You’ve never heard of Jason Reeves? … He  made the Kessel run in less than 12 parsecs. duh! Well that's actually a lie..but Jason did work for George Lucas. Which is pretty damn cool. We got to talk with Jason recently about what it was like working for Lucas Arts in its final years before being bought by Disney. One of the really interesting aspects about his job was that Jason had already been working in the Toronto Animation scene for over a decade. So this was a pretty big move to uproot his family from Toronto to LA for a job. Have a listen as we dive into the aspects of what it took to make this move possible and the experiences he gained while working for Lucas Arts.
