The Effects of Special Effects
This conclusion considers the larger set of changes confronting cinema and its siblings at this juncture between the analog and digital eras. Restating the book’s central argument that special effects play a central role in negotiating this transition, the conclusion argues in addition that many of these behaviors pass beneath conscious observation, in an ideological effect unique to engineered spectacle. In addition to noting areas the book wasn’t able to touch on for reasons of length, the conclusion discusses questions for further study, sketching a foundation for special-effects scholarship that attends both to their industrial and discursive dimensions as they forge a transmedia landscape.
