White Room Artifacts, LLC was established by former ILM model makers Don and Anna Bies for the specific purpose of designing and building traveling exhibitions, high fidelity artifacts and multimedia components. Additionally, we are a full service Visual Effects company, capable of handling any effect or idea from conceptualization and design through building, production and final delivery.
Crucial to its success is the team of highly experienced artists and technicians, some of whom comprised the original model shop at ILM since 1975. The remainder of the team have worked at ILM for over twenty years, including working for Kerner Optical when it was established in 2006.
Collectively, they have been responsible for many of the Academy Award winning visual effects of the biggest blockbusters in the last three decades, including STAR WARS, INDIANA JONES, STAR TREK, BACK TO THE FUTURE, MATRIX, and PIRATES OF THE CARIBBEAN film series.
