This site was set up to accompany each stage in the development of a new collection of essays on special/visual effects in moving image media, provisionally entitled Special Effects: New Histories, Theories, Contexts. As the project gathers contributors and progresses towards and beyond publication, we will use this blog for updates, appendices and additional information that will expand the reach of the text beyond the pages of the book. We welcome any comments or contributions, including from those who are not involved in the book itself. In particular, we are looking to build up a bibliography of books, articles, web pages and other useful resources related to the study of special and visual effects.
The editors of the book and blog are:
- Michael Duffy
- Bob Rehak
- Dan North
