    ILM is now working on converting their vfx work on del Toro's Pacific Rim into 3D.

    This is the newest and one of the BEST ILM documentary out there today:



    It even has J.J. Abrams saying how Star Wars out did anything Star Trek would ever or could ever do!

    Watch it!

    That's actually a bit old. From 2009, IIRC. Still, it's a great doc.

    Is it the same one from the earlier DVD about using morphing or is it new?

    It's the same one from the DVD, but they have a new intro and outro from Dennis Muren.

    I just have to echo what a extraordinary team ILM has put together over the years, an inspirational and creative industry leader.

    My favourite films they've added their talent to are:
    • Back To The Future trilogy
    • The 'burbs
    • Die Hard 2
    • Forrest Gump
    • The Goonies
    • Indiana Jones
    • Last Action Hero
    • Mission Impossible
    • Rush Hour
    • Saving Private Ryan
    • Star Trek
    I could go on. Without ILM we simply would not have the groundbreaking films we know and love today.

    POTC as well-Jones' face alone was groundbreaking.

    Still the best CG humanoid character to date, IMHO.
