"It's so exciting that ILM will be marking their 40th anniversary with VIEW this year," says Professor Maria Elena Gutierrez, Director of the annual conference. "Their two special sessions are guaranteed to draw standing room only crowds at this year's conference!"

The ILM Sessions are:

** "ILM - 40 Years of Creating the Impossible" 
Wed, October 21st - 6 to 7.30pm 

For 40 years, Industrial Light & Magic (ILM) has set the standard for visual effects, creating some of the most memorable images in the history of modern cinema. From advances in the photo-chemical process, optical compositing, motion control, and models and miniatures, to the company's pioneering efforts in computer graphics, digital compositing, film scanning and recording, morphing, digital environments, performance capture, character animation and modern digital pipelines, ILM consistently breaks new ground in visual effects for film, television, themed attractions, and new forms of entertainment. In this VIEW session, the presenters will discuss the company's work from its earliest days and breakthroughs along the way.

Speakers:
Ben Snow, Visual Effects Supervisor
Tim Alexander, Visual Effects Supervisor
Lorne Peterson, ILM Modelshop Supervisor

** "The Park is Open: Journey to 'Jurassic World' with Industrial Light & Magic"
Friday, October 23rd -  12:15 to 1:15pm 

In 1993, ILM brought living, breathing dinosaurs back from extinction - a move that would help shape the future of cinema itself. Steeped in the "Jurassic" franchise, the ILM panelists at VIEW will share the advanced on-set visualization tools used during production and the new visual effects techniques developed for modeling and texturing, environment creation, and advanced motion capture retargeting technology that allowed ILM to breathe life into "Jurassic World," the latest installment directed by Colin Trevorrow.  

Speakers:
Tim Alexander, Overall Visual Effects Supervisor 
Glen McIntosh, Animation Supervisor
