Ep 15: The Man Who Built The Lightsaber Finally Speaks!
For the first time, Oscar-winning production designer & director Roger Christian reveals his own personal voyage: from his earliest work in the British film industry, to his breakthrough contributions on classic masterpieces such as Star Wars, Alien, and Monty Python’s Life of Brian.
On this episode of Moment 2 Moment, Roger takes us inside the manic three months that it took to build George Lucas’ legendary "space opera", and why he was so keen to take on the challenge. From building sets out of recycled airplanes, cameras, and wheelbarrows, to seeing modern children play with toys he designed, Roger Christian gives us a glimpse inside the at times chaotic but always creative world of Star Wars that the public rarely gets to see.
In this candid interview, Roger delves into his relationships with legendary figures George Lucas to Ridley Scott, as well as the secrets of his greatest work. And most personally, how it felt to have his own film (Black Angel) be rediscovered — three decades after the film was purported to have been lost.
