The interview with Sean M. Jackson could not have gone better. Sean thank you for your time today sir. We ran over and you were very gracious with your time.

If you did not get to hear the interview, you have to go spend a little over an hour and listen to the interview at www.ilwug.com. We will have the interview recorded up tomorrow afternoon.

Sean covers his work at Foundation Imaging, Battlestar Galactica, Serenity, Caprica, and more as well as his own personal 2D work also done in LightWave.

Sean covers life at studios, and as a professional visual effects artist. How to break into the industry and as an artist what to expect out of Hollywood.

It was a great 2 hours... an awesome interview.

Thanks again Sean!
