Sci-fi fans, get every Cinefex issue on your iPad
If you have any appreciation for the effects that have made many movies so thrilling, especially before computer graphics became the standard, you’ve probably flipped through Cinefex.
Since its launch in 1980, the much-lauded special- and visual-effects journal has explored everything from how AT-AT Walkers were animated for “The Empire Strikes Back” to the dinosaurs in “Jurassic Park” and Peter Parker’s alter ego in “Spider Man 3.”
Now, a Kickstarter campaign is offering 30 years of Cinefex editions for the iPad, including issues that are sold out and hard to get.
The Cinefex Classic Collection will feature eye-popping visuals and behind the scenes articles, searchable text, and interviews with Industrial Light & Magic effects wizards.
