Watch ILM Completely Digitally Create the Planets of Rogue One 

Watch ILM Completely Digitally Create the Planets of Rogue One  | F_C | Scoop.it
The best visual effects are the ones we don’t even see. In Rogue One, we know Tarkin isn’t physically there and that the Death Star doesn’t really exist.

Infelizmente a perspectiva é sobretudo ocidental, centrando-se bastante no Império Romano e, mais tarde, na…

How Ancient Legends Gave Birth to Modern Superheroes

How Ancient Legends Gave Birth to Modern Superheroes | F_C | Scoop.it
The images that pop up in most people’s heads when they think about superheroes can be traced back to the 1938 debut of Superman and the genre evolution that followed.
