Theme: SIGGRAPH Core

From monster-ravaged streets to the not-so-friendly skies. Tippett Studios demonstrates the evolution of their "Cloverfield" monster, from tactical shot designs that obscured the bulk of the creature to transforming a multi-camera, hand-held shoot into a stunning final reveal. Then, Industrial Light & Magic unveils Tony Stark's lair, the complexities of building an ironman, and how they swapped metal for pixels, rigging, animating, and lighting, before taking him to the skies in "Iron Man."
