My close friends and colleagues Matthew and Rachel will be joining me on stage at the San Francisco Film Society on Tuesday next week for an update of our 2012 talk for The Art and Science of Lucasfilm Speaker Series. Please contact SFFS if you're interested in attending. (This event is likely full already, but there may be extra space).
More details here:
This yearlong series is a collaboration with San Francisco-based
legendary visual effects company Lucasfilm, now in its sixth year.
Several times a year, experienced professionals from the various
Lucasfilm divisions share their knowledge with Bay Area middle and high
school students in behind-the-scenes, interactive multimedia
presentations that demonstrate the intersection of art and science in
the entertainment industry. Each event includes time for discussion,
where students have the opportunity to ask questions of Lucasfilm
directors, supervisors, artists and engineers.
