Yeasterday, Starwars.com posted an interview by Pete Vilmur with CG/FX/Lighting Supervisor for The Clone Wars, Joel Aron. Check out the intro below and click here for the full interview!
"Tonight's episode of Clone Wars, "Brain Invaders", closes the multi-part Geonosian arc that has introduced viewers to several stunning special effects created for the show, the most memorable probably being the flamethrowers used to take out the Geonosian warriors in "Landing at Point Rain." CG/FX/Lighting Supervisor Joel Aron, who spent nearly two decades creating visual effects for feature films at ILM, currently helms the effects team for Lucasfilm Animation, generating the stunning flamethrower, dust storm, lava, speeder bike rooster tail, and other effects spotted in recent episodes.
We asked Aron a few questions about how these effects were crafted for the series, and what viewers can expect to see in future episodes of Clone Wars."
