The Art of Technology at ILM Singapore

Presented in English / 영어로 발표 됨

Industrial Light & Magic (ILM) is one of the world’s leading visual effects houses. It has been awarded 15 Academy Awards for Best Visual Effects, 23 Scientific and Technical Achievement Awards, and the National Medal of Technology, by the President of the United States.

In 2006, George Lucas’ world-renowned visual effects studio expanded its operations beyond its San Francisco headquarters, opening a studio in Singapore. The Singapore division of ILM is a full-service effects studio responsible for delivering complete shots and sequences on top-tier Hollywood projects. From asset development and digital-matte painting, through animation, creature, and effects simulation, to lighting and compositing, ILM Singapore delivers cutting-edge work for feature films. At the Singapore studio, ILM veterans work alongside top-level talent from around the world.

ILM Singapore leverages the expertise and technological know-how developed over 35 years at Industrial Light & Magic. Knowledge and culture flow freely between the two locations via daily video conferences, visits from San Francisco-based supervisors, and integration of key ILM Singapore artists with the teams in California to receive training in the latest techniques. Tools and workflow at ILM Singapore are identical to those in San Francisco, allowing for seamless collaboration on all aspects of projects.

This talk explores how ILM has been able to remain at the forefront of the film industry by focusing on artistry and pioneering technology. From developing proprietary software to investing in employee training, ILM continues to set the gold standard for production management while producing awe-inspiring imagery for audiences worldwide.
