ILM or Industrial Light & Magic, the people behind the most amazing visual effects in cinema history, has announced they are creating a television division.
Disney’s upcoming Star Wars streaming series, “The Mandalorian” and SYFY’s “Krypton” will be the unit’s first two projects.
The ILM TV team will be led by visual effects supervisors Hayden Jones and Jonathan Privett alongside executive producers Louise Hussey and Stefan Drury.
“It’s not often you get to create a new division at Industrial Light & Magic,” said Rob Bredow, executive creative director and head of ILM, “We are seeing a real convergence in our creative approach used on films and in our immersive entertainment division ILMxLAB, and now we’re proud to be able to offer these ILM innovations in a way that’s suitable for streaming and television work to creatives around the world.”
ILM is a unit of Lucasfilm Ltd., which is a subsidiary of The Walt Disney Company.
