Gita Wisdom presents, In Good Company, a monthly interview series.
This month we speak with renowned artist/writer/filmmaker, Iain McCaig.
Iain McCaig and Joshua Greene have a forty-year history as collaborative storytellers. Whether to entertain or enlighten, their relationship sprang from a mutual desire to create stories to remember and share them with the world, Join them for an intimate conversation about creation and collaboration, of a forty-year journey to tell an ever-changing version of ’The Sorcerer’s Apprentice’ and the story of ‘Hanuman’, and their joy of using make-believe to search for the truth.
Iain McCaig has worked for over 40 years in the entertainment industry. Many of his creations have become pop-culture icons, like his cover for Jethro Tull’s ‘Broadsword and the Beast’ and his Star Wars designs for Queen Amidala and Darth Maul. He has collaborated on many films, among them ‘Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire’, ‘The Jungle Book’, ’Guardians of the Galaxy’, ’The Avengers’, and the ongoing ‘Star Wars’ franchise of movies, graphic novels, and theme parks.
In his spare time, McCaig writes, produces and directs, and wanders the land encouraging people to draw and tell stories. In May 2008, Spectrum Fantastic Art gave McCaig the prestigious GRAND MASTER award for Lifetime Achievement.
Joshua M. Greene (Yogesvara) is well known to the yoga community for his books and podcasts on the intersections of contemplative practice and daily life.
