The Effects in the Tree of Life

Here's a nice little blog post with clips and quotes about the effects done in the creation scenes for Terrence Malick's Tree of Life. My favorite quote is about how some natural images look too perfect and they have to mess it up a little to make it look authentic:

“There are images of Saturn where, when you work with the pristine, beautiful, original material, it actually looks so clean, you couldn’t put it on the screen without people thinking it’s just CG,” Mr. Glass said. “And so we had to add in tiny subtle textual details.” They separated out the moons around Saturn and added texture.

Maybe those are like beauty marks they added?
