Differentiation through product design as well as packaging design has become a paramount arm in the fight for market share in consumer products markets and elsewhere. Mass customisation through finishing effects is considered a key to commercially successful designs. Rapid developments in technology as well as a host of new plastics coming on stream have enabled the plastics industry and those that use plastics in their products to realize dramatic product enhancements in terms of both aesthetics and functionality. This conference addressed the potential of special effects through presentations from leading companies.

Designed to trick the eye and stimulate the imagination, special effects have changed the way we look at films and the worlds created in them. Computer-generated imagery (CGI), as seen in Hollywood blockbusters like Star Wars, Terminator 2, Jurassic Park, Independence Day, Men in Black, and The Matrix, is just the latest advance in the evolution of special effects. Even as special effects have been marveled at by millions, this is the first investigation of their broader cultural reception. Moving from an exploration of nineteenth-century popular science and magic to the Hollywood science fiction cinema of our time, Special Effects examines the history, advancements, and connoisseurship of special effects, asking what makes certain types of cinematic effects special, why this matters, and for whom. Michele Pierson shows how popular science magazines, genre filmzines, and computer lifestyle magazines have articulated an aesthetic criticism of this emerging art form and have helped shape how these hugely popular on-screen technological wonders have been viewed by moviegoers.
