The Battleship VFX Interview

Chatting with ILM Wizards

By Robert T. Trate     August 27, 2012

Last week Mania's “The Geek Life” featured a trip to Industrial Light and Magic in San Francisco. This week Mania brings you an exclusive interview with two of the wizards at ILM. Grady Cofer and Pablo Helman are both VFX Supervisors who collectively have worked on Battleship, Avatar, Star Trek (2009), Attack of the Clones, Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull, Jarhead, Munich, and The Phantom Menace.
Sit back and enjoy a little discussion on recreating reality, a little Star Wars, and blowing stuff up on Battleship

I haven't (and won't) see Battleship,  but I guess from what I've heard, the only Special Effect that needs to be explained is how does Rihanna's hat NOT fall off?

Rob, for the life of me I don't know what's wrong. I've been trying to type the same compliment on your interview but the site does not post it. I've check and changed my language to make sure I'm not saying anything the software thinks is offensive but it still won't appear.

Anyway, I like your interview. You've got a developing on camera presence I'm looking forward to see more of.

I could listen to these guys talk all day. I loved the effects on the film, they did great work. Yeah the film is a bit cheesy but it is entertaining if you go in with the right attitude. Some people just get som offended with anything pro USA or military.
