Even though I post on Facebook nearly every day, it’s been a while since I’ve blogged “formally,” but I felt this topic was important enough for me to shake the cobwebs and reactive the blog.


This inspiring project is about a man name Caroll Spinney, who is known to most of us through his characters Big Bird and Oscar the Grouch.


I had the honor, privilege, and pleasure of meeting Caroll last...

“Their imperfect record at awards shows was disappointing, sure, but the best prize of all came when, on February 4, 1986, President Ronald Reagan name-checked and quoted directly from the movie—where we’re going, we don’t need roads—in his State of the Union address.”
Caseen Gaines, We Don't Need Roads: The Making of the Back to the Future Trilogy

“There have been several attempts to create functioning hoverboards, some of which have been reported about in internationally renowned news outlets like the New York Times, but it seems that true hoverboarding like Marty does on film is not going to become a reality anytime soon.”
Caseen Gaines, We Don't Need Roads: The Making of the Back to the Future Trilogy

“In watching any of the hoverboard sequences, especially the extended ones like the chase in the Hill Valley square and the tunnel where Biff is trying to reclaim the sports almanac, one can see that a mixture of techniques were used. In some cases, the effects that appear amazing on-screen were really quite low-tech. Thin metal wire legs were placed right in the middle of the underside of some Styrofoam props, so that when Michael J. Fox threw them down, they would wobble as if levitating. In shots where one end of the board was out of frame, the other side was sometimes held by a crew member until Fox grabbed it and tucked it under his arm. When the actors’ feet were obscured, they were often shot from the waist up and put on actual skateboards. Sometimes they were pulled on a large dolly. Large sheets of plywood would be added to the ground in order to create additional height in comparison with the rest of what was in the frame.”
