ILM, LucasArts & Machinima

George Lucas is the most influential filmmaker of the past thirty years. Not just because of Star Wars and Industrial Light and Magic either; he's lit and/or bankrolled the spark behind virtually every major advance in digital cinema since the dawn of the computer age. A new BusinessWeek article discusses how now George has got religion when it comes to Machinima and is restructuring his LucasArts and ILM divisions in an effort to have the two separate companies work together collaboratively in the area of real-time 3d graphics and previsualization.

You just know that some cool technology is going to come out of this!
