Featuring more than 360 entries, this comprehensive A to Z survey unveils the latest techniques and gadgetry used to create some of the cinema's most spectacular effects, the geniuses who bring the magic to the big screen, and the films that have won Academy Awards for their special effects or have contributed significantly to the development of the art. The volume also covers more than 120 familiar and lesser-known experts whose techniques and studios have led to great strides being made in special effects. Three appendices - listing Academy Award winners and nominees for special effects from 1939 to 1998, special effects magazines, and special effects houses - offer additional insight into this fascinating topic.
