TJ Falls is Vice President of Visual Effects at Lucasfilm. Having previously served as the primary VFX Producer on a number of Lucasfilm projects and a VFX Executive on others, he now oversees visual effects production for all of Lucasfilm’s slate of feature films and live action series, while still maintaining a hands-on role producing specific projects.
Working from Lucasfilm’s London studio, TJ produces large-scale and complex shows with a heavy reliance on visual effects. He enjoys the process of finding creative solutions to storytelling challenges and making the seemingly impossible a reality through innovation, collaboration, and strategy.
Since joining Lucasfilm in 2016, TJ has been part of the producing team for visual effects on Star Wars: The Force Awakens, Rogue One: A Star Wars Story, Solo: A Star Wars Story, and Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker — films that garnered multiple Academy Award and BAFTA nominations and awards for Best Visual Effects.
Most recently, TJ was the Lucasfilm VFX Executive on Indiana Jones and the Dial of Destiny and The Acolyte, as well as the VFX Executive Producer on the Disney+ series, Willow. TJ is simultaneously serving as the Head of Department Visual Effects Producer for Season 2 of Andor, a role for which he was recognized with a BAFTA nomination in the show’s first season.
Originally hailing from Los Angeles, TJ studied at UCLA and subsequently spent more than 10 years in the entertainment industry in LA, with time spent in-house at Paramount Pictures, Bad Robot, and on numerous high profile and large-scale feature films. He moved to London to work with Lucasfilm and ILM after partnering with the companies on Star Wars: The Force Awakens and has been on the journey with them ever since.
