On Thursday night I attended this event at the Academy of Motion Pictures Arts and Sciences' Samuel Goldwyn Theater, which was a talk chock-full of people who worked on the original Star Wars and also Rogue One (and other ILM films). Even Marcia Lucas(!!!) appeared to explain how she edited the Death Star battle (and they showed chunk of the rough cut of this complete with the WWII dogfight footage she used as placeholder in lieu of ILM finishing the effects, but, sadly, this doesn't appear in the video below). They even had the Dykstraflex camera in the lobby (link to pic I tweeted of it). From the Oscars website: Over the last 40 years, technology has advanced by leaps and bounds. But the impetus to create and inspire remains the same. This event will contrast the analog technologies developed for the first STAR WARS released in 1977 with the all-digital toolsets used to create ROGUE ONE 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.
