Broken Projector: The Man Who Paints The Future


The fantastically talented TyRuben Ellingson has been painting the future for years. Getting his start as a VFX art director on Jurassic Park, he’s gone on to envision vehicles, worlds and weaponry for James Cameron, Guillermo del Toro and more. This summer his work can be seen stomping in Pacific Rim and flying through Neill Blomkamp’s Elysium, and we were lucky enough to speak with him about his ever-expanding sci-fi universe.

Plus, Geoff defends screenwriter Damon Lindelof for saying he’s tired of destruction porn with a straight face, and we challenge ourselves to sum up the week’s movie news in only three words.

You should check out Ellingson’s website, and follow the show (@brokenprojector), Geoff (@drgmlatulippe) and Scott (@scottmbeggs) on Twitter for more fun stuff on a daily basis.

And, as always, we welcome your feedback.
