ILM to Celebrate 40th Anniversary With Sessions at View Conference

Industrial Light & Magic will celebrate its 40th anniversary by presenting two special sessions at the 2015 View Conference in Turin, Italy.

Visual effects supervisors Ben Snow and Tim Alexander and ILM Modelshop supervisor Lorne Peterson will take part in a presentation called ILM — 40 Years of Creating the Impossible, charting the history of the company that was founded by George Lucas in 1975 when he started production on “Star Wars.” The session will be held on Oct. 21 from 6 to 7:30 p.m.

Alexander will join animation supervisor Glen McIntosh on Oct. 23 from 12:15 to 1:15 p.m. to talk specifically about the company’s work on the summer blockbuster “Jurassic World.” The session, titled The Park Is Open: Journey to “Jurassic World” With Industrial Light & Magic, will chart the evolution of ILM’s work throughout the franchise.

“It’s so exciting that ILM will be marking their 40th anniversary with View this year,” says conference director Maria Elena Gutierrez. “Their two special sessions are guaranteed to draw standing room only crowds.”

The View conference runs Oct. 19-23, bringing together professionals for the latest trends in computer graphics, interactive techniques, digital cinema, 2D and 3D animation, gaming and visual effects.
