Lucasfilm, Dan Gregor. This is big: Lucasfilm was rumored to have an agreement with SGI that they wouldn’t mention any other platforms. George Lucas on video. Talks about Mac OS X in the animatics department. The other new trend for the 00s: cool places to work (“My name is Dan and I work at Skywalker Ranch.”) Demonstrating animatics with texture and lighting on Maya. What if he changes his mind? AfterEffects. “We render in layers.” Shows the opening shot: “hero layer, background layer, traffic” (over Coruscant). “It’s the marriage between the apps and OS X that makes it possible.” This is one of the few times Steve’s brought up a customer.
