We're talking about the movies YOU grew up with!

066.5 – TFFP: PariahCon 2012 Panel – Battle of FX: Practical Vs. CGI

EP66.5-Pariahcon - courtesy of Kevin Spencer - inkspatters.comIn this episode of The Forgotten Flix Podcast, it’s a bonus episode (okay, not really, since we’re releasing it in place of a “normal” episode, but it’s definitely something different…)!

In April of 2012, Jason and Joel were invited to present a panel at PariahCon, a convention held in central Florida. Jason had the idea to present a panel on practical vs. CGI FX, whereas Joel thought a panel on the fine art of being a “Best Boy” (look it up) would draw in the crowds.

Needless to say, Jason (thankfully) won out.
