Bill Kimberlin may refer to himself as "one of those names on the endless list of credits at the close of blockbuster movies." In reality though, he's a true insider on some of the most celebrated and popular movies and franchises of the past century. Jurassic Park. Star Trek. Jumanji. Schindler's List. Saving Private Ryan. Even Forrest Gump. And perhaps most notably, Star Wars. Inside the Star Wars Empire is the very funny and insightful tell-all about the two decades Kimberlin spent as a department director at LucasFilm Industrial Light and Magic (ILM), the special effects studio founded by the legendary filmmaker George Lucas.

Professional reviews

"Bill Kimberlin worked for George Lucas for 20 years, until the digital age made him a Neanderthal. Still, he's got a lot of experience to share. Johnny Heller narrates Kimberlin's memoir as an old pro speaking to the digital generation about movie craft. Kimberlin has celebrity tidbits, but they usually show how people interact in the movie industry. Heller brings enthusiasm and wisdom to the narration, whether he's discussing meeting Paul McCartney or the reuse of cinematic clouds in VistaVision. Kimberlin and his brother made the cult film AMERICAN NITRO, so he has film industry experiences to share beyond his career with Lucas. Kimberlin's audiobook is an insider look in the best way, introducing listeners to movies as a business and a craft. J.A.S. © AudioFile 2018, Portland, Maine"
