years.
If you’re looking for something to keep you entertained while waiting for our new interview, why not check out our previous chats? Alec and Tom joined us for Alien Day to talk about the series over all, and Alec also spoke to us after the release of The Predator to talk about their own on ADI’s first solo Predator film!
