What has been your favourite event at Lucas Studios?

It would have to be the free pizza in the common room. I love pizza – simple!

Have you made friends at Lucas Studios?

My girlfriend has made friends which has really benefited her as she gets lonely sometimes. I don’t socialise as much but I always say hi and have a chat with staff onsite. Most of my friends are online that I play PC games with. So the reliable internet connection at Lucas Studios is a really big deal for me.
