A Scanner Darkly


The latest Wired Magazine features a cover article on digital animation's taking of Hollywood, as exemplified by the latest Philip K. Dick's story to be adapted to the big screen: A Scanner Darkly. The movie utilizes an effect called rotoscoping, which employs software to digitally trace live-action footage. The results are stunning, and well suited to the story it tells.

  1. Keanu Reeves, Robert Downey Jr, Winona Ryder, Woody Harrelson? Where did they get the cast? The local prison? In case you're wondering what criminal act Keanu is guilty of it's impersonating an actor, poorly.
    Too bad, I'm sure it could have been a good movie.
