Howdy Designer lovers!
Syd Mead is coming to Australia. My mate Paul is organising the Sydney leg and so I thought I’d give a quick shout out and post the details. So if you’re in Sydney, come along, it should be an awesome night!
For those who dont know Syd Mead.. SHAME on you!! Here are the details:
The Syd Mead Australian Tour 2010
Syd Mead is the most celebrated concept artist in the world today.
He was the artist behind some of the most influential science fiction of the 20th century:
BLADE RUNNER, TRON, ALIENS, STAR TREK, 2010 (to name a few).
The tour is being organized in conjunction with the CG Society, and the inaugural event in Sydney is set to be a spectacular visual experience:
On the night of Thursday the 18th of March, the premiere of the award winning film, Visual Futurist: the Art and Life of Syd Mead, will be screened at the Hayden Orpheum Picture Palace in Cremorne.
The screening will be followed by Syd Mead live on stage, interviewed by Jamie Leonarder (The Naked City, FBI / previous host of The Movie Show, SBS).
Syd will be available for signings after the event, and there will be very special limited edition Syd Mead Australian tour t-shirts and dvds on sale.
Come and pay tribute to the man who, for the last half century, has played such a pivotal role in the design of science fiction in film, and who’s genius has inspired countless artists around the world.
Immerse yourself in his world, and meet the man himself.
