From the cover: “Bernard Wilkie calls on his long experience to deal comprehensively with a wide range of effects and techniques Apart from gunshots, explosions and fire, effects requirements include molten metal, rocks, snow, breaking bottles and crockery, seas, rain, swamps, knives and swords, even faces. Effects specialists need to know techniques for combining scenes from different sets, animation, models and miniatures, making corks pop and scenery collapse, creating a foggy night and making a car radiator boil. So Bernard Wilkie tells you about matte and glass shots, chroma-key, puppet construction, mirror shots, plastics fabrication and moulding, glass fibre lay-ups, mould-making, mixing and turning plaster, and so on.”
