A robot army marches through a city destroyed by aliens. A famous movie star morphs into a hideous fantasy creature. And a cute pink triceratops sets off on a big adventure with a blue T. rex. Creating animations and incredible visual effects is all in a day’s work for a CGI (computer-generated imagery) artist. Readers will discover how CGI artists use creativity, computer skills, and the latest technology to produce the characters, landscapes, and effects we love to see in movies and TV shows. Told in a lively narrative style, this book includes firsthand accounts of how CGI effects are created, entertaining anecdotes, cool facts, and fascinating behind-the-scenes images. Readers will also get the chance to try their hand at being a CGI artist with fun projects and activities.
