“The Art of Visual Effects hosted by Willi Geiger, Computer Graphics Supervisor, Industrial Light + Magic, (California USA)
A must-see event for all VFX film fans, the opening night of BFX will feature a behind-the-scenes look at some of the world’s most spectacular movies. Hosted by Willi Geiger from Academy Award-winning visual effects studio Industrial Light + Magic the evening will take you on an inspiring journey like never before. Starting with ILM’s founding by George Lucas to make the original Star Wars; the early years dominated by models, miniatures, motion-controlled cameras and optical compositing (Star Wars, Indiana Jones, E.T.); the transition to CGI and digital compositing in the early 1990s; and the last decade of innovation illustrated by a compilation of our best work showcased in the SIGGRAPH Electronic Theatre; the showcase will finish with Rango, so far ILM’s only venture into feature animation. Followed by a Q&A session & screening.
