http://live.pirillo.com/ – Michael Rubin joins me live to talk about his new book Droid Maker. This book delves into the computer division of the Lucas Film making empire. Learn about the birth of some of todays’ most impressive film technology… begun by a group of computer Geeks.
Droid Maker is the three year brainchild from author Michael Rubin. Michael was part of the group who worked many years ago, developing what we now know as Pixar. They also are the pioneers of avatars, online game play, and even digital video editing.
Droid Maker is the inside story of George Lucas, his company, and the work they did to revolutionize the film industry. This book ventures in territory never explored, as Michael reconstructs the events in Hollywood to track the genesis of modern media. This is a compelling story that takes the reader into an era of technological innovation almost completely unknown.
I can’t wait to dive in and read this book myself. I only received it the day of our interview, so I haven’t had a chance yet. But Michaels enthusiasm for his work, combined with my own love of technology, guarantees this is one book I won’t be able to put down.
