Welcome to Show #23!
Interview: John Vulich, owner of Optic Nerve Studios
Tim, Summer and Jeffrey chat with John Vulich, owner of the special effects house that created all of the B5 aliens we’ve all come to love.
John tells us about getting involved with the show, with creating the show’s new aliens and refining the ones established in the pilot, about working with the prosthetics to make them less invasive for actors, on designing and creating robotic creatures, and much more. John also tells us a what little he can about NBC’s new Fall series, “Heroes”.
Listener Feedback: Tim, Summer and Jeffrey dive into emails and comments from the blog: Sun comments on technical tidbits in “Survivors”; Matt comments on “By Any Means Necessary” and labor negotiations; Michael lets us know that JMS mentioned the podcast in recent comments published in Volume 8 of the script books.
This week’s voicemail is a message from Ivanova in Wisconsin about the importance of the B5 station in the Shadow War, and how the Shadows may have been more interested in all of the Babylon stations much earlier than demonstrated in the series, and Tim muses on whether they were really responsible for the demise of the first three stations.
Your feedback does matter, and is welcome! You can call us, or email us and tell us what you think… and likely hear it played or read on the show. Please try to keep the voicemail comments as brief as possible.
