Star Wars: Episode VII

Neal Scanlan Studios

I was fortunate enough to be asked to join the Creature Effects department on Disney's hotly anticipated Star Wars: Episode VII, directed by J.J. Abrams, which is due for release at the end of 2015. I was there for over two months, working in both the mouldshop and fabrication department. I was particularly lucky to be one of the crew who worked on creating an exciting new droid, BB-8, as well as assisting Tahra Zafar creating two alien creature suits featured in the 'Cantina' scene.
