An Interview with ILM’s Hal Hickel
by David Yeh on February 7, 2013
The last time we took a visit to Industrial Light & Magic, we spoke to Glen McIntosh, who helped contribute to Star Tours: The Adventures Continue. This time we’re taking a stroll away from Tomorrowland and into New Orleans Square (or Adventureland for our East Coast readers) to speak with Hal Hickel, Animation Director at Industrial Light and Magic. Hal has worked at ILM since 1996 and worked on many of cinema’s most memorable films beginning with Steven Spielberg’s The Lost World: Jurassic Park, but there’s a series of films that intrigued us the most: Pirates of the Caribbean.
