It was the evening of September 8, 2007 and I was sitting in a taxi on my way to the Emmys.
Dressed as a Colonial Warrior.
We were already halfway to the Shrine Auditorium and there was only one thing on my mind: we weren’t supposed to win.
For almost a decade now, more and more innovative CGI (Computer Generated Imagery) meant that spaceships, once the bread-and-butter of the visual effects industry, just didn’t win Emmys anymore. Sure, “Exodus – Part II” was exciting, and I had the time of my life facing the Pegasus off against three Baseships, but it just never crossed my mind that it would come to this.
