What do you want to see more of at befores & afters?
Hi readers, it’s been a big year at befores & afters. I’ve been aiming to post content pretty much daily here, there’s the brand new print publication (!), and technical stories have been ramping up on the site as well.
But what would you like to see more of in 2021? Let me know what kinds of stories, coverage and retro pieces you want to read. Hit me up in the comments or via email at email@example.com.
Thanks for reading, as always. – Ian

I`m into retro stories 🙂 I mean deep retro or historical like John Fulton or A. Arnold Gillespie stories from the 30-s and 40-s. Or the Lydecker brothers. And I`m sure Craig Barron has a lot of such stories to tell. But the actual ones are good too.
Oh! Yeah, just dying to know how did they do young Luke in The Mandalorian 🙂 with before and after pics please 🙂
How about a Retro RenderMan story with “Meet the Robinsons”? Also, since there was an article about Framestore’s work on bears, it would be great if there an article about MPC’s work on big cats.
How about a couple of “where are they now” stories. Thinking about guys like Steve “Spaz” Williams and Mark Dippe who worked with Dennis Muren on T2 and Jurassic Park. They then decided to do Spawn, and I haven’t heard from them since. Also John Berton, Stefan Fangmeier, Eric Brevig, Michael McCallister, Mike Owens, the list goes on. And some long gone (but not forgotten) VFX studios like Video Image and Boss.
Great suggestion – I’ve talked to pretty much all those guys for recent stories here at befores & afters (just search for them), but a round up of what they are up to now could totally work.
I would be very interested in some stories on 70s Irwin Allen disaster films! (Poseidon Inferno, Towering Inferno) Or what about Fantastic Voyage from 1966, or Voyage to the center of the world (1959).
