In the wake of the Star Wars phenomenon of the 70s, the 80s brought us the low-budget apocalyptic space opera — often in 3D — and generally from Roger Corman or Albert Band; such pictures as STARCRASH, GALAXINA, METALSTORM, and ICE PIRATES. The August screening of SPACE HUNTER: ADVENTURES IN THE FORBIDDEN ZONE is something very different.
Though featuring a galactic bounty hunter menaced by a mechanical madman on a ruined world (of course), it is well written and directed, very well cast and acted (Molly Ringwald, Peter Strauss, Ernie Hudson) and boasts particularly imaginative sets by Jackson DeGovia, costumes by Julie Weiss, and visual effects by Gene Warren Jr. The Film Society will be presenting SPACEHUNTER in 3D on a silver screen specially installed for the occasion.
Specehunters’s Emmy winning Production Designer Jackson de Govia, has had a remarkably eclectic career. He has designed such disparate films as Die Hard, Bowfinger, Speed, Forgetting Sarah Marshall, The 40-Year Old Virgin, and SISTER ACT among many others.
He is delighted to have the opportunity to discuss his early career adventure bringing Space Hunter to the 3D screen. Joining Jack to discuss their work on SPACEHUNTER will be Costume Designer Julie Weiss (FRIDA, 12 MONKEYS, BLADES OF GLORY, AMERICAN BEAUTY), and visual effects legend Gene Warren Jr. (TERMINATOR 2: JUDGEMENT DAY, THE EXPENDABLES, MOONRISE KINGDOM, UNDERWORLD).
Moderating the discussion will be Production Designer and Film Society founder, John Muto ADG, Production Designer
Representing the ADG are Film Society Co-Chairs Thomas A. Walsh, John Muto, and John Iacovelli; and Debbie Patton, ADG Awards and Events Director.
