This stunning volume presents the story of the organisation whose name has become synonymous with state-of-the-art special effects - Industrial Light & Magic. It examines its early days to its Oscar-winning accomplishments for films such as the "Star Wars" trilogy, "Raiders of the Lost Ark", Back to the Future", the "Star Trek" films and "Cocoon". The book takes a behind the scenes look at the special effects process, from cinematic design, matte painting, model construction and creature development to miniature photography and optical compositing. It also discusses the invention of new cameras, lenses and other technological devices.
A very heavy book which necessitates courier delivery.
Packed with fascinating detail, amazing illustrations, film posters and artwork, this book, although moderately foxed on the upper edge of the text block, is in excellent condition, with colourful glossy dust jacket to complement the brightly vivid illustrations within.
