Michael McCormick was one of the original puppeteers and sculptors of Salacious Crumb, Sy Snootles and Ephant Mon, who then left Return of the Jedi’s Creature Shop early into production, because of injuries.
This is a short, live, interesting interview, and I believe it’s his first Star Wars-related one ever. We touch on many subjects, some fun and some not-so-fun, but I hope you get a better understanding of Mr. McCormick from this, as well as of his life and his incredible talent.
Thank you, as always, to Zach McGinnis at Galactic Productions for setting this up: http://www.galacticproductionsevents.com/
