So I met one of my movie heroes yesterday: Douglas Trumbull, the man who designed many of the visual effects on Stanley Kubrick’s 2001: A Space Odyssey, who worked on Close Encounters of the Third Kind with Steven Spielberg and on Ridley Scott’s Blade Runner.
But Doug also directed the ecological sci-fi drama Silent Running, starring Bruce Dern and a trio of robot drones named Huey, Dewey and Louie.
Doug is the guest at the Widescreen Weekend, which is where I met him. I’d written an interview for The Yorkshire Post and the picture shows us commenting on the piece.
