Gary Hutzel GALACTICA.TV interview

Source: Galactica TV

Noah Kadner had the chance to talk to Gary Hutzel, special effects supervisor on the Battlestar Galactica 2003 series. He talks about the digitalization of original Cylons, Raiders and Vipers for the webisodes and the upcoming Battlestar Galactica movie "Razor" and he granted us the very first exclusive images of his work to illustrate the interview. His credits as supervisor also include Spy Kids, Red Planet, Star Trek: DS9 and Star Trek: The Next Generation.

What lead to the decision to feature Cylon Raiders and Centurion designs from the 1970s version of Battlestar Galactica?

We're going back 40 years to the original Cylon war. We wanted to create a Centurion that would be like the original but be completely robotic. There was never a discussion about putting guys in suits. Pierre Drolet, our in house modeler designed that. Richard Livingston did illustrations for us and did a great job.
