From the Author
Industrial Light & Magic has created visual effects for hundreds of films, many of which are cultural and cinematic landmarks. From the fantastic creatures and otherworldly environments of the Star Wars universe to the astounding dinosaurs of 'Jurassic Park', from the raging waters of 'A Perfect Storm' and dramatic power of 'Twister' to the extraordinary characters of 'Pirates of the Caribbean' and 'Iron Man', the imagery created by ILM has fundamentally changed the face of filmmaking, and made it possible to tell stories and create visual experiences that could only have been dreamed of in the past. The goal for those who work at ILM has always been to find the most creative and effective way to realize the vision of a filmmaker - to bring to the screen an accurate representation of what the director has imagined. At ILM, pushing the envelope of what is possible both creatively and technologically, is a way of life.

The 3 books cover Foundation of ILM to the start of the digital realm
The digital realm & the art of FX.
A fourth book though not part of the seris is for me 'Inside the model shop' ,a companion to the other three.
Together the three books chart the rise of ILM to close to the Present day.
Highly recommended for Film buffs , modellers & those who just like this feild presented by people who love what they do & want to talk about it.
Since I love most everything about this book, I'll only point out the things I did not like so much:
1. They skipped some movies, such as Hulk, or Van Helsing, which is understandable, or else it would have gotten even thicker.
2. Some of the pictures are fuzzy or blurry. I expected razor-sharp images.
The rest is terrific, and I am very satisfied with my purchase!
Can't wait for the next one!
The down side: lack of behind-the-scene shots. Maybe that's classified info - in any case, you can get more from the internet.
A very good book to have in the collection, well written, well illustrated. Congratulations to the author and recommend buying.
