About the event
ABOUT OUR SPEAKER: Chris Casady had just graduated film school at California Institute of the Arts in the summer of 76 when he landed his first job in the motion picture industry working in a warehouse in Van Nuys on a low budget science-fiction film. The company employing him turned out to be the first incarnation of now famous Industrial Light and Magic and the film he was working on was Star Wars. Already a 3-D photography hobbyist at the time, Chris brought his 3-D camera into work and photographed the irresistibly cool spaceship models he’d seen there. In doing so he inadvertently made a historical record documenting the Special Effects shop that created the magic that launched a franchise, a mythology, an empire and a thousand sequels. Have breakfast, then don some 3D glasses to peer back into the history of a galaxy far, far away and 45 years ago. See: Behind the Scenes of the Making of Star Wars. May The 4th Be With All Of Us!
