Harrison Ellenshaw painted some of the incredibly detailed background matte paintings for the first two Star Wars movies. Working side-by-side with Ralph McQuarrie on the sequel, Mr. Ellenshaw made the galaxy far, far away into something believable and beautiful.

In addition to his work on the trilogy, Mr. Ellenshaw has had a varied visual effects career, including groundbreaking work on seminal classics like TronThe Man Who Fell to Earth and Black Hole, for which he was nominated for an Academy Award. 

We talk about it all, including (of course) Captain EO so definitely check it out!
