On May 19th I visited Skywalker Ranch.
Essentially there are three legal ways of getting on the premise of Skywalker’s beautiful ranch. 1) You work there. 2) You are invited due to some sort of business. 3) You know someone who works there. Now while either of the first two options would be a dream come true, the latter is not any less equal. I have the pleasure and privilege of being friends with Blake Collins, a Skywalker Sound foley mixer, who recently began working there. He even wrote a blog during his “trial period” that you should check out.
During the visit I saw many fabulous and fantastical things. Below are just a few of them:
My wife and I met Blake and his beautiful family around noon at Skywalker. Below is a selfie outside of the Main House. Pictured: Blake, myself (regardless of how pained I look, I was very excited. My eyes are sensitive to sunlight…being part vampire and all), Jenni (my wife), and Shayla (Blake’s wife). Their kids came too, but were too short to show up in this photo.
