http://www.filmsite.org/visualeffects.html 2000-2010 Landmarks in Video Effects Landmarks in Visual Effects Oh Brother, Where Art Thou? If you have seen this movie you might wonder what visual effects are in this movie.... I wondered myself.

This was the first feature film to be entirely color-corrected by digital means, giving the film a washed-out, sepia tone, to give the feeling of old or antique. 2000 1980-1999 E.T. - 1982

Many visual effects used to create scenes like
the famous flying bicycles. Breakthrough with a lot of movies during this decade.

Star Trek II ('82): First to use an entire sequence
Tron ('82): Used 20 minutes worth & back lighting
*First video 1:50-1:56 1940-1959 Animated Visual Effects In the 40's there was no computers to make animals talk or super heroes fly, animators had to do it. This frame is from the
1942 film Road to Morroco The Thief of Bagdad This movie was made in 1940 and used many
visual special effects to show the mystery and mystique of the movie. There were many examples of the great special effects of the movie; The giant genie, a majic carpet ride, flying horses, a six armed assasin, ect. Mighty Joe Young Made in 1949, this film used stop motion animation to make the giant ape move and seem life like. Each gesture and every movement had to be carefully done, this took a lot of time to complete. There were flaws to this type of animation though, in many scenes the scale was off a bit and Joe seemed to be changing size. Destination Moon Made in 1950, this was a pioneering science-fiction adventure film, with an ingenious use of models. The models consisted of the realistic moonscape, and the space ship to get them to the moon. Young Sherlock Holmes
first fully CGI photorealistic character ('85): Luxo Jr. ('86):
first fully CGI film

60 seconds of the filme took a week = 3yrs *0:27-0:34 Jurassic Park ('93) CGI milestone Forrest Gump ('94) Digitally composited interplay with historical events and people. (Ex: President Kennedy) The MAsk ('94) Combined live-action with cartoons in one frame. (Ex: Human face with cartoon eyes)
CGI human effects *1:01 -1:06 Babe ('95) Used computer effects to improve the look of animals talking. Toy Story ('95) First film to be made entirely by computer animation.
Pixar's first feature length film. Marvin the MArtian in the Thrid Dimension ('97) First movie to be viewed with 3D glasses The 1960's - 1980 The Birds Alfred Hitchcocks most expensive film to date was nominated for an Oscar in Best achivment in Special Effects.
