Celebrating 35 Years of ILM Magic

Wednesday, May 26th, 2010 | Posted by Leonard Teo

Wired Magazine has published a feature celebrating 35 years of Industrial Light & Magic. Arguably one of the most innovative visual effects studios of our time, ILM has contributed much this industry and inspired generations of visual artists.

Quote: Hollywood’s penchant for visual wizardry goes back to black-and-white classics like The Thief of Bagdad and Metropolis, but no single f/x house has lent more reality to make-believe than George Lucas’ Industrial Light & Magic. What started out as a ragtag cluster of artists cobbling together an epic space adventure has matured into a 15-time Oscar winner with some 250 film credits—the most recent being this summer’s Iron Man 2. To celebrate 35 years of ILM, let’s take a look back at some moments that have—ahem—”forced” their way into cinematic legend.

    Imagine being in a theater 35 years ago for a film with the first special effects done by ILM and the first sound done by THX. That’s part of what made Star Wars so awesome.
