Gore busted

ABC News kan bringe den delikate nyhed, at Al Gores Oscarbelønnede "dokumentar" An Inconvenient Truth har snuppet et computergeneret klip fra fremtidsthrilleren The Day After Tomorrow.

En scene, der angiveligt skal vise den antarktiske skrøbelige skønhed viser i virkeligheden et landskab, der er blevet skåret ud af styrofoam, også kaldet flamingo, fotograferet og derefter behandlet i en special-effects computer.



Al Gore's "traveling global warming show," the award-winning documentary "An Inconvenient Truth," includes a long flyover shot of majestic Antarctic ice shelves. But this shot was first seen in the 2004 blockbuster "The Day After Tomorrow." Sculpted from Styrofoam and later scanned into a computer, the ice shelf "flyover" looks real.

Karen Goulekas, the special effects supervisor for "The Day After Tomorrow" said the shot is a digital image. She was glad Al Gore used it in the documentary since "It is one hell of a shot." Both movies use the shot to convincingly portray global warming, but it is left to the audience to decide if this created image can both entertain and educate us about our changing planet.




Men hvad betyder lidt snyd hér og lidt fifleri dér, så længe det er i den gode sags tjeneste?

Det var jo også Al Gore, som opfandt Internet. :-D
