I was living at home with my mom. My credit card was maxed out,” Muren says, describing his life in the mid-1970s. “And then this film ‘Star Wars’ came along.”

Fast forward to June 1999, when visual effects master Dennis Muren was honored with a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame, the first visual effects artist to ever be so recognized. He has also been the recipient of nine Academy Awards (including special achievement awards), the most of any living movie-maker.

Muren worked on the first finished effects shot on “Star Wars” - looking up from a trench and seeing a cannon shooting on the Death Star. After his job with George Lucas was finished, he worked with Steven Spielberg on “Close Encounters of the Third Kind.” Still, he thought these were contract jobs, not a career. It wasn’t until years later that special effects cemented itself as an actual industry that was here to stay.

And now, Dennis Muren’s name is synonymous with the visual effects he helped usher into the industry.

So, as you head to the theater this weekend, know that our very own Dennis Muren (Class of '64) is the Senior Visual Effects Supervisor on the upcoming movie “Star Wars: The Force Awakens."

He is known for his work on Star Wars: Episode IV - A New Hope (1977), Star Wars: Episode V - The Empire Strikes Back (1980) and Star Wars: Episode VI - Return of the Jedi (1983). Dennis was inducted in the Muir Hall of Fame in 2012.
