Starship Troopers

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.
