Happy May 4th, SparkFans!

While this video may be a few years old, we think it’s a really neat inside look at some of the filming of The Mandalorian, specifically scenes of the Razor Crest. The team at Industrial Light & Magic (ILM) walk fans through how certain scenes from season one were filmed and the setups used.

Since it is Star Wars Day, we would be remiss to not show off all of our (and our friends') existing Star Wars-themed projects from "a long time ago." So make sure to take a minute to check them out and see if you can find something that could help you with a new project.

Additionally, if there's something that you see that you'd like us to work on again or update, let us know! Now, if you'll excuse us, we're going to scour the Internet in the hopes of finding a new trailer or announcement for the next Star Wars film or show! May the fourth, and force, be with you!
