It took four years of blue screen shooting in his living room and work on a Macintosh II for Kerry Conran to complete his black and white short of Sky Captain and the World of Tomorrow. Through a friend of his brother’s wife, he was introduced to producer Jon Avnet who shepherded the project into a full-length feature film that would stretch the limits of computer technology.

In this episode of The 602 Club host Matthew Rushing is joined by Megan Calcote and Darren Moser to talk about Sky Captain and the World of Tomorrow. We discuss our first encounters with the movie, the story, the revolutionary nature of the film, the look, the fun sci-fi gadgets, the cast and characters, the music, wrapping up with final thoughts, ratings and why everyone should watch Sky Captain.
