Visual effects artist Victor Schutz: 'A New Take on an Old Galaxy: Making the Visual Effects of Rogue One'

"Rogue One" computer graphics supervisor Vick Schutz will talk about what it was like to be part of the ensemble crew at Industrial Light & Magic (ILM) working on the Star Wars film "Rogue One."

Put your Star Wars knowledge to the test as you discover the information they unearthed about the previous films that was needed to recreate the familiar feel of "A New Hope" within the style of the new film. Learn about the visual effects in the film, including the spectacular, the subtle, a few Easter eggs, and some of the hijinks that ensued along the way.

Schutz currently is the lighting supervisor for the upcoming "Solo: A Star Wars Story."

"For Rogue One: A Star Wars Story," he was in charge of the technology needed for the visual effects of the film and a member of the Digital Human team. He also supervised the K-2SO vault sequence. 

He has worked on such films as "Star Wars: Episode II Attack of the Clones," "Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets," and "Pirates of the Caribbean: The Curse of the Black Pearl." His two dozen film other credits also include "Ready Player One" and "Pacific Rim," for which he was the computer graphics supervisor; "Mission: Impossible - Ghost Protocol" (lead artist); and "Watchmen" (lighting lead).

This event is co-sponsored by the Lawrence H. Roys Endowment and the Institute for Leadership and Service.
