Eden Projection

I had a fabbo time last week with Paul at the Eden Project, where they were showing my second favourite Sci-Fi film ever - Silent Running. It was the most amazing place to see this film - in a geodesic-bio-dome environment for heavens sake! What was even better was there was a live set before the screening by some synth-boffs (Adrian Utley and Will Gregory) a talk about the film by Mark Kermode. Silent running itself was amazing - its actually the first time I've seen it on a very big screen. Theres so much I love about the design and feel of the film, the 1970s pastoral music, the electronic sound effects (made on an ARP 2600), the ideas in it - and Bruce Dern losing at poker to a droid with no face. Here is a clip of the performance in the bio-dome before the film:

Interior Motifs 2

Fast-forward seven years from Captain Scarlet and you have Gerry Anderson's Space 1999, which still looks futuristic to me although it was in fact meant to be going back in time from 2068 to 1999. So thats 2068 - 1999 + 7 = 76, the year it actually debuted, if you add 1

Paul sent me a link to some screen shots from Gerry Anderson's Captain Scarlet series. Check out these beautiful set designs. I want to build a studio like that!
