Video shows how Blood and Chrome recreated BSG sets using "90 percent greenscreen"

Check out a behind-the-scenes look at the Battlestar Galactica prequel Blood & Chrome, exclusively on io9.

Check out how they built future world ski resorts and massive spaceships from nothing.


If you want to catch up on the series, here are the first four episodes — featuring Young Adama fighting Toasters. We missed hearing people saying "frak"...

Episode 1

Episode 2

How can anyone think this is a good idea after Star Wars prequels? Except for very picturesque movies like Sin City it just doesn't work.
