These guys are dope!
Ten Giant Robots is a real look under the hood of the visual effects/post-production industry from guys who have done it all and lived to tell the tale! I would listen every day, except then it would get old and I'd be like "They're so 2016" and that would be that. Join the conversation! Nerd out! Be a Los Angelino from afar!
Fun and informative
These guys offer a unique and rarely heard take on entertainment, both the business and the product of said subject. The intersection of VFX and story and how it all effect every single movie and TV show we see is a great jumping off point for these hosts. Hope they keep it up.
