A cool picture of Kerry working in the early day's of his film.

Ah, the days of limited memory, Zip and SyQuest cartridges.

Kerry Conran's original 6 minute 'Sky Captain' short



Thanks to Harry Thorpe2010 for his most excellent Sky Captain video.

After seeing this movie I was surprised to learn the real story behind it and thought it would make a good podcast.

If you're a movie production and FX geek like me, there's an excellent documentary on the DVD.
I still have some of my vintage gear like Kerry used to make his short film. ;)

Davekill, that was an excellent podcast!  I loved the behind the scenes stuff.  I'm re-watching it tonight after work.

Thank you M-5! :)

Jon Avnet cautioned Kerry on his first draft about being too much of a 'Boys with toys' film and was surprised on the second draft how sophisticated Kerry had made the characters relationships.

Myself, I like the James Bond angle of Sky Captain's plane and the other British elements, Brits are cool.
Even though the tension between Joe and Polly was necessary, but I wouldn't call it a Chick Flick - he's just a guy with girl trouble.

Needless to say I'm a huge fanboy of this film.

You guest podcasters!  Every time I listen to one of these movie review podcasts I just have to go back and watch the movie with the inside knowledge.  Darn!  (but a real good darn!).  Great one @Davekill.

Hi all to the form, I just listen to the skycaptain podcast just this past weekend.  it was a great podcast.  Me and my brother went to see when it was first released.  we both enjoyed it but it seemed like it could have been better some how.  I just watched the oral short here on the forum and it was just cool just like the opening of the movie.  btw, I just read from the nerdiest news that it ranks number 2 in what movies they would like to  have in a 3D conversion.
I am going with the best information that I have.

Good point - maybe the story would have been better as a short series rather than a stand-alone-movie.

I liked the Avengers movie partly because it revisited 'the scene of the crime', but on a grander scale.
Both movies had a lot in common; the battle in Manhatten, flying aircraft carrier, and Gwyneth Paltrow.

Glad you like the review :)
