ILM 2010 VFX Reel - title graphics
For the Industrial Light & Magic 2010 Siggraph electronic theater / company reel, I came up with the idea of creating a laboratory atmosphere. Myself and the editor shot footage looking up through a glass table of me assembling and disassembling mechanisms, using tools, etc... which I then edited into short sequences. I proceded to comp in fire, smoke, liquid, sparks, lights and other design elements to enrich the feel, and also created gears and machinery with a sort of macro look so I could do rack focus pops and shifts as transitions. There are many complex treatments to all the elements to create the glassy transparent look. I incorporated parts from actual movie shots to bridge the transitions.

Here are the finished transitions on their own (without the visual effects breakdowns for the ILM films). Sound design was by Skywalker Sound... 
Here are some stills from the final sequences...
