We are very proud to have one of the leading effects companies in the world at Playgrounds Festival. For over thirty years Industrial Light and Magic (a division of Lucasfilm Ltd.) has set the standard for visual effects.

They have created some of the most stunning images in the history of film. ILM has created visual effects for nearly 300 feature films. From the earliest creation of wholly computer-generated characters in The Abyss, Terminator 2 and Jurassic Park; to life-like distortions of the human body in Death Becomes Her and The Mask; to the startling breakthroughs in films such as Twister, Star Wars The Phantom Menace, The Perfect Storm and Pirates of the Carribean. When you look at the top 15 worldwide box office hits of all time, ILM has played a key role in 10 of them. At the forefront of the digital revolution, ILM continues to break new ground in visual effects.
