Behind the scenes – The Magic of Visual Effects

TRANSFORMERS The Ride enlisted the award-winning Industrial Light & Magic (ILM), a division of Lucasfilm Ltd., which created the visual effects for the movie franchise, to produce ground-breaking visionary special effects and 3-D images exclusively for the ride.

ILM has worked on nearly 300 feature films since its formation in 1975, including the TRANSFORMERS movies, Harry Potter, Jurassic Park as well as all four of the Indiana Jones films and all six of the Star Wars episodes.

ILM Singapore started in 2006 and has worked as a integrated unit with ILM San Francisco on such projects as the TRANSFORMERS franchise, Star Trek, Terminator: Salvation, Harry Potter and the Half Blood Prince.

We found out more about the attraction from Jeff White, visual effects supervisor at ILM.
