CVI: Special Guest Tom Spina

Posted By Dustin on May 12, 2012

Starwarscelebration.com has updated their guest list with another new entry, Tom Spina.

We were warned that “this place can be a little rough,” but Star Wars fans can’t help going back to the Mos Eisley Cantina over and over again. Celebration VI offers an in-depth exploration on the infamous watering hole from the original Star Wars, which includes some never before seen behind-the-scenes photos and artifacts from the creature-filled bar.

Professional sculptor and effects artist Tom Spina, who was inspired by the astounding creatures in the film, has made it his mission to uncover and chronicle the history of this beloved scene, its characters and the artists responsible for its creation. Spina has tracked the whereabouts of original cantina props and masks, rare photos, and even notes and illustrations from the production. As a young artist, Spina learned to sculpt by re-creating the Star Wars aliens that inspired him. This year, he and his talented crew at Tom Spina Designs helped recreate the cantina for its memorable appearance in Volkswagen's 2012 Super Bowl Commercial.

Spina will join Star Wars expert Pablo Hidalgo on the Behind-the-Scenes stage to discuss his research, show his creations, and reveal new secrets about the cantina. This panel is a must-see for fans of the original movie, creature effects enthusiasts, as well as those always seeking to learn something new about Star Wars.
