This is the first of several photo galleries chronicling Jimmy Mac's experience at Skywalker Ranch. Here's what he had to say about these photos:
Last weekend, Lucasfilm opened the gates at Skywalker Ranch to members of the media from all over the world to celebrate the upcoming release of Star Wars Episode One: The Phantom Menace, and The ForceCast was invited! The amazing weekend featured stops at the Technical Building at Skywalker Ranch and ILM at The Presidio. At the Tech Building, media were treated to audio demonstrations by Skywalker Sound's Matthew Wood, a sneak-peek at Darth Maul in The Clone Wars from Lucas Animation's Joel Aron, a behind-the-scenes look at the pod race with ILM digital artist John Goodson, and lightsaber training with Obi-Shawn. The first special ForceCast report podcast is available here. Stay tuned to The ForceCast for more reports from the weekend, and keep checking back with us for more photo galleries, videos, and a special video podcast from the event. Here is our first photo gallery, courtesy of Lucasfilm photographer Tina Mills!
