We've been given a rare opportunity to sit down for a Q&A session with visual effects impresario John M. Levin, one of Industrial Light and Magic's digital artists for The Nightmare Before Christmas. Now, I know what I'd ask him, but who cares what I want to know, the important thing is - what do YOU want to know?
Post any questions you might have for him about any of the films he's worked on, his job in general, what it's like to work at ILM, or anything else you might be curious about in the "questions" box HERE and we'll ask him for you - then check back the week of April 30th for the full interview!
