What kind of techniques would have been used for this? Is it some kind of back projection with wire-work? I'm not very knowledgeable on VFX so I don't really have a clue.
I'm just watching it on TV in the UK so have no idea what version it is but it looks quite clean so I imagine it is some sort of digital transfer, I'm not sure if this would have helped the effects look less dated.

I’d really love to learn more, especially about practical effects, yet have focused most of my film learning to date on areas more directly related to camera assisting.
If I was to start exploring and understanding the visual effects world though, is that book - "The Technique of Special Effects Cinematography" - the best to start learning from? I've heard of it previously and it seemingly has the reputation as being a bit of a tome for this subject area! At $120 though I want to make sure it’s worth the purchase. Is it hugely technical or is it fairly accessible not family with the VFX already?
I understand that some of the techniques may have been superseded but love practical effects and want to know how films have been made in the past just as much as I want to learn about techniques and the use of CGI over practical.
