Blank Check with Griffin and David Wiki

Talking the Walk is an annual feature wherein J.D. Amato appears on the podcast to talk about frame rates and digital effects.

Origins[]

In the Billy Lynn's Long Halftime Walk episode, J.D. "talks the walk" referring to the titular walk. In the episode, J.D. talks largely about high frame rate and the technical prowess involved in making the film. He returned in 2019 around the release of Gemini Man to talk again about high frame rate while taking a literal walk with Griffin and David in New York City. The third installment is about the film The Walk, primarily because of the name of the film includes the word "walk."

Secret Podcast[]

In the 2020 episode on The Walk, J.D. read a series of riddles. The solutions to the riddles combined to reveal the location of a secret interview recorded with Kevin Baillie, the visual effects supervisor for The Walk. At the time the main feed episode was recorded, neither Griffin nor David had any knowledge of the interview. Blankies on reddit found the location and password, however some of the specifics of the riddles have yet to be documented.[1]
