When lights turn off in the cinema is when magic begins, but What is the process for creating these images? Who are the artists that make them possible?

For more than 40 years, ILM Industrial Light & Magic has created some of the most memorable moments in the history of modern cinema. From advances in the photochemical process to optical composition, motion control, digital sets, animation, motion capture to nowadays modern digital pipeline.

In this conference I would like to briefly tell you about the history of ILM and explain the preproduction process, from the moment the client comes to the studio with the idea, to the postproduction, going through all the departments involved in making possible the visual effects of the greatest cinematographic productions.

My professional career began as editor and tv camera in Sevilla and Huelva. Keen on editing, I realised that the tools included in the editing software were not enough to create the images I had seen on the films, so that is how I discovered digital composition. Twelve years later I am Senior Compositor and LookDev Artist in Industrial Light & Magic.

Taking the leap to London and starting my career in television commercials, series and independent films. Passing through Canada where I worked in companies such as MPC, Image Engine and ILM, where I was lucky enough to work in some of the great productions such as Godzilla, Warcraft or being part of the creative team of The Revenant bear sequence.

I am currently working in London at ILM after almost 5 years being part of projects like Star Wars The Last Jedi, Ready Player One, Avengers Infinity Wars among others and currently working on Star Wars The Rise of Skywalker.
