    Good interview. I was hoping that we would hear something about what it’s like being a woman working at ILM, but there wasn’t much on that. But it was an interesting piece anyway.
    Thanks.

    Very interesting and enjoyable to watch – I wish it was longer, but what a great treat to see at fxphd. I look forward to seeing more of these sneak peeks behind the scenes of the industry. Keep up the great work, fellas!

    Excellent interview… Nice to know the guys at ILM are human too! 😉 Maybe twist her arm into teaching a 300 level character animation course? Anyway, I’m looking forward to more of these artist interviews.

    I was delighted to see Maia featured for this interview. As a former classmate, I have witnessed her hard work, dedication, and wonderful personality first hand. I am not surprise that she is such a great asset for ILM. I am awestruck that she was involved in some of the biggest projects to date for ILM and I thought her interview was insightful. Thank you, FXphd and Maia Kayser. May you have continued success in the future.
