A Star Wars Retrospective From Industrial Light & Magic: Environments, Space Battles, and the Characters Who Fought Them From 1977 to 2005

Tuesday, 2 August, 6 - 8 pm
Hall A

In 1977, George Lucas' "Star Wars" opened our eyes and blasted our senses with brave new worlds, remarkable characters, and operatic battles. In the five films that followed, these images continued to make cinematic history, taking us to places we never thought possible and blazing the trail for the visual effects and animation industry. In this presentation, Dennis Muren, John Knoll, Roger Guyett, and Rob Coleman walk us through all six installments in the series, comparing the techniques that ILM employed over the years to bring these historical environments, characters, and space battles to the screen.
