  • Leonard Yee, a retired Imagineer from Disney Parks, will discuss the making of Star Wars at the parks and his AT-AT designed in ZBrush, amongst a number of others whose professional lives have touched a galaxy far, far away.
  • Sam Williams, who worked on Star Wars as the costume concept modeler since The Force Awakens, and has used ZBrush in the creation of helmets in the films, where 95% of his workflow is in ZBrush 

ZBrush users are also encouraged to create & send their best Star Wars fan art for a chance to be featured during this special live stream event!
