What better way to kick off our new Reverse Angle series, highlighting heroes working behind the lens, than a screening of Star Wars: The Force Awakens followed by long time model shop guru Fon Davis joining us from LA to present “The Secret Models of Star Wars.” This is a can’t miss event giving us one last chance to catch Star Wars on OMSI’s four story Empirical Theater screen, and simultaneously getting us primed for Design Week with some serious shop talk.
And no one, NO ONE, can talk shop like Fon Davis. When it comes time to roll up one’s sleeves to create some movie magic back in the model shop, there are few who can top Fon’s travels. A long time ILM’er who since struck out on his own with his company – Fonco Creative – Fon is entrenched in a world of models and miniatures that are again in demand thanks to films like Star Wars making a responsible choice to return to more physical methods of filmmaking. Under Fon’s watchful eye, model shop artists deliver incredible visuals, inspring awe and appreciation with real-world detail you can reach out and touch, while seamlessly allowing room for “new school” digital enhancement. This is an evening you won’t want to miss.
Get your advance tickets here. Act now, seating is limited and likely to sell out.
