ILM discussed, before an audience of 2,600, some of its most memorable images, ranging from models and miniatures to computer graphics and optical composites, to morphing and performance capture technologies – all of which have set the standards for visual effects. Hosted by Roy C. Anthony, senior product manager at Christie and production sessions chair at SIGGRAPH 2015, the presentation included ILM’s senior creative director Dennis Muren; visual effects supervisors Scott Farrar, Ben Snow, and Tim Alexander; animation supervisor Glen McIntosh and vice president of new media, Rob Bredow.

“In the 40 years since its founding by legendary filmmaker George Lucas, ILM has proven to be an innovative and productive company, driving the evolution of visual effects and playing a key role in more than 315 motion pictures, some of which have radically transformed the entertainment landscape,” notes Jeroen Schulte, Image Pipeline Engineer, Industrial Light & Magic. “This presentation is a celebration of the company’s diverse and groundbreaking accomplishments. It is also a tribute to the hundreds of creative visual effects pioneers who work behind-the-scenes at ILM currently and have throughout the years, all of whom are instrumental to our continued success.”
