Tron 20 Years Later
from the what-computer-animation-used-to-be dept
SF Gate has an interview with the director of Tron, Steven Lisberger, to commemorate the twentieth anniversary of the cult techie movie. He talks about how they made parts of the movie, and about how he’d rather work in the garden these days than surf the net. Interestingly, he says that despite the many innovations they did with computers to create the movie, they weren’t nominated for a special effects Oscar – because the Academy thought they “cheated” by using computers.
