Several Eternals Costumes Were Entirely CGI

Welcome to your (probably daily) reminder that technology is absolutely wild and the future is here (whether you like it or not).

Hell, CGI is so commonplace now that it becomes actual news when films use practical effects instead. However, it seems like Chloé Zhao's "Eternals" really upped the ante when it comes to creatively using CGI. These aren't just...

Baseball And Betting Entering New Partnerships

Baseball’s past history with betting is notable, if not exactly memorable. Eight members of the Chicago White Sox were banned for life by Major League Baseball, accused of taking money from gamblers to throw the 1919 World Series to the Cincinnati Reds. Decades later, Red manager Pete Rose, baseball’s all-time hits leader, was also banned for life after proof was supplied that he’d bet on games. These days, the landscape of the relationship between baseball and betting has been drama...

The Story of the SynthAxe, the Astonishing 1980s Guitar Synthesizer: Only 100 Were Ever Made

What is the musical instrument most thoroughly of the 1980s? Many would say the "keytar," a class of synthesizer keyboards shaped and worn like a guitar. Their relatively light weights and affordable prices, even when first brought to market, put keytars within the reach of musicians who wanted to possess both the wide sonic palette of digital synthesis and the inherent cool of the guitarist. This arrangement wasn't without its compromises: few keytar players enjoyed the full range of th...

VOTD: VFX Artists React to Marvel’s ‘Avengers: Endgame’

One of the movies nominated for Best Visual Effects at the Academy Awards last night was Avengers: Endgame. It was the only Oscar nomination that the Marvel Studios blockbuster could muster, and considering the fact that nearly every single shot in the movie requires the use of visual effects, they certainly deserved it. But not every movie is perfect, and even though Avengers: Endgame has some truly incredible visual effects throughout, mistakes were made, and one of them is addressed in a new...

So it was surprising to see that film play such a significant role in Avengers: Endgame, and according to the visual effects supervisor who oversaw Endgame‘s final battle, there was almost another callback to The Dark World in the form of dark elves serving in Thanos’s army. That ended up not happening in the end, but read on for a break...
