A robot army marches through a city destroyed by aliens. A famous movie star morphs into a hideous fantasy creature. And a cute pink triceratops sets off on a big adventure with a blue T. rex. Creating animations and incredible visual effects is all in a day's work for a CGI (computer-generated imagery) artist. Readers will discover how CGI artists use creativity, computer skills, and the latest technology to produce the characters, landscapes, and effects we love to see in movies and TV shows. Told in a lively narrative style, this book includes firsthand accounts of how CGI effects are created, entertaining anecdotes, cool facts, and fascinating behind-the-scenes images. Readers will also get the chance to try their hand at being a CGI artist with fun projects and activities.

School Library Journal Review for Astronaut, Creating Visual Effects for Movies as a CGI Artist, Inventors, and Master Blasters

Though slim, each title provides enough background on its topic to give students a decent grasp on prospective job opportunities. The majority of the text focuses on current events and developments within the field (e.g., astronaut Scott Kelly’s historic year in space in Astronaut) but does backtrack to offer a general overview. Concluding “Get to Work” sections encourage kids to study the relevant subject areas and perform an experiment or action that mirrors what an actual inventor, CGI artist, etc., would do. The bright photos and up-to-date text make these fine selections for career collections.
