John Hampian is the Vice President of Long Form Physical Production at Lucasfilm, primarily overseeing scripted series. Hampian directly oversaw production on The Mandalorian and was part of the team behind the ground-breaking technology used to execute the series.
Hailing from San Luis Obispo, CA, Hampian moved to Los Angeles with no connections to the entertainment industry, on a one-way mission to build a career in the business that so greatly influenced his childhood.
After graduating from California State University Northridge, and grinding through 12 hard years of freelance physical production, Hampian, a proud member of the DGA and IATSE, had well over 100 episodes of scripted series under his belt, including influential shows such as Mad Men, Kingdom and Magic City, all of which redefined the networks they were produced for; turning them into content creators, rather than distributors.
In 2018, Hampian was hand-picked by Jason McGatlin, Executive Vice President of Physical Production, to join the company as Vice President of Long Form Physical Production, closing the loop on a lifelong dream of involvement in the very content that motivated him as a young person.
