The Optical is a podcast revisiting the history of VFX films and technology, often through the lens of Cinefex magazine. In late 2013, I started a blog to go with an idea that I had for a podcast, to (re)read all of the print issues of Cinefex magazine in my collection, and revisit older VFX movies from the heyday of practical effects. The podcast started in January 2014, and so far, we've released 24 episodes. During that time, I've had the pleasure of interviewing great minds like Douglas Trumbull, Harrison Ellenshaw and John Van Vliet, and Howie Weed. I'm kinda proud that we've made it this far.
