Dennis Muren liked special effects ever since he was a young boy, but he saw it more so as a hobby. Dennis kept pursuing what he liked while taking on other odd jobs to support himself financially. Dennis stuck with his passion and one day, when George Lucas needed someone to head up the special effects for a movie called Star Wars, Dennis landed the job. He has gone on to invent, pioneer, and redefine the field working on such movies as ET, Terminator 2, Jurassic Park, and most recently A.I. Along the way, he has managed to drum up eight Academy Awards for his revolutionary work.
