This is a cool guy with an even cooler back story, Bruce logan was a young man when he worked on the visual effects at ILM for New Hope
One of his Quotes has always been that it was in fact him that blew up the Death star and not Luke Skywalker
“Blowing up the Death Star” is my greatest PR coup, but was in fact very low tech. The “Zero-G” explosions were achieved by looking “directly up” at some very exotic bombs made by Joe Viskocil. Using a high-speed camera, we detonated the explosion directly above the lens. Voilà.
I love adding any ILM guys you know your adding history every time you get one
