On October 12, Del Ray Books will release a new book, The Making of Star Wars: The Empire Strikes Back, by J.W.

In The Making of Star Wars: The Empire Strikes Back, items from the film’s production that had been left in archives boxes for more than 30 years are revealed, illustrating this collectible book for Star Wars fans. It also includes an interview with George Lucas and the author.

Ya está online la convocatoria de VIDA 13.0, el Concurso Internacional de Arte y Vida Artificial, que durante los últimos doce años ha venido premiando proyectos artísticos desarrollados con medios tecnológicos que ofrecen planteamientos innovadores a la investigación de la vida artificial.

Puede tratarse de proyectos que se basen en sistemas que emulan, imitan o especulan sobre la noción de vida a través de las investigaciones y las tecnologías actuales. Estos sistemas pueden presentar atributos de agencia y autonomía, que muestren un comportamiento propio, que sean dinámicos, reaccionen a su entorno y evolucionen, y que cuestionen las fronteras entre lo vivo y lo no vivo, entre la vida sintética y la vida orgánica. El Concurso cuenta con 40.000 Euros en Premios.

Douglas Trumbull, director of Silent Running and Special Effects Supervisor for 2001: A Space Odyssey, is readying a documentary about his time with Stanley Kubrick.

Called Beyond the Infinite: The Making of  a Masterpiece, Trumbull’s film draws on his own experience, a decade of interviews conducted by David Larson, and a wealth of original production materials and stills.

There’s a trailer for the film now, which does more to advertise how the final film will be created than to promote the final product.The detail in this undertaking is amazing. The filmmakers are literally crawling into never-before-seen-images.
