Ten years ago, on 04/17/2010 Carl Macek passed away.

My condolences to his wife Svea and his family again.

We miss you, Carl.




Just for the thin blue line…

Nice memorial.

Carl Macek did have a talent for seeing commonalities and weaving a thread to connect stories and images. The three sages of Robotech are very thematically cohesive.

It is interesting to note within Episodes 1 to 36 Shoji Kawamori also found a talent for creating content where there seemingly was none. Under time and monetary constraints he created Episode 17 with mostly used footage. Episode 17 really condenses the essence and core plot of the entire arc of Episodes 1 to 36. In Flashback 2012 he once again discovered his own editing skills and created an epilogue for the series.

I see a certain similarity between these two men in seeing a vision and shaping the story.
