Industrial Light & Magic: The Art of Innovation is an extensively illustrated oral history of the multiple–Academy Award-winning visual effects company founded by George Lucas in 1975. Its tale begins with a small team of craftspeople, engineers, and artists who pioneered analog effects for Star Wars that had never before been attempted or realized on the screen. Industrial Light & Magic continues their story through the effects facility's work over the following three decades on more than three hundred films - from optical printing to the digital and computer generated effects era. A behind-the-scenes record of the state-of-the-art innovations that have driven moviemaking magic, the book features candid stories from the filmmakers, artists, and technicians who were breaking barriers and changing the history of cinema with their early work on cultural landmarks, such as the Star Wars saga, the Indiana Jones series, E.T., Terminator 2: Judgment Day, and Jurassic Park.
