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.

The breakthrough work resulting in an Academy Award® nomination for Best Visual Effects and BAFTA Award nomination for Best Special Visual Effects.
