US Cinema perfect-bound 8 x 9 in magazine printed on slick paper in similar format to a trade paperback. Published by Don Shay/Cinefex LLC. Editors John Duncan, others. 1980-current. Quarterly.
Cinefex grew largely out of publisher Shay's love for the films and visual effects work of Willis H O'Brien and over the years has remained a cornerstone magazine for those interested in state-of-the-art cinematic effects. It has published interviews with such notables as Rick Baker (1950- ), George Lucas and Michael Westmore (1938- ), together with virtually every major figure involved in designing special effects for films. Genres other than sf were covered; some selections of sf interest are Cocoon (1985), Jurassic Park (1993) and Terminator 2: Judgment Day (1991). The magazine is available as both a print edition and a Webzine. [GFi/DRL]
