Up Close and Personal with the Imperial Walker

    Newer Older

    Imperial Walkers are some of the coolest sci-fi creations ever. I heard Lucas got the idea from looking at those giant seaside cranes in the San Francisco bay. If you ever cross the Oakland Bay Bridge, you can see the huge monstrous ironworks marching into the distance.

    I would love to go be on a movie set to take photos. Why hasn't anyone invited me to do this? I don't know... But if there is an awesome movie being made somewhere with really interesting visuals, I hope someone enterprising can get me onto the set! I'll do my best to take some really memorable shots. It's too late for me to get on the Star Wars set, sadly. Besides, I was only 6 when the first one came out, and I didn't know that much about cameras... just light sabers.

      Great view, Trey! I admire SF and all the special effects stuff, models and scenery. It would be fine, to see all the movie production, sets, miniatures, postproduction, for Star Wars movies.
      Show us some more, please.

      Movie sets are interesting, I always dreamed of shooting some as well... Can you imagine shooting the set from 'How the The Grinch stole Christmas' wtih Jim Carrey?

      Nice Trey, but I tend to agree with the Hishaam above, you've taken better pictures than this. The sky is just totally washed out and a spoiler.

      always noticed the extreme similarity on my trips to berkeley, where george conceived his thx movie as a graduate project...your fast eye would have picked up on that instantly, of course...
