A few decades later, "Toy Story" would become the first film to be entirely rendered in 3D animation. Since then, the use of CGI in film has taken off and never looked back. Gone are the days of special effects that rely on a particular form of physical artistry rather than the use of a computer. As dazzling and convincing as these computer generated effects ca...

Beneath the Bird Feeder

Rhodes is a wildlife conservation photographer, so the photos are good and she made certain to do the right thing with her feeder: Ethical considerations were at the forefront of this project. This included hanging the feeder in a tree away from house windows. If not cared for properly, bird feeders can be a vector for diseases, such as salmonella. To avoid this issue I regularly raked beneath th...

However, horror film franchises remain popular thanks to innovation. It's exciting when the original filmmaker can return to expand on their original visi...
