Movie Magic [electronic resource]: Using Special Effects

Multimedia Group of Canada
Format
Video; Computer Resource; Online Video; Online
Summary
Aside from taking an audience's breath away, special effects are often used simply for logistical reasons, such as when an actor or actress is unavailable for a shoot and must be woven into the scene later. In this program, experts in the field of special effects discuss how they create images that range from the spectacular to the invisible. Postproduction specialists discuss and demonstrate techniques of overlaying computer animation and digitizing 35mm and 65mm film. The cinematic applications of prosthetics, animatronics, and pyrotechnics are also closely examined. Contains nudity.
