Thermochromic table by Jay Watson
imagine banging someone on that table
imagine being home alone and seeing imprints on that table
Imagine having a friend sit at that table for a long while, but when they get up there’s no imprints at all.
Why do y’all have to turn cool posts into some creepy-ass shit seriously I just wanted to enjoy the table

Why they felt the need to “enhance” all of this with CGI is beyond me…
This is just depressing. Look at all the time they put into that stuff, only to have it utterly replaced by CGI.
Seconding the above commentary, it’s very sad that all this work was replaced by very underwhelming CG effects. The alien pilot was removed entirely, even; but that was due to funding if I remember right. I’d like to know why they kicked out the suits and puppets, from this video it seems like they worked exactly as they were supposed to and could endure considerable use. The creatures would have had immensely greater punch on screen if they had kept the practical effects. I can’t imagine how the P-FX artists felt seeing their work being tossed after so much energy (and love!) had been invested.
I worked here years back and saw firsthand how much time, brilliance, and goddamn hard work goes into making convincing animatronic creatures. I’ve had work in a few films cut down to just a glimpse of a prop here or there. I’ve had puppets entirely replaced by CG. It’s always crushing, but it’s the nature of film and you learn to deal with it.
I just don’t get that - they already paid for the puppets and animatronics. Why would they spend MORE money having all of it replaced with CGI? Minor digital effects and color-correcting I would get, but to completely put something over it or the like?
