Paul Verhoeven’s sci-fi opus represented a watershed moment for Tippett Studio,
…marking the graduation from a small group of twenty artists to a studio of two hundred VFX professionals.
Making the leap required the development of new technologies and techniques, adapting rapidly to a hungry new world that demanded more and more effects.
This oft-misunderstood classic contains over two hundred visual effects shots, a significant increase over the norm at the time.
Phil Tippett received an Oscar nomination for the trailblazing work.
