Reply to "be made "ing""

I assume in the passive one - "The movie was made using a lot of special effect" there happens 'misrelated participles' because the subject of the main clause and the implied subject of the participle clause do not match.

I don't think that David implied that "using a lot of special effects" was a dangling participle when he stated:

As for the passivized version ("The movie was made using a lot of special effect"), I parse "using a lot of special effects" as an participial adverbial adjunct modifying "was made."
