Even before the age of digital computers, CGI pioneer Ed Kramer was creating graphics for NBC and ABC Sports using an analog video computer called Scanimate. Working with each new technology introduced over 35 years, Ed's career culminated with 12 years and 24 feature films as a Senior Technical Director at Industrial Light + Magic, including Star Wars Episodes I, II and III, The Mummy, Van Helsing, and Galaxy Quest. A college professor in Denver for over a decade, Ed is now at The Companion, a cool new Sci-Fi super-fan site, for their "CGI Fridays" podcasts.
