Hitchhikers Say No to CG
Hitchhikers Say No to CG [ Film & TV -> Interview ]

In a recent interview, producer Robbie Stamp talked about the special effects used in The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy.  He said that wherever possible, they tried not to use CG.
"I think the guiding principle was to not do everything with [computer-generated imagery]," Stamp said in an interview at WonderCon in San Francisco last weekend. "So there's an awful lot of stuff that is done in-camera. We've got real creatures. [Director] Garth [Jennings] has used some of the oldest ... filmmaking tricks in the book. ... I think we wanted something which had a sort of a heart and soul and a charm to it. ... [With] some of the bigger, huge CGI epics, ... maybe just some of their heart and soul and fun has gone out of them."
This is an old school crew.  I'm glad to see that there are still some people out there who don't rely on flashy graphics for a box office draw.  They just want to make a good movie.
