My Big Bro & Star Trek

Posted in movies by krisyee on May 10, 2009

If you saw my old post on Star Trek the movie…you know I was excited for it to come out. So excited…I already watched it…TWICE. Lol. The movie just came out on Friday…I saw it that morning @ the 1am IMAX showing. Then again yesterday while I was in LA. All I have to say was that it was AWESOME. It’s one of those movies that keep you entertained and the special effects and graphics were amazing. Plus Chris Pine’s a hottie.

The first time I watched it we ended up staying for the credits. And what do you know…I end up seeing my brother’s name in the credits! Under “Concept Art”…Dave Yee. WTH?! He didn’t tell me he worked on Star Trek! So of course I had to ask him.

me: did you work on star trek?
bro: yes
me: thanks for telling me! lol
bro: did you see it?
me: i saw your name in the credits and was like “WHAT?!” hahahaha
bro: wow, you stayed to watch the credits?

My brother’s VERY talented. After working for ILM and working on movies such as Star Wars and Van Helsing, he left to become a freelance artist. Since then he’s still been contracted by ILM to work on many different projects and movies.  He also teaches at his alma mater, SJSU (so if you’re an art major, take his class!). Good job on Star Trek bro!
