Quick Fire Questions - This Week, Artist Kevin Liell

Lucasfilm artist - Kevin Liell
 This weeks quick fire questions are shot at Star Wars artist Kevin Liell. Kevin has done work for Topps Cards, Lucasfilm, and more. Kevin also hosts Lucasfilm's official Star Wars: Trivia World Championship and will be hosting the event at this years Celebration Europe in Germany. Lets fire those questions.

1 You're stuck in a swamp on Dagobah. What one movie, TV show, album and book would you take?
Well, the obvious choice is The Empire Strikes Back. Its the only movie that offers several ways to escape Dagobah, physically, mentally and spiritually.

2 If you could invite any three people (alive or not, fictitious or not) to a dinner party, who would they be?
Jesus, Mohammed and Buddha, we can talk and try to work out the real problems of the World.

 3 What is your favourite John Williams soundtrack?
Binary Sunset Theme, when Luke is watching the suns set. That theme really captures the feeling of what he is going through. He is seeing the Suns set for the last time and his life is about to change- and he wants that change. A powerful moment.

4 If you were invisible for a day what would be the first thing you would do?
Crime (Come to think of it, that's not a bad answer - Rob)

5 When was the last time you cried?
It's been a while

6 What is your biggest fear?
Failure, I hate getting it wrong.

7 What was the most embarrassing moment of your life?
When I was in the Bosnia with the U.S. Army, I got in an argument with my boss and I threw my rifle at him, in front of my entire platoon. I looked like a jerk, but I was 22 so its ok now and nobody's interviewed him for The Bearded Trio.

8 Excluding search engines, what three website would you choose if no other websites were available?
starwars.com, theforce.net and trektoday.net (Yes, I'm also a Trekkie.)

9 Do you have any guilty pleasures?
No, if they caused guilt, they aren't pleasures, they would be addictions.

10 What are you looking forward to the most in the next six months?

Hosting the Star Wars Trivia World Championship at Celebration Europe II, going to back to Germany, and whatever the 501st is cooking up for CEII.

11 What is your most treasured possession?
I have a painting I made of the closing Throne Room scene of ANH signed By: Lucas, Hamill, Fisher, Daniels Baker and Mayhew. People always offer to buy it and I always say "no."

12 What is your biggest regret?
I should have gone to college right out of high school, but didn't.

13 what are you most proud of?
My daughter, she's awesome.

14 What is your favorite Spielberg movie?
"Raiders of the Lost Ark."

15 Where can people keep in touch or follow you?

Did Paul Freeman Accidentally Eat A Fly In Raiders of the Lost Ark?

The Famous Indiana Jones Fly In Belloq's Mouth Scene.  Did It Really Happen? I've always wondered if Paul Freeman unintentionally consumed a fly in this scene in Raiders of the Lost Ark?  It's the scene where Indiana Jones shouts down to Bellosh...I mean Belloq and threatens to blow up the ark.  Did a fly go in his mouth?

I remember watching this scene back in the early eighties and my ten year old mind thought he definitely had a snack while filming.  I recall talking about 'flygate' in my school playground at the time and the general consensus with my friends was that Freeman definitely had a sneaky snack.

Paul Freeman talks about the famous 'fly' scene in an interview with TheIndyExperience.com and settled 'flygate:'

This is a bit of a dicey question so don’t get too upset. (Laughs) A movie’s always got bloopers in it, some have a lot, and some only have three or four. And the most remarkable blooper was right before the opening of the Ark scene.…

Star Wars VII Movie Poster - Every End Is A New Beginning

Just saw this Star Wars VII movie poster on Kyle Newman's Facebook feed.  The poster is by Lyndon Berresford and Paul Bateman. 
I am loving this.  Who do you think the two characters are?  Lando and Leia?  Han and Leia's children?

Have you seen other Star Wars VII movie posters?  Let me know.

Pinewood Studios To Expand To The Usa

BBC News have reported that Pinewood Studios are to expand to the USA.  This is great news for the famous studio that is rich in movie history.


UK film studio Pinewood Shepperton has announced plans to build its first sound stages in the United States. The Pinewood Atlanta complex will be built on 288 acres of land south of Atlanta, Georgia, as a joint venture with a US investment company. Georgia has been among the US states drawing film-making away from Hollywood with tax incentives in recent years. The deal is the latest sign of expansion at Pinewood, the home of the James Bond franchise. Earlier this month it announced a joint venture with a Chinese media group, potentially giving it access to the fast-growing Chinese market.
