This specialist weekend is a must for all Star Wars and sci-fi fans.
Gary Kurtz (producer of Star Wars, The Empire Strikes Back and American Graffiti,) and former vice president of 20th Century Fox International Sandy Lieberson will lead a comprehensive examination of how a film rejected by most of the major studios was put into production by 20th Century Fox and went on to become one of the most iconic films in the history of cinema.
Through a series of interactive seminars, Gary and Sandy will offer first-hand insights into the development, production and marketing that made this film a defining moment in the history of cinema. Areas of focus will be script, visual and audio development, special effects, editing, pre- and post-production, marketing and distribution.
In addition, Gary and Sandy will explore how Star Wars emerged from the mist of 1970s American new wave cinema while offering an expert point of view on the film's enduring legacy.
There will be regular opportunities for Q&A and breaks when participants can talk directly with Gary and Sandy as well as with each other. Be part of an in-depth Star Wars weekend.
