A SALUTE TO THE CREATOR
Ira Keeler - Born 07. 23. 1940; Died 16.04.2021
Ira Keeler was one of those unsung heroes from a time when they were still building a lot by hand. Keeler worked as a model builder for Industrial Light & Magic. He worked on many films like THE RETURN OF THE JEDI KNIGHTS (1983), INDANA JONES AND THE TEMPLE OF DEATH and THE LAST CROSS (1984 / 89) or COCOON (1985), BACK IN THE FUTURE (1985), DIE SLOWLY 2 (1990) or STAR TREK - THE FIRST CONTACT (1996).
Keeler appeared briefly in the ′′ Star Tours-Ride ′′ movie as a crew member ducking into an out-of-control Starspeeder 3000 A widespread misunderstanding was that this actor was actually George Lucas. Keeler also made a name for himself by building specialized miniature missiles for private use.
May your rocket take you to the stars dear Ira.
