The Mask

[New Line Cinema/Dark Horse Entertainment]

1995 Academy Award® nominee for Best Visual Effects.

1995 BAFTA Award nominee for Best Special Visual Effects.

No one had attempted the Tex-Avery style animation with 3D graphics in a live-action film before The Mask. ILM’s eye-popping effects spin actor Jim Carrey into a human cartoon. By mixing these extreme effects into the live action footage, ILM redefined any preconceived notions of what filmmakers could do to move a compelling narrative forward.
