Sky Captain and the World of Tomorrow (2004) Episode 5 | Make It Better!

Make it Better! Podcast

Next up Make it Better! Podcast episode #5: Join Pat, Lindsay and Titus as they watch the green screen marvel that was Sky Captain and the World of Tomorrow (2004).

This movie aims to instill wonder. But instead it leaves the team wondering: Why didn’t they at least build some sets? What’s Gwyneth Paltrow up to these days? Why are the robots so sensitive? And how many tennis balls on sticks were used in the making of this film?

She spent hours of her own time studying for the role… That is sad.

The crew get busy talking about why Sky Captain’s bad but they have trouble finding the inspiration to make it better. Titus’ solution is to better capture the magic of a 1930’s serial. Pat is concerned that you can’t separate the green screen component from the movie without changing it too drastically and Lindsay believes it should have been a much smaller production. Can they make a movie out of this tech demo? Listen and find out.
