A feature length documentary called VISUAL FUTURIST: the art & life of Syd Mead, covering the life and career of the legendary conceptual designer behind films like Blade Runner, TRON, Aliens, 2010, and Star Trek: The Motion Picture, will have its world premiere at the Dances With Films festival on Sunday, July 23rd 2006. The film will be screening in Santa Monica, California at the Laemmle Theatre at 12:30 p.m.
The documentary includes interviews with Blade Runner producer Michael Deeley, production executive, Katherine Haber, vehicle builder, Gene Winfield, and author of “Future Noir”, Paul M. Sammon.
Update (June 29, 23:52): Joaquin informed me that Syd Mead has confirmed that he will be in attendance for the July 23rd, 12:30 p.m. screening of VISUAL FUTURIST. And that there will be a Q & A afterwards.
Thanks Joaquin, for the heads up.
