Last night the Academy of Motion Pictures Arts and Sciences hosted a presentation contrasting the analog technologies developed for the first Star Wars film released in 1977 with the all-digital toolsets used to create Rogue One: A Star Wars Story released in 2016.
Key contributors from both STAR WARS and ROGUE ONE will share the journey of creating the impossible with their breakthrough visual effects. Our list of stellar participants includes: John Dykstra, Dennis Muren, John Knoll, Ben Burtt, Marcia Lucas, Bill George, Harrison Ellenshaw, Bruce Nicholson, Richard Edlund and Rachel Rose. Hosted by Kiri Hart, co-producer of ROGUE ONE, this event promises to be both inspiring and insightful.
You can watch the livestream now, for the next 48 hours only.
