Wow, how did they splice in CGI green screens in all of those authentic shots? Amazing.

So, this really begs the question: Why are we still using actors? It's almost charmingly nostalgic to mix old fashioned icky people with all our kickass post-processing.

I see it as the opposite: this is just a more expensive version of the painted backdrops in movies like The Grapes of Wrath, or the fake ceilings in Citizen Kane, etc.

Not to be an ass about grammar, but I hope you'll check out the WP page on begging the question. It annoys uppity university types like me when it's used to mean that a question is being raised.

More recently, "to beg the question" has been used as a synonym for to raise the question. For example, "This year's budget deficit is ten trillion dollars. This begs the question: how are we ever going to balance the budget?"

Using the term in this way, although common, is considered incorrect by prescriptive grammarians. This usage is the result of confusion over the translation of petitio principii, which literally translates as "assuming the starting point". (Arguments over whether this current usage should be considered incorrect are an example of debate over linguistic prescription and description and the historical evolution of language.)

nah man, even us descriptivists think shit like "begging the question" and "irregardless" is pretty dumb.

This saves the studio a massive amount of money, compared to trying to haul the equipment downtown and outside and to corn fields etc. CGI has become that relatively cheap.

Old_Zircon
Pretty much all CGI in major movies is a cost cutting device first and an artistic choice second if at all.

Turns out the Japanese guys from Heroes is actually Carrie Fisher.

These guys are among the best compositors out there. Almost always spot-on with their lighting/value/focus integration.

I love the ones where they splice in some parked cars or an empty street or whatever. Is getting a liscence to just film on the street that much more expensive?
pastorofmuppets
It may even be cheaper. But you have more control over things this way, and you can film more things in one location and avoid the cost of moving sets and talent. Especially with sitcoms, where you have a lot of short episodes and inevitably the writers want to set some of them in NYC or the Caribbean or something.

You can also keep the action in the background consistent in case you need to make multiple takes. Also you don't have to close off streets or worry about some smartass jumping into the shot and fucking things up.

Of course it's fake. TV has this think called a budget.
CGI is the only reason we have this influx of "epic" TV shows nowadays.

Yes, I'm jaded :P
Reefer Fez
That's the way visual effects should be; subtle, not in your face.
Redlof
So this is why everything on tv is overcomplicated and lifeless.

no that's just the effect LA has on people
