What makes an action scene boring? Action scenes should be exciting and fun, but often it's just the opposite! In this Quackcast we discuss the topic of Tantz's newspost from the other day and tackle this hard question. These were Tantz's conclusions: - You don’t yet care enough for the characters involved in the action to worry about them. - If the action is introductory you don't get to understand what's happening enough to care. - The action is badly choreographed or ‘cut’ in a way that the audience can’t understand what is going on. - The action is too much too soon, and back to back. In this Quackcast we try to delve a little more into that :)
The featured music this week by Gunwallace was for Starfox Adventures The Comic: Firing the main rockets and racing through space, laser pulses and bolts of plasma streak past in glowing lines of destruction as you smoothly barrel roll to avoid them.
