Creating Digital Corpses for "The Mummy"
Industrial Light & Magic was given the task of bringing the title character to life in various stages of reincarnation, from walking skeleton to full human form and all the steps along the way. The key challenge required digital recreation of an actor, inside and out, that had the look and performance of real human bone, tissue, skin, and body mechanics.

The Haunting -- Select Visual Effects
This sketch analyzed two scenes from "The Haunting." In one scene, the heroine combs her hair in front of a mirror and watches in horror as her hair takes on a life of its own. In the second scene, the sleeping heroine drifts into sleep in a giant antique bed as a ghost child enters through the window.
