How TV's blockbuster special effects have evolved to become "movie good"
"Today, every effects-driven series expects its monsters and spaceships and dragons to look like ones you’d see on the big screen," says Calum Marsh. "...Ask any producer, supervisor, or artist in the VFX industry about the difference between effects for movies and effects for TV and you will hear the same thing: These days, there is no difference. Most major effects houses work on both Hollywood blockbusters and high-profile television shows at the same time; the same people who bring to life, say, the luminescent lasso in Wonder Woman are the ones who cook up the robotic bulls in Westworld."
