ILM on YouTube

So a friend and I were just talking about the guests from Industrial Light and Magic we having coming to the school on 24th of this month and we got onto the subject of visual effects. This isn’t surprising since our esteemed guests are wizards in visual effects, but i digress. Anyway, he was telling me how he is subscribed to ILM’s official behind the scenes channel on YouTube. This… REALLY surprised me since I love watching the behind the scenes features on DVD’s and whatnot. I had no idea that this page existed and it makes me super happy that I can now look behind the scenes of these amazing films. Thanks Davain!
