For tonight’s History Channel documentary “Life Without People,” Eden FX co-founder and visual effects producer John Gross was charged with creating some pretty amazing scenes of aging and disintegrating world landmarks. With the aid of engineers, Mr. Gross had to envision what condition cities would be in as their infrastructures crumbled hundreds of years after the last human walked the earth. “It’s not every day you get to topple the Seattle Space Needle, burst the Hoover Dam or age the Lincoln Memorial,” says Mr. Gross, whose company created the aged Chicago and the collapse of the deteriorated Sears Tower pictured here.
