In addition to his contribution to Star Wars, Colin has been involved in several other iconic projects. His credits include:
• Working closely with Stanley Kubrick to design the space scenes and suggest the memorable music for “2001, A Space Odyssey”;

• Designing the first OmniMax theater in San Diego which later became Imax;
• Developing the first multi-color computer monitor for HP;
• Working on several other movies including, War Games, Close Encounters of the Third Kind;
