Award winning Visual Effects studio Industry Light & Magic, founded by George Lucas in 1975, will feature in a very special screening at this year's FMX. Director Leslie Iwerks and ILM veteran's Tim Alexander, Ben Snow and Hal Hickel will present the documentary, "Industrial Light & Magic: Creating The Impossible". For the past 35 years ILM has been responsible for some of the most memorable effects in film history, including the Star Wars, Jurassic Park, Pirates of the Caribbean, Iron Man, Harry Potter and Transformers Trilogies, Avatar, Star Trek, and recently their first animated feature, Rango.

Directed by Leslie Iwerks of the Pixar documentary, "The Pixar Story". Industry Light & Magic: Creating the Impossible takes audiences behind the scenes with in dept interviews with some of the companies' top talent, including George Lucas, Steven Spielberg, Ron Howard, J.J. Abrams and Jon Favreau, actors Samuel L. Jackson and Robin Williams, producer Jerry Bruckheimer and John Lasseter, the chief creative officer at Walt Disney and Pixar Animation Studios.

Iwerks' documentary showcases never before seen footage highlighting many of their pioneering milestones. From creating the first ever computer generated character in a feature film to the latest advancements in visual effects for film franchises such as Transformers and Iron Man.

DreamWorks Participation
FMX is pleased to announce DreamWorks Animation's participation in this year's conference. Philippe Denis and Philippe Gluckman will present in-depth sessions about the feature animation pipelines in both California and India.
Production is altering how the industry works, allowing for continuous work-flow, distributed workplaces and co-financing. DreamWorks Animation is one of a few prominent studios who have already established a presence in India. Building on the large talent pool that already exists in India, DreamWorks Animation in association with Technicolor have set up the DreamWorks Dedicated Unit at Technicolor India. The unit, which has developed a unique work-flow process, will work exclusively on projects and features from DreamWorks Animation.
The DreamWorks Animation recruitment team will be on the look out for exciting talent at FMX this year for the DreamWorks Dedicated Unit at Technicolor India in Bangalore as well as both the California studio locations.
