Jim Nelson, Who Helped Build ILM, Dies At 81
Bespin refugee - June 22, 2014


Jim Nelson, who worked in the sound department since the mid to late 1950's, including as sound editor on George Lucas's American Graffiti, has died at 81. "From 1975 through 1977, Nelson functioned as the uncredited associate producer of Star Wars, on which he oversaw the administration and management of Lucas' ILM [Industrial Light & Magic]. He helped build the company from scratch in a warehouse on Valjean Avenue near Van Nuys Airport." Nelson is said to have hired a young John Dykstra, who created a "computer-controlled camera that could store specific movements (dolly, tilt, zoom, focus, etc.) so that they could be repeated with precision when needed."
