Martin Dew the indulgence show

Martin Dew, the ex-director of international sales and marketing at Lucasfilm THX, will be opening the gates to the Lucasfilm estate to provide visitors with a first-hand perspective of what goes on behind the silver screen during his live seminars. These will be taking place in the Epernay Suite at The Indulgence Show, the new audio and lifestyle event taking place at the Novotel Conference Centre in Hammersmith from 14-16 October 2016.

Martin will be hosting a 30-minute talk followed by a 15-minute Q&A to take attendees on a journey through his career and provide an insider’s view on the golden age of Lucasfilm, how it all started, what George Lucas was trying to achieve and how the businesses he started were there to service the industry. He will also be discussing the basic principles of THX, the high-fidelity audio/visual reproduction standards for movie theatres, its importance to the industry and how the standards created by THX became universally employed throughout the worlds of cinema and home cinema.

Martin’s career has seen him work at Lucasfilm during the theatrical re-release of the original Star Wars and the creation for the three prequels. He is also a writer for Home Cinema Choice and as an actor, he has appeared in a number of box office and television hits including War Horse, Mad Men and G.I Joe.

Carrying on with the Star Wars theme, UK Garrison, one of the foremost Star Wars costuming groups in the UK, will be acting as visitor guides and will be bringing its own original style and presence to the event.  

Vernon Hamblin, producer of The Indulgence Show, says, “Everyone know Stars Wars but many may not know much about Lucasfilm, even though it is one of the world's leading film and television production companies. Having an insider such as Martin share his stories at the show will provide an insight into what goes on behind the screen. In addition, his knowledge of THX will provide informative content that will increase our visitors’ knowledge of the understanding of key products and principles within the cinema sector. We are excited to be welcoming him at The Indulgence Show and it will continue our theme of offering our visitors an informative experience with speakers and content they can relate to.”

The Indulgence Show is a new audio and lifestyle event aimed at visitors who are interested in educating themselves, acquiring, experiencing and enjoying music and all the benefits and pleasures it brings to their lives.  They want to pamper themselves with the finer things in life, and consider audio, home entertainment and headphones/portable audio to be elements that can enhance their wellbeing.  They are also happy to indulge their varied passions and treat themselves to high quality, luxury products such as watches, cars, motorised and recreational vehicles, wines, spirits, craft beer, hand-made chocolates etc. that make their lives more enriching, fun and enjoyable.

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.

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.…

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.
