Synopsis:

Illustrating that the history of special effects is a long and varied one and much more than images of sleek starfighters or CG raptors this fascinating account documents the incredible advances made in creating realistic special effects for film over the decades. From the barely concealed wires on Douglas Fairbanks’ flying carpet in The Thief of Baghdad, to groundbreaking effects for the Lord of the Rings trilogy, this incisive guide showcases how the industry has been manufacturing new and cutting edge ways to fuel viewers’ imaginations. Beautifully designed with a pictorial history of the special effects industry, with in-depth analyses of the varied techniques of audio and visual effects, and packed with more than 500 color illustrations taken from iconic movies and personal portfolios of the experts in the field, this remarkable manual is an essential resource for fans of filmmaking, and anyone looking to build a career in this fast-paced and revolutionary industry.

About the Author: Richard Rickitt is an author, a filmmaker, and teaches filmmaking and film history at the British Film Institute.
