A few weeks ago, my husband Eric travelled up to San Francisco to visit Industrial Light and Magic. I had originally planned to go along with him, but because of a few scheduling changes and a new job, I ended up having to miss out on the trip. But why should all of you miss out just because of me? Today, Eric is here to share his experience at this iconic film & visual effect studio. Take it away, Eric!
Recently, I was invited by a friend to join him at a screening of his short film. Both Erika and I work on a variety of films; in the last few years we’ve worked on everything ranging from short films to major studio releases, even Oscar nominated documentaries. Needless to say, we attend many screenings throughout the year. However, what made this invitation special was that the screening would be held at Industrial Light & Magic in San Francisco.
Unfortunately, ILM has a firm “no-photos” policy beyond the main entrance. The pictures here are of the main entry way, which is open to the public. ILM’s offices are found at the Presidio in San Francisco. They share the grounds with other offices once part of the Lucasfilm empire, as well as several other historical sites and businesses.
