I still think they do the best work. Weta is of course geat, but as far as creatures, I still think ILM and Framestore do the best work.

Commence bashing...

I didn't know an adaptation was being made. I wonder if it will be set in mordern times? After Mask Attack and Sky Captain they wil have to come up with something quite original.

ILM still rule the roost.

And I believe this production of WOTW will ditch the Victorian setting for modern-day wherever-in-the-good'ol-USA...

yeah... uhhh... this is a surprize? hehe. FX-heavy Spielberg flicks always require the assistance of the big guns (ILM).

Not only the FX heavy, but most of his films "non-FX", including Amistad, Schindler's List, Saving Private Ryan and Empire of the Sun, though lately he has been turning to boutiques for the smaller projects like Asylum in CatchMe If You Can.

Re: Codenamejyn.

Of course - Phil Tippet pretty much made his name at ILM!

not bashing but are you forgetting gollum....the hulk or any of the creatures in the star wars movies...they are not better then gollum....I'm not putting them down by any means but people need to start looking at the talent not just the name....alot of people go with ILM because they are ILM....Weta needs to be looked at more so that they do more then just the movies for Peter Jackson...thats all I'm saying...

codenamejyn: Tippet Studios...yes...absolutely. From stop motion to GoMotion to the digital realm...I remember the journey...

idigm: Yes...Gollum was amazing. Definitley in a class by itself. The compositing for him was about even with the animation to me in the "wow" department. I think compositors are the unsung heros of the VFX world.

With ILM, I think the dinos of Jurassic Park still stand up well today, which is pretty amazing in the hi tech film industry. So does T2 and even the psuedo pod from the Abyss.
