And we are back for 2016!!! On the heels of “The Force Awakens” it only seems fitting we do something with Star Wars this month.
A hysterical look (we hope) at the bike chase from Return of the Jedi
Legendary recounting of the Bike Chase and all of its peculiar challenges from the days of photo-chemical visual effects – a “how did they do that?” story. And why would we care?
Raffles from DigiEffects, Red Giant, ArtBeats, and MORE!!! As always, with your registration you get 1 free raffle ticket and we will supply pizza and beverages for all. Additional raffle tickets will be available for purchase at the door and throughout the event as well, $2/1 or $5/3.
About the Presenter
Jay Ignaszewski – visionaut
Bringing close to 30 years of experience to the conversation, Jay illustrates what a vast reservoir of mis-information and legend can add to a presentation.
Starting his career in the San Francisco Bay area, his first feature film was One Flew Over the Cuckoo’s Nest and it was all downhill from there. To survive in the Bay Area one had to be a master in all of the dark arts of film production – doing sound, camera, lighting, producing and editing to pay the bills.
Snatched from the suspended production of the Right Stuff by a request from Lucas Film for a weekend of help with a documentary on the making of Jedi – Jay did not escape from Lucas for 4 years – working live action editorial and ILM editorial for Jedi, Raiders, Indy and the Temple of Doom, Never Ending Story, Star Trek III, Gremlins, and various others.
From there out into the freelance feature film world of post – working at Amblin, Dreamquest, Disney for directors such as Speilberg, David Lynch, Phillip Borsos, Doug Trumbull and Mel Brooks (to name a few) Jay eventually gravitated to becoming a somewhat digital expert. Building Pacific Ocean Post’s Digital Film Center (Independence Day) digital post division of Editel and becoming Post Producer for MassIllusions.
Films Jay has worked on reflect over 18 Academy Awards and he has an Emmy for Twin Peaks
Lured to the dark side of manufacturing, he has become a bit of a liaison between the industry and the manufacturers representing everything from ISP ticketing, cameras, converters, tripods and batteries to lighting and teleprompters
Jay currently lives in Conn, seeking a more perfect Pinot Noir to accompany his famous bolognase.
