Carli Friedea's insight:

At the exhibition besides learning some of the techniques used to create the movies, visitors can also experience entering the movies by trying a green screen that puts them side by side with the main characters of Star Wars.

In addition, visitors will find a projection room featuring a documentary on 30 Years of Visual Effects, which reveals just how far this art has come. Optical illusions, picture overlays, pyrotechnics, stunt tricks, and other visual and special effects are also explained in relation to the Star Wars films.

Carli Friedea's insight:

The effects teams started by building its own motion control camera called the Dykstraflex, which allowed for very precise and repeatable camera movements. This system helped them film several elements, such as miniatures and matte paintings, and later combine them into a single shot. Many of these original ship models are found in the exhibition.

With its many technical and creative innovations, ILM has helped drive the evolution of visual effects. Beginning with a mastery of bluescreen photography, matte painting, and model construction, ILM also pioneered the development of motion control cameras, optical compositing, and digital moviemaking.
