'Pauline B. Rogers has compiled a series of in-depth interviews with artists who create superlative effects, from the first illusions in Star Wars to the latest magic in Titanic, Contact, Forrest Gump, Stuart Little and many more exciting projects. Together they explore how they created the first illusions and how they have built on their techniques. They discuss the changing role of the visual effects artist and how he/she fits into the director's plan, interacts with the cinematographer, and brings all the elements together from the first days of pre-production to the last days of post.'
