Host & Editor of Those Happy Places, Giving the Gift of Murder, and The Joust! Interim Co-Host of Rogue Fun: A Podcast Story! Educator and Media Scholar out of the Bay Area, California.
Alice White (@alicewhitethp) and Buddy Duquesne (@buddy_duquesne) have the amazing honor to present this interview with industry legend and ACTUAL Rogue One crew member: Hal Hickel! Hal Hickel is a four time Oscar nominee for Achievement in Visual Effects (including for his work on Rogue One!), winning once for his work on Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Man's Chest. He is an animation director at Industrial Light and Magic, is responsible for the movement of the Droidekas, and is currently the animation supervisor for The Mandalorian. Hal was so kind to come on our show and talk about his background in animation, his thoughts on stop-motion and claymation, and his work on our favorite movie. He talks about the creation of K2-SO, the reshoots and post-production challenges, and what it means for a boy from a farm in Colorado to work on and create for Star Wars. Don't forget to join us at the end of the month for our discussion of part 1 (chapters 1-13) of Catalyst: A Rogue One Novel by James Luceno. Follow Hal on twitter here!

Episode Notes Now that their watch-through has finished, Alice White (@alicewhitethp) and Buddy Duquesne (@buddy_duquesne) talk about the impact the movie has had on their lives, read out some listener mail, and break down the plans for the next few months of podcasting. They talk a lot about hope, the Force, coming to terms with their love of the prequel trilogy, and how much they love and appreciate everyone who listens. Content Warning: For reasons I can't explain, this episode accidentally spoils the endings to Citizen Kane and The 6th Sense. We also briefly talk about death and grieving.
