Quick Fire Questions - Matt Martin Of Lucasfilm


This week we have Matt Martin of Lucasfilm answering our quick fire questions. Matt is content manager for Lucasfilm's digital channels and also owns his own independent record label called Missing Words Records.

Right, to the questions:
You're stuck in a swamp on Dagobah. What one movie, TV show, album and book would you take?
Movie: Wayne's World, not because it's my all-time favorite movie (that's The Empire Strikes Back) but because it's a movie I could watch over and over and over.
TV show: The Simpsons, it's my favorite show ever and there are 24 seasons of it!
Album: Say Anything - In Defense of the Genre so I'd have something to sing along to.
Book: Harry Potter and the Half Blood Prince… even though it'd be a little weird to only have one book in the series.

If you could invite any three people (alive or not, fictitious or not) to a dinner party, who would they be?
George Lucas, Albus Dumbledore and Deadpool.

What is your favourite John Williams soundtrack?
That's a really tough choice but I'd probably go with the Episode I soundtrack both because it's great and for sentimental reasons.

If you were invisible for a day what would be the first thing you would do?
Wonder around Disneyland after hours to see what goes on.
During the final moments of The Clone Wars season 5 finale.

What is your biggest fear?
Being sent to prison… and scorpions.

What was the most embarrassing moment of your life?
Huh, I'm not sure. I've always been so conservative that I haven't done anything TOO stupid and embarrassing.

Excluding search engines, what three website would you choose if no other websites were available?

Twitter, AintItCool and Newsarama.

Do you have any guilty pleasures?
Horrible food that's slowly killing me.

What are you looking forward to the most in the next six months?
Star Wars Celebration Europe (and my short European vacation that will follow).

What is your most treasured possession?
My phone is definitely my most important possession but my old Luke ESB lightsaber replica is probably my most cherished.

What is your biggest regret?
Missing the first Star Wars Celebration… although if I hadn't missed it I wouldn't have graduated High School.

What are you most proud of?




Some of the ridiculous Star Wars products that I helped get into the world as product developer for StarWarsShop.com -- The Darth Vader Toaster, the Space Slug Oven Mitt, the Millennium Falcon Car Sunshade, etc.

What is your favourite Spielberg movie?
Raiders Of The Lost Ark

Where can people keep in touch or follow you?

Thanks Matt. Very kind of you to take the time to answer our quick fire questions. I really want a Space Slug oven mitt now. Must find one.

Next week we have Amy Ratcliffe from Geekwithcurves.com

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.
