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.)

James Clyne is a design supervisor and visual effects art director at Industrial Light & Magic, who has worked on the Sequel Trilogy and Solo: A Star Wars Story, as well as other incredible movies.

Highlights of his incredible career include working with Steven Spielberg on Minority Report, collaborating with James Cameron on Avatar and Alita: Battle of Angel, and of course designing for JJ Abrams on his first two Star Trek films, and then the sequel trilogy.

Whether it is the TIE Silencer, Lando’s Millennium Falcon, or the final battle of The Rise of Skywalker, we really delve into so much of his process and inspirations.
