In Star Wars Episode III, I just noticed that George Lucas picks parts from different takes of actors and morphs them within the same shot. Focus your eyes on Anakin, his face and hair starts to transform.
it symbolizes how Lucas himself changes over the course of the prequels, look at some of the photos of him from the time of episode 1, he has an adventurous smile and twinkle in his eye like an old uncle taking you somewhere you loved as a kid but haven't been able to visit for a long time, but as the prequels go on and the critical backlash increased he became a squat, angry looking toad with a grim and authoritarian gaze that almost seemed challenging you to dare criticize him to his face.
>In the future, movies will be made up of hundreds of thousands of 'micro-takes,' ensuring an absolutely perfect, hermetically engineered performance every time. Actors, rather than rehearsing and playing a scene straight through, just read each word of the script in alphabetical order. It's the editor's job to construct these bits of acting into a scene.
That's the easiest assignment I've ever seen. It would take less than an hour to post 10 times and give 40 upvotes and as long as you kissed lots of ass you would get 200 karma in no time.
Well desu Lucas was really pushing the envelope forwards in terms of non-linear editing and digital filmmaking, and he was one of, if not THE first person to ever try this, so we have to give him credit as a technical wizard for trying out something new.
I'm sure other directors have since done similar things, and the technology is more advanced now so it is even more seamless
