Watch a Visual Effects Breakdown of The Bombing Run in STAR WARS: THE LAST JEDI
Industrial Light and Magic has released an awesome "Behind the Magic" featurette that breaks down the visual effects of the Bombing Run scene from Star Wars: The Last Jedi. In case you need a reminder, this is the opening scene of the film where the Resistance is trying to hold off First Order fighters while the Resistance bombers move in to blow up the massive Dreadnought.
This video shows us how the Oscar-nominated team at ILM awesomely crafted this exciting scene by combining CGI with live footage that was shot on the set of the film using green screen. I love watching videos like this! The creative and technical process behind bringing these films to life has always fascinated me.
