TALKING BAY 94 is the first Star Wars podcast solely devoted to interviews with the cast, crew and creators from a galaxy far, far away.

Join host Brandon Wainerdi (huge DVD special feature dork), for a weekly deep dive into some never-before-heard stories from the set and Skywalker Ranch. From background aliens to some of the biggest stars in the universe, TB94 will be trying to talk to them all, every Wednesday.

(And if someone has George Lucas’ cell phone number, please pass it along.)

Today, I’m talking to TyRuben Ellingson, Visual Effects Art Director who has worked on a ton of projects, including the Star Wars: A New Hope (Special Edition).

Whether breaking his arm on Jurassic Park or drawing floating Jabbas, we dive into his story and career … and what George Lucas really said in that first Special Edition meeting. (He also goes on the record about his involvement, or lack thereof, on Greedo shooting first.)

From working with Guillermo del Toro and James Cameron to Tron 3 and Neil Blomkamp’s Alien 5, he tells such inspiring stories about his career and his journey.

His website with more of his designs and projects is definitely worth a vist: alieninsect.com

Our Talking Bay 94 store has a VERY limited restock of ALL of our “Credits” line of shirts, so get on it because sizes are selling out FAST: https://talkingbay94.bigcartel.com/

Next week is my conversation with someone talked about quite a few times in this episode and a bunch of our previous episodes: nine time Academy Award-winner Dennis Muren. Yeah, I can’t believe it either.
