Bryan Jones is one of the modern masters in the world of special effects. He worked on Prometheus, Terminator 2, The Lone Ranger. He is considered a god. A nice guy, passionate about his work. An interesting look behind the way special effects are done.

What Happened to Monday – Seven Sisters:  The out-of-control birth rate has forced governments to enact the drastic One-Child-Policy instituted by the Child Allocation Bureau, which is directed by Dr. Cayman, who has decreed that all children in excess must be hibernated. A woman dies giving birth to septuplet girls and, to save them all, their grandfather hides them and names them Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday, Friday, Saturday and Sunday. Each one of them may leave the house only on the day that corresponds to their name; they use the shared identity of Karen Settman and are forbidden from revealing their family secret. Hidden for six days a week, the seven sisters are only free to be themselves in the prison of the apartment in which they live. Everything goes smoothly until one day Monday doesn’t return home…
