The Movie Defenders

The Movie Defenders podcast is a show dedicated to talking about the best things about the films you love, not tear everything down.

Jul 22, 2019

After months of work we are so thrilled to bring you our exclusive interview with Industrial Light and Magic. This is a long-form interview you will only hear right here on The Movie Defenders podcast! We have the great privilege to interview Alexis Borchardt, Production Coordinator at ILM. We talk everything visual effects as Alexis schools us on what the internet gets wrong about effects in film, how negative reactions to films affect folks in the business, how it is to work with folks like Michael Bay, J.J. Abrams, John Krasinski, and Emily Blunt. We ask your questions and bring you a peek behind the curtain like no one else can. Before that we also have fun talking about the MCU Phase 4 announcements from San Diego Comic-Con, the breathtaking Top Gun: Maverick trailer, and the top 5 MCU stand-alone villains. If you thought you knew things about visual effects, think again and come listen to a once in a lifetime opportunity to learn how your favorite films are made. So take the "I" out of CGI, get your assets together, and get ready to "Final" the take as we talk with the only person on planet earth that can claim they've actually slapped Optimus Prime on the Movie Defenders podcast!
