Join the Industrial Light & Magic visual effects team as they take you behind the scenes of Tim Miller's Terminator: Dark Fate. From their early concept work right through to the finished product, this was a large project with a wide scope of effects — from air battles to underwater terminator fights and reimagining the liquid metal villain to name a few! The team drew inspiration from the classic 1991 film, Terminator 2: Judgment Day, which helped create the foundation of the effect for this new installment in the franchise. They will touch on many of the major challenging effects from the film and dig into digital characters, liquid metal FX development, conceptualizing the Rev-9 and much more!
