Founded in April 1993 by James Cameron, Stan Winston and Scott Toss, Digital Domain is one of the front-runners in the world of visual special effects. The company's work featured heavily in "True Lies", "Interview with The Vampire", "Armageddon" and "Dante's Peak", all of which were successful at the box office. In 1995 they won a BAFTA award for their work on "Apollo 13", recalling a historic NASA space rescue without using a single frame of real archive. Then came an Oscar for their work on Cameron's "Titanic", one of the most expensive and most successful films ever made. The company also builds theme park systems: the T2-3D ride, based on James Cameron's cyborg hit "The Terminator", combines computer effects, projection systems and advanced 3D illusions. This book, written in a jargon-free style, looks at the company's work and should be of interest to all who are curious to learn how the amazing effects in contemporary blockbuster films are created by Oscar-winning talents at the forefront of their industry.
Tight binding, clear text on glossy art paper enhanced by many illustrations and photographs, most in full colour. The glossy silver-effect dust jacket is a little bumped along the top edge, otherwise in excellent condition. A very heavy book which requires courier delivery, hence the low purchase price.
In almost fine condition.
