Congratulations to production designer Scott Chambliss for his nomination by the Art Directors Guild for his work on Tomorrowland! The other nominees for excellence in production design for a feature film in 2015 in the category fantasy film are Dante Ferretti (Cinderella), Edward Verreaux (Jurassic World), Colin Gibson (Mad Max: Fury Road), Rick Carter & Darren Gilford (Star Wars: The Force Awakens). When the nominations were announced, Scott was the first to contact everyone in the art dept. who worked on Tomorrowland to thank them for their contributions. Classy guy! We had a HUGE art dept. which I’ll list at the end of this post! Good luck to us all when the winners will be announced on Jan. 31, 2016 at the awards ceremony at the Beverly Hilton Hotel. A big shout out to Thomas Sanders for his ADG nomination in the category period film for his work on Crimson Peak. I just worked with Tom on Star Trek Beyond, so it is great to see him get nominated again. I feel very priviledged to have worked with many of the other nominees in past films: Dante (Seventh Son), Ed (X-Men 3) and Darren (Tron Legacy). Good luck, gentlemen! Tomorrowland […]
It’s been a while since I’ve been this excited about seeing a movie that I worked on, but I could not tell anybody about it! But here, finally, is the general public’s first look at Tomorrowland as featured in today’s Entertainment Weekly and a newly released teaser trailer by Disney! This sci-fi fantasy movie is a tremendous work of great storytelling, design and craft by a lot of very talented people helmed by director Brad Bird. This is Mr. Bird’s second live action feature film following the success of Mission Impossible – Ghost Protocol (which co-incidentally I also worked on! He must think I’m stalking him!) I loved the Tomorrowland script and enjoyed working with production designer Scott Chambliss who has imagined a beautiful, futuristic utopia to the screen. Looking forward to seeing the final film on the big screen when it is released on May 22, 2015. Visit EW.com for more details on this movie!
