Creating the Worlds of Star Wars: 365 Days Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

John Knoll was 14 years old when the first Star Wars film (Episode IV) came out in 1977, and it changed his life. By the time the first prequel, The Phantom Menace, was released in 1999, he was its visual effects supervisor—in charge of all special effects—a position he held through Episodes II (Attack of the Clones) and III (Revenge of the Sith). With Knoll as tour guide, this deluxe addition to Abrams 365 Days series provides the single most comprehensive collection of Star Wars images, including breathtaking 360-degree panoramic shots of sets and models, as well as concept art, props, film stills, and memorabilia.

The only book that covers all six films, Star Wars: 365 Days is Knolls spectacular survey of the visual world created by those films. It shows us George Lucas and his crew creating their universe on location and in the studio—in pages dense with imagery and information, documenting a remarkable sustained creative effort by hundreds of devoted filmmakers and craftsmen.

Book News Annotation:

Knoll saw the first Star Wars film in 1977, when he was 14 years old, and a couple decades later he wound up working on episodes I, II, and III as visual effects supervisor for Industrial Light & Magic. For Star Wars enthusiasts and others who want to know how it was done, this book looks at illusions created in all six films (through 2005). The author gives commentary on 365 scenes and enivronments, which are presented in 1,000 color photos of interior and exterior sets and models. The book is 9.5x6.5<"> and comes with a CD-ROM with photos and mini-videos.
Annotation 2005 Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)

Synopsis:
