Whether you like or dislike the storyline for the new Tron, you can't deny how good looking it all is (or maybe you can, but I love the way it looks anyhow, maybe not as much as the original but it's a pretty good light show). I thought it'd be an interesting post comparing the making of documentaries from both films. For the original Tron you have two documentaries to choose from, the short one from the collectors edition DVD or the 9 part long one from 1982...enjoy!
This is a slick making of video from Digital Domain about their VFX work for Tron Legacy. Digital Domain: http://www.digitaldomain.com/ and Tron Legacy official website: http://disney.go.com/tron/
VS. ORIGINAL TRON
THE SHORT DOCUMENTARY...
From the Collector Edition's DVD. Cool to hear how inspired John Lasseter was by Tron! Also insane animation procedure for the 3D CG.
THE LONG DOCUMENTARY... (1 of 9)
