The Practicality Of Practical

No, this isn't an elaborate MOC, but it's something near and dear to me. It's also a statement in a single image. This is the great Anthony Daniels, Kenny Baker and Peter Mayhew of Star Wars fame. This image is to celebrate practical effects, or really in this case actors in costumes. If you look in the background you'll see Maz and Jar Jar, both CGI characters, seemingly wishing they had some humanity. As incredible as CGI is, it's still better to just have something in front of the camera.

We Love Practical Effects

A fun little bit of irony though. That chrome sphere being held by Tony? It is actually used to improve lighting on CGI.
