Winner of nine Academy Awards® or Best Achievement in Visual Effects, plus a Technical Achievement Academy Award®, Dennis Muren began his career at Industrial Light & Magic in 1976 as miniature effects cameraman on the original Star Wars: A New Hope. Throughout his long career, Muren has remained at the cutting edge of new techniques, championing the use of digital imagery for such seminal films as The Abyss, Terminator 2: Judgment Day, and Jurassic Park. As Senior Visual Effects Supervisor and Creative Director of Industrial Light & Magic, Muren remains at the forefront of the company’s continuing evolution.

“Dennis Muren is a true living legend,” says Conference Director Dr. Maria Elena Gutierrez. “Whenever I hear him speak, I get the same feeling as when I go to a beautiful exhibition, or attend a wonderful concert, or watch an amazing movie. His views are bold and profound, yet at the same time he has great humility and is always willing to learn from young people. Wherever he turns his attention, Dennis always elevates things to a higher level.”
