Ahoy, squirts! Quint here with today’s Behind the Scenes Pic!
I can explain! This time the big gap between BTS images wasn’t work overload or travel (although I’ve had my fair share of both in this last week), but something even more beyond my control.
While in LA for a big Jaws Blu-Ray junket (video interviews coming up, fancy right?) my laptop took a little spill. To quote Hooper, “and this is what happens:”
Also I didn’t quite have my desktop computer (or my computer desk for that matter) set up at my brand new house, so it took a little elbow grease when I finally got home to get me back up and running. Many apologies for the delay. It kills me to be inconsistent with this column, which was set up with the express purpose of being a regular, daily dose of movie geekness. For a couple years I’ve been pretty on the ball with it, but it seems recently the fates have conspired against me.
So, mea culpas aside, here’s the long-awaited BTS picture, this time from the making of ET. We can file this one under the “this is why I love practical effects” tab. I bet you’re never going to look at ET’s hands the same way again!
Thanks once again to the good folks at the Practical Effects Group for sharing this one. Click to enlargen.
If you have a behind the scenes shot you’d like to submit to this column, you can email me at email@example.com.
I’m still scrambling a bit here, trying to pull as much material off of my laptop as I can. The hard drive still seems to run, so I’m going to firewire rescue as much stuff as I can. That’s my fancy way of saying I’m not exactly sure what tomorrow’s pic will be.
