Well, thank the Academy, and Steven Spielberg, George Lucas, Kathy Kennedy, Frank Marshall, and Robert Watts, everybody at Industrial Light & Magic.
I'd like to thank Elliot Scott, the production designer, for asking me to work with him, and thank Steven Spielberg for giving me the opportunity. Thank you.
There's about a hundred other people at ILM to thank. We don't have time so I'd like to thank a few of them. They are: Bruce Nicholson, Michael Owens, Barbara Gallucci, Pat Sweeney, Howie Stein and the entire editorial department, and Pat Fitzsimmons and the incredible ILM grip department. Thank you.
I'd also like to especially throw in a thanks for George Lucas; it's our tenth year this year. And also the model shop, which is about thirty of us. Thank you very much.
Thank you very much.
