"Star Wars: Rebel Assault 2"
PC CD-ROM game Developed & published by Lucasarts Entertainment Co.

I was Lead Artist and oversaw production of all artwork.
I art directed a staff of 18 artists, while at the same time
designing & building most of the new vehicles and bases, and
animating all of the cinematic cutscenes in the game.

Characters were shot live on blue screen and composited
by Mark Christiansen into virtual 3D sets I built.
All scenes were rendered and laboriously reduced from 24-bit to 8-bit
and further compressed with proprietary tools for CD-ROM playback.
Remember, this was 1993!
