No CGI. It’s all practical work.
Something wonderful, if you took the long view, was about to happen.
If you took the short or medium view, something horrible was about to happen.
It’s like the difference between seeing a beautiful new star in the winter sky and actually being *close* to the supernova. It’s the difference between the beauty of morning dew on a cobweb and actually being a fly.
