Are miniatures disappearing from our world? What is it that makes filming miniatures and practical effects so expensive? (HINT: it's not the building cost!) Why does the public have biases about practical or digital effects? How do you pick between these two approaches to creating visuals for a film or television series? There are no easy answers, but Richard Taylor and Jamie Anderson are two of the people most qualified to have an educated discussion about it! See Pods 161 and 162 for parts one and two of this fascinating interview.
