OSCon, day 5

Day 5 was a little bit of a disappointment, really. I think that I had Milton Ngan’s talk built up a little too much in my expectations, so that when he did not show a preview of Return of the King, I felt rather let down. He showed some very cool stuff about Gollum and the Ents, but nothing approaching the amazing stuff that he showed us last year. Apparently he was unable to obtain permission to show us anything of the upcoming movie. I would expec that it would be inthe best interests of the movie makers to have the geek community fired up about their movie, as long as they didn’t show any “spoilers.” Not that you can really show spoilers when the book has been out for 40 years. Sheesh.
