Alumnus Jim Rygiel's VFX for Godzilla

Visual effects pioneer, alumnus Jim Rygiel ('86), who won three Oscars for the Lord of the RIngs trilogy, supervised visual effects for Godzilla. Sixty years ago, Japanese audiences thrilled to the film debut of a massive monster that ravaged Tokyo with atomic breath, armored plates and a name that combined the Japanese words for "gorilla" and "whale": Gojira. Rygiel's team reinvented the famous Japanese monster using contemporary CG tools.
