Who Framed Roger Rabbit… 30th Anniversary

After the success of his (now) iconic film Back To The Future (1985), Robert Zemeckis set his sights once more dazzling audiences with Who Framed Roger Rabbit (1988). Before the current generation of motion-capture filled films, the hybridisation of animation and live action film was definitely a rare sight – mainly because of how difficult it was to achieve. However, Zaemeckis took a leap of faith and created a film so unique and special, that it still holds a special place in our hearts 30 years later.

Gods Of Egypt Auction… Walking With Gods

In the world of Gods of Egypt, the pantheon of gods lived among their creations as deities and rulers.

Take a look now at some of the most memorable looks from the deities in the Gods of Egypt Auction.

Gods Of Egypt Auction… Women Of The Nile

Unlike the armored militarism of many of the male gods, the female deities of Gods of Egypt show their power more subtly, incorporating symbols of their might into the fine dresses, crowns, and other ornamental pieces they wear. Naturally, this makes many of the goddess costumes some of the most visually arresting lots in the auction.

Kirk, Lieutenant Nyota Uhura, Dr. Leonard ‘Bones’ McCoy, and the ever-so-logical Mr. Spock quickly catapulted from television series characters to beloved icons.

Star Trek Live Auction… Andy Siegel: Starfleet’s Prop Master

Working as the Prop Master for a major motion picture is a tough job, even when the pieces you’re creating aren’t already iconic. When industry veteran Andy Siegel landed the job for Star Trek Into Darkness, he was not only taking on a sequel to a successful film, but a legacy of props and design that’s now over 50 years in the making. Thankfully, Andy was nice enough to visit memory lane with us and share a bit about what it was like to help equip the Starship Enterprise….
