Summary "Hollywood special effects offer spectacular creations or re-creations that make claims to our attention on the grounds of their 'incredible seeming reality'. They can appear both 'incredible' and 'real', their appeal based on their ability to 'convince' - to appear real in terms such as detail and texture - and on their status as fabricated spectacle, to be admired as such." "This collection explores a number of issues emerging from these conjuctures between 'spectacle' and the 'real'."--BOOK JACKET.
