- "George Lucas wanted to have guest directors from live-action come in to bring a different sensibility to the animation process. George is always saying, "Oh, give me that shot, but do this…" and the guys who create the story reel animation sometimes don't understand what is needed, so I would become almost an interpreter. I would try to learn how they're doing it, but do it as if it were live-action."
- ―Duwayne Dunham
Duwayne Dunham (born November 17, 1952) was an assistant film editor for Star Wars: Episode V The Empire Strikes Back and an editor for Star Wars: Episode VI Return of the Jedi and From Star Wars to Jedi: The Making of a Saga. He also directed the Star Wars: The Clone Wars episodes "Pursuit of Peace" and "Water War."
During pre-production on Episode V, production designer Norman Reynolds asked Dunham to try on the first, all-white prototype armor for the character of Boba Fett, which he also wore at the 1978 San Anselmo Country Fair Day & Parade. Years later, as he was directing "Pursuit of Peace," a Star Wars Insider issue came out which featured a photograph of him in the suit. Within twenty minutes, several Lucasfilm employees lined up to get Dunham to autograph the magazine.
