Inspiration, imagination, dedication, heaps of talent, and lots of pizza are just some of the ingredients necessary to turn a dream into reality. Last year, a group of brave artists from ILM launched a quest to start an animation studio and make the kind of movies they always loved to watch. One year later, Rob Coleman joins Jamy Wheless, John Helms, and Tim Naylor to share a sneak peek into their animated feature film, "The Fourth Magi."
