The Secrets of Skyfall
That's an amazing vid - rather spoilery compared to anything else we've seen, so fair warning to anyone else going in with the hope to stay entirely blind to the plot, but also highly entertaining. I especially like how Craig and Mendes speak about the production. It reminds me a lot of how we're approaching Spycraft Third - more about the craft of it, digging in and figuring out the how and why before you decide on the what, not being afraid of chances in the pursuit of excellence, and taking the time you need to really nail the perfect realization of something that's bigger and beyond any of you.
I also appreciate what I'm perceiving from this to be the new take on Q. It's been my plan for that part of our engine for a good long while now, and it'll be nice to have the core cinematic staple of the genre doing the same.
