Watch a century of visual effects evolve in just three minutes

New, 12 comments

Jim Casey's three-minute-long tribute to visual effects in film is a vivid reminder of how the industry has advanced over the last 136 years. Set to Nobuo Uematsu's beautiful Liberi Fatali, the video begins with the stuttering zoetropes of the late 1880s and ends with some of the best examples of modern-day computer animation. While it's arguable if the clips showcased represent all the "great moments that changed visual effects,"  they do combine to make a wonderfully nostalgic walk through time.
