Oh my, it's Lea!

Oh my, it's Lea!

Last Saturday and Sunday there was a Hollywood collector show in Burbank and the theme was “Back to the Future”. Christopher Lloyd, lea Thompson, the  Save the clock tower lady, Claudia Wells who played jennifer Parker and a whole host of the other stars were there to promote the almost 25th anniversary of the movies 1985 premiere.  Probably one of the biggest of the stars to show up was Sir Andy Probert himself!!! The art genius who penciled the Time machines details was unavailable for lengthy  comment and to sign Autographs due to scheduling problems with his show followed by a huge fist punching brawl in the parking lot between himself, Doug Drexler, and Daren Dochterman.  I missed all the fun outside because I was inside waiting in a ridiculously long line to chat for a second with my favs from one of my fav movies “Back to the Future”!!!  It was a quick good time, but couldn’t hang out to long because I had to get home for a big Rodeo weekend with my Family!!!

close upThe Expanse offered the opportunity do build an Earth based starship defense system that incorporated some new ship designs. like the armada from First Contact theses vessels had to have the design elements of the Federation but be distinctly different when seen in an FX battle Sequence. This was a huge concept show that included a new klingon Bird of Prey, the NX-02 in space dock and under construction, The armada vessels and a whole host of other designs. The armada drawings never went past the rough sketch form and after the producers made their choices the drawings went right to Eden to be built. Those CG monsters always went the extra mile to model fabulous ships and images for Enterprise. It was a real treat to see the creativity that would come from the vast amount of talent housed in a small dark lightless cove over at the Gower studios. I don’t think they even have house lights in their bldg.. because I once saw housecleaning using miners hats to light the way and if the light would hit a modeler they wold hold their face and scream as they would fall back out of their chairs!!! HAAAA! this is a true story by the way! Anyways here are some views and concepts to start the week and thanks for all the stories shared last week with Cobb and Goldsmith!!! have a great Monday!
