i was inspired
2 June 2005 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

well, say what you will about the show, but I was inspired by it as a kid growing up in the mid 90s (the kind who built model airplanes and made short movies while his friends played sports), and its one of the reasons I am now studying 3D modeling for visual effects and animation.

I don't know if this show would have the same impact today, seeing as how movie audiences take visual effects for granted as part of the movie-going experience (which is exactly how its SUPPOSED to be) but it certainly sparked my interest.

apparently, to make a comment on this page, you need at least 10 lines of text. being the thrifty "say more with less words" guy that I am, feel free to read my line filler.

La-la-la...

blah blah blah...

you talking to ME?

Chewie, they're behind you! BBRRRAAAWWWW!!!!
