If you are bit of an editing geek and a bit of a techno geek you must read the book “Droid Maker” (DroidMaker.com) about the genesis of the technological side of Lucas Film (as well as the industry as a whole). At times the book goes pretty deep down the rabbit hole of geekdom but overall it is incredibly fascinating to get in on the ground floor of everything from NLE’s to CG graphics to Pixar to video games. These guys were skilled visionaries that persevered for decades before technology could make their dreams reality. It’s amazing to read this book and realize how such a relatively small group of people have had a massive impact. You would be hard pressed not to find some of their fingerprints on just about every part of the average person’s digital lifestyle.
