When Battleship set sail earlier this summer, it showcased special effects unlike any we've ever seen. Movie Fanatic went to San Francisco to talk to the magicians behind the magic. We present the second of our two exclusive Battleship interviews from Industrial Light and Magic. The special effects house that George Lucas founded did masterful work on director Peter Berg’s bringing of a board game to the big screen. Glen McIntosh, ILM Animation Supervisor, and Willi Geiger, ILM CG Supervisor, take us exclusively inside the making of a special effects envelope-pusher.
First, we present a special exclusive where the magicians at ILM placed the Movie Fanatic into a scene from Battleship.
And now... our exclusive chat with McIntosh and Geiger, live from ILM!
Battleship starring Taylor Kitsch is out now on Blu-Ray and features hours of bonus features that showcase the creative genius of the ILM team that includes Geiger and McIntosh.
