Claire Pedrick was speaking at the ICF Conference in 2019 when a publisher approached her and said: “Have you got a book in you?”That book is Simplifying Coaching, and in it Claire offers a rallying cry for filtering out the noise of the coaching industry and honing in on the very human essence of transformative conversations.In this episode of The Coach's Journey Podcast, Claire traces the steps that led her into a burgeoning coaching landscape around the turn of the century and reflects on the precious lessons learned from moments that sometimes felt like missteps.She shines a light on the “guru-ing” and “pedestal-ing” that can lead to problematic power dynamics in coaching, and shares the foundational values such as equity and fairness that underpin the success of 3D Coaching and saw her recognised with the 2022 Outstanding Contribution to Coaching Award from Henley Business School.Claire is a master of the art of communicating complicated things simply, but admits it took a long time to have the confidence to cut through complexity and offer straightforward truths when coaching or mentoring coaches.Listening to her speak, you cannot fail to appreciate the fundamental importance of her approach, which is explained with refreshing clarity. In this episode, we talk about:Whether we have to be the things we want to develop in people The impact of modelling the boundaries we setThe holy ground in the coaching space and how to interact with itBeing wise about how many coffees to have with someone and still call it workLearning how to be silent and how to wait while coaching clients are doing good workClaire also talks about how to value your time, how to balance delivery and business development, and the importance of – as coaches – telling the truth about ourselves.To learn more about Claire, visit https://www.linkedin.com/in/clairepedrick/For information about my wider work, my writing or to buy my books, visit www.robbieswale.com.Music by My Good Man William: listen on Spotify: https://open.spotify.com/artist/4KmeQUcTbeE31uFynHQLQgTo support the Coach's Journey, visit www.patreon.com/thecoachsjourney and to join the Coach's Journey Community visit www.thecoachsjourney.com/community.

LOTS OF VISUALS!This episode features Svana Gisla, Co-Producer, and Baillie Walsh, Director of ABBA Voyage, a hybrid virtual/IRL concert series centered on “ABBAtars,” digital avatars of the Swedish super-group, ABBA, which portray its members as they appeared in 1977, the group's heyday. The concerts take place in the ABBA Arena, a purpose-built facility at the Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park in London's East End.Gisla and Walsh provide us with an in-depth overview of the ABBA Voyage project, which employed a range of motion-capture and graphics technologies, was “filmed” with 160 cameras, took five years to realize, involved collaboration with ILM and many other partners, and cost $175 million. They also tell us why they think this shared, immersive experience has proven so popular with audiences; describe how those audiences “fall in love” with the ABBAtars, share their thoughts on the project's implications for the future of storytelling, and more.

If you listened to episode 61 you'll know it was part one of a two part conversation with Lucasfilm and ILM producer Jim Bloom. Jim is a great talker and worked on so many projects, most of them successful but he also talks openly and enthusiastically about some movies that didn't make it into production and about some that did but didn't do much at the box office.In this conversation we talk about his cameos as Luke Skywalker in The Empire Strikes Back, about the challenges running an effects house and the ups and downs of life as a producer, his views on Return of the Jedi director, the late Richard Marquand and his time working alongside Richard in Yuma and in the Redwood forests of California. We also talk about a little known film that Jim produced called Warning Sign, released in 1983, which he says had some hints towards how a future pandemic may play out. I'm going to track down a DVD or blu ray of that.I hope you enjoy it.Check out the following link if you're interested in supporting the Joe Alves documentary project on Kickstarter - https://www.backerkit.com/call_to_action/1d3f98a4-6576-46f0-9585-6c9fc45ab7e5/landing

This week on 8111, Nelson Hall. Nelson is that rare breed…a Marin native. Oh, and his birthday is on Halloween! Growing up he loved watching old movies on TV. He was captivated by the films of Ray Harryhausen and the Wizard of Oz. He always liked drawing and making things including several Rube Goldberg contraptions in his family's living room.He attended Sonoma State for a time and studied art. Still searching for a way to get into a creative job, he landed a job at the Printing Factory on Kerner Blvd. just two blocks from ILM. He transferred to San Francisco State (Go Gaters!) and continued his degree in art taking classes at night while working full-time.Nelson's speech 101 teacher, Diana Reese, gave him his first break. He'd given a speech on the art of visual effects and his teacher offered to introduce him to her friend, ILM model maker Marc Thorpe. That introduction led to some freelance work that eventually turned into a full-time opportunity.Nelson has worked on numerous films including; Alive, Fire in the Sky, The Flintstones, Star Trek: Generations, Congo, Daylight, Flubber, Star Wars: Episode 1 The Phantom Menace, Galaxy Quest, AI, Matrix 2 & 3, Attack of the Clones, War of the Worlds, Pirates of the Caribbean, Evan Almighty, The Cove, Pacific Rim, Elysium, and many others. Nelson shares a great story of his journey from Marin kid to traveling the world working on films, special events, projects for Disney, and operating R2D2. It was a blast to catch up with Nelson and hear his incredible story.
So for this episode, number 61 I have ex ILM and Lucasfilm producer Jim Bloom. Jim started his career proper on Lucas's American Graffiti and then navigated a very interesting path through numerous titles with some amazing directors. Some of those titles... The Empire Strikes Back, Return of the Jedi, Close Encounters, Invasion of the Bodysnatchers...I spoke with Jim just a couple of weeks ago over Zoom. We had a very long conversation so this will be a two parter. I warn you, we do go off on a few tangents, but I'm sure you'll enjoy it. Jim speaks so enthusiastically about his time in the industry.
This episode we are revisiting our conversation with master cinematographer Dan Mindel (“Mission: Impossible 3”). Mindel talks about his relationship with the franchise, the movie's iconic use of close-ups (plus how he and JJ Abrams developed the look of the movie), and how closely he worked with the visual effects artists at ILM. We also dip into other parts of his career, including “Star Trek,” "Star Wars," “Shanghai Noon” and “John Carter.” It's a ride!
THEY'RE Heeeeeeeeereeee! That's right Snobbies, we back and we watched POLTERGEIST! Welcome to SPOOKTOBER 3 part 2!

Pat Sweeney, or is it Mike Sweeney? There's really no way to be sure. Pat grew up in Manhattan Beach, California. He is an identical twin. Pat went with his brothers and sisters to the local catholic school and loved watching old movies on tv growing up. He saw all the Harryhausen films, King Kong, and was a fan of the original Star Trek. For college Pat knew he wanted to study film. He enrolled with his brother Mike at Loyola Marymount University in their film and tv program. While in school he got a chance to try various roles and even made a few short films. After college Pat was working at a car rental place to make ends meet when his brother Mike got a job as a production assistant at a fledgling visual effects company in Van Nuys that was working on a little movie called Star Wars. Shortly after that Pat was hired by Rose Duignan to work as a night watchman. After the Star Wars team moved up to Marin for Empire, Pat came to work as a camera assistant at Apogee on Star Trek: The Motion Picture. From there he went to work for Roger Corman on Battle Beyond the Stars where he worked with a young James Cameron. He worked for several years in Los Angeles and when a call came to come work on ET at ILM in San Rafael he took the leap. Pat worked at ILM for 25 years shooting elements for major effects sequences in Return of the Jedi, Temple of Doom, The Hunt for Red October, the Pirates films, the Transformers, and so many more. During my time at ILM Pat would often be in the motion control stage in D-building solving problems and shooting elements. He has a great sense of humor and it was always great fun to work with him. It was so much fun to catch up with him and hear about his incredible career.

This month there's a peck with an acorn pointed at our hearts as we declare love for 1988's WILLOW! Too often maligned as a pale Star Wars retread, George Lucas' mythic adventure has defied critics and endured thanks to the loyal fanbase that grew up with it. We'll trace Willow's long journey to the screen, discuss the iconic cast and crew and uncover shocking on-set secrets (from horny pigs to a potty-mouthed old sorceress). Nik will audition his own Wilhelm Scream and work through some Ben Burtt-related trauma and we'll hatch a plot to excavate our long lost Willow action figures from their shallow grave. It's everything you need to know about WILLOW before the Disney Plus show drops, and a few things you'll wish you didn't! Forget all you know or think you know and listen to the episode that Eborsisk gives "Two Heads Up!"

I don't have much in the way of film artefacts these days. I have a couple of replica Star Wars helmets. Some Neca Alien and Jaws action figures and of course some reference books.

Had a short stint at ILM. Owner of items relevant to the conversation you're about to hear.Thanks to both David Mandel and Jim Maxwell for being great!

Just about every major film now comes to us with an assist from digital effects. The results are obvious in superhero fantasies, yet dramas like Roma also rely on computer-generated imagery to enhance the verisimilitude of scenes. But the realism of digital effects is not actually true to life. It is a realism invented by Hollywood—by one company specifically: Industrial Light & Magic. The Empire of Effects: Industrial Light & Magic and the Rendering of Realism (University of Texas Press, 2022) shows how the effects company known for the puppets and space battles of the original Star Wars went on to develop the dominant aesthetic of digital realism. Julie A. Turnock finds that ILM borrowed its technique from the New Hollywood of the 1970s, incorporating lens flares, wobbly camerawork, haphazard framing, and other cinematography that called attention to the person behind the camera. In the context of digital imagery, however, these aesthetic strategies had the opposite effect, heightening the sense of realism by calling on tropes suggesting the authenticity to which viewers were accustomed. ILM's style, on display in the most successful films of the 1980s and beyond, was so convincing that other studios were forced to follow suit, and today, ILM is a victim of its own success, having fostered a cinematic monoculture in which it is but one player among many.

This is a very special episode of Talking Bay 94. A couple of weeks ago, thanks to Lucasfilm, we got to participate in roundtable interviews with the cast of the upcoming Disney+ series, ANDOR. We got about 20 minutes each with newcomers Kyle Soller and Denise Gough (“Syril Kam” and “Dedra Meero”), Genevieve O'Reilly (“Mon Mothma”) and executive producer Diego Luna (“Cassian Andor”). It was a huge thrill, obviously, and I hope you all enjoy. ANDOR coming to Disney+ next month on September 21, with the first three episodes. Other panelists included: Jedi News Skytalkers Star Wars Explained Triad of the Force Skywalking Through Neverland SW Holocron Coffee with Kenobi Father Son Galaxy Pink Milk Podcast Fangirls Going Rogue We have some cool episodes coming up very soon, including my interview with ILM's Rachel Rose.

So much new info about George Lucas's legendary special effects company has been revealed via new documentary series like “Light and Magic” and “Icons Unearthed: Star Wars”. In 1978, George moved ILM from Southern California up north to San Rafael into a facility on Kerner Blvd, where it stayed until 2005. Thanks to veteran filmmaker Sean House, RFR was recently allowed access to this former home of ILM and important location of film history. This is the place where STAR WARS special effects from EMPIRE to REVENGE OF THE SITH were created, not to mention RAIDERS, E.T., Jurassic Park and so many more groundbreaking films. It's still in use today as 32Ten Studios and still creating amazing effects. Effects wiz Sean House joins us to talk about his career, his history with ILM and shares behind-the-scenes stories you've never heard before about working with George Lucas and Rick McCallum. Thanks to the help of loyal RFR listeners, Jason has solved his problem with Star Wars action figures falling down. We also talk about newer action figure releases from Black Series to Retro Vintage and more.
Our complete review and discussion of Light & Magic, the incredible documentary about the beginning, legacy, and most importantly, the people of ILM. Directed by Lawrence Kasdan, Light & Magic affected each of us in varying ways, which led to a really great discussion including how it will positively influence and impact generations to come. The Resistance base is open to all, so please spread the word about our Star Wars podcast and join us! Please make sure to subscribe free to the show on your preferred platform!

Netflix is the latest platform to turn a Neil Gaiman property into a series with The Sandman. How does this one go? First-time guest Ilan Muskat is here to talk about it! Around The Dial takes us through Season 3 of Harley Quinn; Season 2 of Girls5Eva; the TV movie Helter Skelter; and the ILM doc Light & Magic. Keira cashes in her Extra Credit to make us turn unexpected TV properties into videogames. Then after naming the week's Winner and Loser, it's on to a Game Time that hits some real lows and highs.

In podcasting terms, that makes us positively Methuselahian. Since the start of EHG, our listeners have asked if we had a tip jar or donation system and we'd look at each other and say surely that is a joke, people don't pay other people to do podcasts. We'd email them back "Ha ha ha, good one, Chet" and go about our business. Now we are told this is a real thing that real nice people do. Value for value? In today's topsy turvy world? It's madness but that good kind of madness, like when you wake up at 3:15am and clean your house. Or something. In all seriousness, we are humbled by your continued prodding to get a Patreon page up for EHG and here it is! Extra Hot Great on Patreon See acast.com/privacy for privacy and opt-out information.
