ILM BEHIND THE SCENES: A DIFFERENT KIND OF CHESS!


Soon-to-be stop-motion and monster creation legends Phil Tippett and Jon Berg are hard at work in bringing the Millennium Falcon's quirky and diverse holo chess board characters to life, in a beloved scene from the original STAR WARS. Though it was short when enjoyed on screen, the labour intensive sequence required much concentration to film, a bit difficult for the persevering duo to achieve when behind them at the Van Nuys warehouse, the ILM crew were having a loud, zany and likely very rowdy Wrap Party for completion of their effects work.

Here's a selection of great behind the scenes images of concepts (art by Tippett), selected models and filming. and selected models.
