  • I’m not sure I got the point here. Even very young children learn quickly these days that “seeing is believing” is no longer true, if it ever was!

    Actually I thought it made a very valid point. At least it appears so to me. As a viewer, we know when special effects etc. are used. But, then there are times like in the vid, when we by default assume that the people on screen are say actually walking down the street. Very interesting vid. What is real and what is the blue screen? Tough to decipher. The line differentiating the two is not clear for the viewer.

    Can’t edit above comment. But when there are fancy effects, then we are alive to the fact that virtual tech is at work. But like the running into glass wall at 0:33 into vid. At least for me, if I had watched it on TV, I would have thought that the actress actually ran into a REAL glass wall rather than a computer generated background.
