Submitter: Here’s a nice book on movie special effects. From 1998. A few things have changed in the last 20 years in this particular topic. Animatronics and puppets are prominently covered, with a couple pages tacked on at the end to cover the newest upcoming trend—digital effects! Wow! Maybe it’s time for an updated title.
Holly: All the examples featured in this book are also, of course, 20 years old. The methods used for the special effects in recent movies and TV shows (Star Wars, Game of Thrones, Guardians of the Galaxy…) make the ones featured in this book look pretty primitive. Planet of the Apes is a whole new animal. #punintended
