I am a huge fan of your work, thank you for taking the time to do this!! Couple Questions: Any Hellboy 3 details you can share?! A lot of your films largely use practical effects and makeup instead of CGI. While, from what I’ve heard, CGI can be more cost effective and quicker, they can sometimes take me out of the experience. Practical effects always make the characters feel like they are more real and seem more detailed while on screen. A good example of this would be the comparison of CGI Bolg(left) to practical Bolg(right) from “The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug” seen here: http://www.thelandofshadow.com/wp-content/uploads/2014/03/BolgvsBolg.jpg I was curious what your thoughts were on where the industry is headed in terms of special effects and the large shift towards CGI?

Hello there! I'm a huge fan of your film, "The Host", as it was a unique take on a monster movie that was packed with exciting action, hilarious moments and great family drama.

I wanted to ask, do you think that the monster movie genre is something you would be willing to return to, whether it be for a "The Host sequel or an entirely new direction? Thank you!

Thank you so much for answering! Really bummed to hear that about Hellboy 3 though. I fully agree with you that "only in the instances in which you cannot do it with physical FX should you resort to digital FX".
