1976 - A Black Hole. Special effect from one of my early movies. Made by placing an upside down bowl on a piece of black velvet, then sprinkling around the bowl with flour and hitting the velvet with a strong light. This is actually a poor image - the one in the movie looks like brilliant white-hot stars against a pitch black background as the camera slowly zooms into the center. Keep in mind, this was before computers and CG - everything had to be mechanically created.
