Louis Katz Shows ILM's Funny Side

by malducin

Louis Katz has posted on his personal site two hilarious clips dealing with the productions of Sleepy Hollow, where the Headless Horseman looks for his head inside ILM, and Spawn, which spoofs the dailies review process.

On the Sleepy Hollow clip you can see the Headless Horseman relentlessly searching for his head in the old San Rafael ILM campus. Many of the crew members and others can be seen in the clip, including VFX Supervisors Jim Mitchell, Dennis Muren and Christophe Hery and former ILM President Jim Morris, among others. The Spawn spoof is an animated clip and parodies George Lucas, Stefen Fangmeier and Steve "Spaz" Williams. You can watch them here:
