The Magic of Special Effects

A 1984 documentary on special effects for “Indiana Jones and the Temple of Doom”, “Explorers”, “Return of the Jedi”, and “2010”. The section in particular on how they did the 150 ships battle scene in Jedi shows just how much manual work went into the shot (it took months). Also Dennis Muren of ILM and others walk us through the mine car chase sequence in the movie Temple Of Doom .
