Douglas Trumbull's movie magic

"2001: A Space Odyssey"

Trumbull was in his early 20s when he worked as one of four special effects supervisors on Stanley Kubrick's 1968 masterwork.

"Silent Running"

Not only did Trumbull supply the effects for this cult 1972 environmental sci-fi classic, he also made his feature directorial debut on the film.

"Star Trek: The Motion Picture"

Trumbull and his staff had only five months to create all of the elaborate effects shots for the 1979 feature film — the first based on the 1966-69 sci-fi TV series.
