Rick Baker Gets Walk of Fame Star

November 20, 2012

Well this is great news I got via the Stan Winston School of Character Arts‘ page on Facebook: FX-wizard Rick Baker will receive a Star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame! And it’s about time if you ask me. He’s been Oscar nominated for his (amazing) work on An American Werewolf in London, Tim Burton‘s great Ed Wood and Men in Black among others (he’s won seven) and is a true master special effects. Congratulations!


Fear on Film

August 22, 2012

Well, here’s a nice slice of pop culture history: Fear on Film, a roundtable discussion produced by Universal Studios featuring directors John Carpenter, John Landis and David Cronenberg –  who were all working with the studio at the time. Intended to be used as a promotional tool, I think this is just a fascinating time slice as Carpenter was working on The Thing, Landis had just finished An American Werewolf in London and Cronenberg was about to begin Videodrome. Three parts in total, check them out!
