ILM is making it official. DNEG TV alum Hayden Jones and Jonathan Privett, along with their production team, are launching ILM TV.

First projects are The Mandlorian and the second season of SyFy's Krypton.

I made a correction to their story, where they claim YOUNG INDY was the first use of feature-level VFX on episodic TV. Pointed out ILM's TNG pilot work and original BSG preceded that.

They obviously also did Agent Carter recently but BSG?? I know everyone on the show was ILM but that was surely after they closed their doors having finished A New Hope and Apogee strung up out of their ashes! 😁

Yeah BSG was Apogee and post-Van Nuys ILM so it was this weird in-between era when the crew was virtually the same as the ILM Star Wars one but George didn't fund it as an ILM show. You could call it an unofficial-ILM show or a proto-Apogee one. :lol:

After that, Muren, Edlund, etc moved up to Marin.

I thought the Apogee name didn't come up till ALTERED STATES, but yeah, it was the Apogee group plus the keys from ILM who then went north. T

hat's a particular story point in my script on the formation of ILM that focuses on this, since Edlund telling Dykstra he isn't staying down there is kind of a cleaving moment. I'm thinking it could play like the end of a western where the compatriots head their separate ways, but then again, I think of almost everything in terms of westerns ...

Muren felt his BSG work was some of the best stuff yet, better than a lot of SW in terms of moves (he shot that thing where the three cylon raiders do a little flip as they go away descending toward the planet.)
