Super 8 Home Movies Of The Early Years At ILM

ILM Super 8 Home Movies (Images courtesy the Official Star Wars Blog)
By Andrew Liszewski

David Berry, an ‘ILMer’ who worked at the world renowned effects shop when it was just started back in the late 70’s has posted a great collection of behind-the-scenes super 8 home movies he shot while they were working on Star Wars. These days the effects industry is mostly driven by software, so it’s cool to see how shots were created and assembled before the advent of the render button. Not to mention the fact you’re watching people who completely revolutionized an industry and obviously had fun while doing it.

Unfortunately it doesn’t seem like I can embed the video here, so you’ll have to head over to Vimeo to check it out.

    Never really found my favorite filmmaker's top picks as interesting as the filmmakers own movies. Tarantino, Gilliam, Aranofsky all make good movies but the movies they like are either the obvious classics or seem lame and random.

    The Star Wars Original Trilogy was re-released in 1997 during its 30th Anniversary right? I was wondering if they used super8 converting machines to digitally remaster every shot in the movie.
