Special Effects Studio Mirada Shows Off Their Work on Pacific Rim

And I'll Form the Head!

Recommended Videos

The majority of Pacific Rim‘s illusions were created by Industrial Light & Magic, but not, notably the pre-credits portion of the film. The prologue, in which Raleigh narrates the first decade or two of the human/kaiju conflict, features lots and lots of kaiju, jaegers, and related destruction, no two of which could be the same, and all of which had to fit a standard of realism to be taken as news footage. Pretty impressive stuff.

Susana Polo thought she'd get her Creative Writing degree from Oberlin, work a crap job, and fake it until she made it into comics. Instead she stumbled into a great job: founding and running this very website (she's Editor at Large now, very fancy). She's spoken at events like Geek Girl Con, New York Comic Con, and Comic Book City Con, wants to get a Batwoman tattoo and write a graphic novel, and one of her canine teeth is in backwards.
