Ever wonder what it is like to work at ILM (Industrial Light and Magic) on a Star Wars film? Today’s guest is one of my best friends, Dan Cregan. Dan and I go way, way back. He worked with my doing VFX on my first film BROKEN.

We’ve continued to work together over the past 12 years. Dan has moved up in the VFX world working on blockbuster films like:

  • Star Wars: Rogue One
  • Star Wars: The Last Jedi
  • The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug
  • Spectre
  • The Martian
  • Guardians of the Galaxy
  • X-Men: Apocolypse
  • Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales
  • Fantastic Four
  • Dawn of the Planet of the Apes

I wanted to bring Dan back on the show to share his experience working behind the scenes of Star Wars: The Last Jedi and ILM. Enjoy my conversation with Dan Cregan. May the force be with you.
