Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull

[Paramount Pictures]

Indiana Jones teams up with the industrious Mutt Williams to find the Crystal Skull of Akator.

In an effort to keep with the themes and feeling of the original trilogy, ILM worked closely with director Steven Spielberg to capture the essence of the action-adventure genre: stunt work, special effects, and visual effects blended together seamlessly to facilitate the filmmaker’s vision.

The crew combined practical effects gags, digital matte paintings, advanced photomapping, CG animation, and large-scale miniatures to achieve the desired results.
