In 1999 I was asked to write a brief overview of the history of the Visual Effects industry for the Hollywood publication, CinemaGap.  This lead to a fascination with the history of Computer Graphics, Special and Visual Effects along with some aspects of Film and Animation.  


Below are links to my presentation,  20 years of research and hard work, and what I believe to be one of the most complete histories of the industry in one place on the internet.


And I'm making it available free for you to enjoy. 

Update - In the first two weeks of release over 54,000 people have shown an interest in this project, thank you for all the great comments, suggestions and corrections...
