Extremely interesting and very visual. This was an eye opening film about not only Syd Mead's background and experience but also his inner most thought processes and approach to the artistic challenges he has conquered.
His credibility as a powerhouse of creativity, imagination, concept and final design is reinforced by the testimonials from some of the biggest names in the film industry.
It is visually stimulating, educational, and would recommend this to anyone who is a fan of sci-fi, and to anyone interested in getting into the industrial design or motion picture industry.
