Abstract:


    For “Episode I,” the duties of the creature modelers at Industrial Light & Magic involved building the static models, either from scanned maquettes or by sculpting from scratch, building libraries of facial shapes and expressions for the talking creatures, and working with the envelopers responsible for the flexible skin models to sculpt corrective adjustments.
