Movie Fanatic headed to San Francisco for a visit to the George Lucas-founded facility that is light years ahead of everyone else in the special effects world: Industrial Light and Magic (ILM). The team that made Star Wars a visual marvel has logged thousands of films since, and their unmatched talents are on display once again with Battleship. We've shown you Battleship behind the scenes, and now we talk to the men behind the magic.
Grady Cofer and Pablo Helman, ILM Visual Effects Supervisors for Battleship, sat down with us for an exclusive interview that informs our readers how the effects house has once again defied expectations, this time with their capturing the nuances of water that will permanently change how we see CG oceans.
Before we get to the interview, the folks at ILM did some green screen work with Movie Fanatic and placed us in a scene from Battleship. Check it out!
Without further ado, we now take you inside the vision of Industrial Light and Magic’s best and brightest. Battleship lands on Blu-Ray and DVD August 28.
