Special Effects Guru Grant McCune of Star Wars Fame Dies at 67

mcclune_225.jpgOscar-winning special effects artist Grant McCune, one of the original members of George Lucas' F/X team, has passed away at 67 from complications from cancer. Chances are that McCune played a major role in your childhood and adult life with his work on Star Wars, Star Trek: The Motion Picture or maybe Spaceballs. In remembrance of McCune and the model-work he helped pioneer, here's a making of video of some more recent miniatures work his special effects company did on Spider-Man. After that, take a look at clip from Star Wars: A New Hope which showcases the work which won McCune an Oscar. Rest in peace.
