A journey back through the annals of Cinefex magazine, talking about the movies and topics they covered 30+ years ago. We'll talk to people involved in the films, people who make movies, and people who love movies, and hopefully have a fun time doing it.

Customer Reviews

Nostalgic magic

Love this show. Makes me feel like a kid watching those old star wars documentaries about kids making their own special effect shots. Give incredible insight and one of a kind interviews with the people who were there making this stuff happen.

Nice History Lesson

…..for some of us, it really wasn't that long ago. What an enjoyable podcast to reminisce about the vfx past. Even though I haven't read the early issue recently, its amazing what details re-surface years later, now from a modern day perspective.
Our VFX hero's are and always will be just that.
Good Jobs Guys!


Love the concept of following along with the classic Cinefex issues. The guests/host do a great job of adding interesting discussions and insight about visual effects and film-making from an industry point of view.

Can't wait for more episodes.
