Anton Furst was a cinematic visionary.

Thirty years ago today, the production designer tragically took his own life at the age of 47.

He’s one of my greatest influences, so I thought I’d write a brief history about him alongside some photos, drawings, and interview excerpts. Image
His production design for Tim Burton's Gotham City made an early and indelible impact on me.

"It was as if hell had erupted through the pavements and kept growing."
– Anton Furst Image
As a 10-year-old sitting in a suburban cinema, #Batman89 was my first introduction to the dark beauty of gothic, futurist, and brutalist architecture. Gotham was scarier than the Joker, more mysterious than Bruce Wayne, and more beguiling than Vicki Vale. I wanted to live there. Image

How likely is intelligent life to exist in our galaxy? Why, hello Drake Equation, let's have a conversation!

I've always heard this is a great exercise to have over cocktails or at late night parties. A holiday week is perfect! Artist: @alancraddock01 #NfoLD #Astrobiology #Alien Image
What does this even mean? It's an equation to broadly estimate how many intelligent civilizations exist within our galaxy right now that we can communicate with. In this case, N = how many of those civilizations exist! How about those other terms?
R* = Average rate of star formation
Fp = Fraction of stars that have planets
Ne = Average # of planets that can chemically develop life
Fl = Do they actually develop life?
Fi = Develop intelligent life?
Fc = Develop advanced technology?
L = How long do they broadcast signals?

At 11am, a 55 year old plumber had his attention grabbed by a strange noise & a gleaming silver "brighter than chrome" #UFO landing in his yard.

Little did he know, spacemen were about to deliver him breakfast.

#UFO #UFOtwitter
The space craft seemed to hover above the ground, rather than touch fully.

Joe described the craft to be 12 feet in height by 20 feet diam. There were no windows or seams on the build either, just a strange electrical hum.

#UFO #UAP #UFOtwitter
A hatch opened on the side, revealing the dark interior with instrument panels and 3 #Alien beings.

The beings were described as:
- Italian looking
- Very smooth skin
- 5ft, 125 lbs
- piercing eyes
- black outfits w/ no zippers or buttons

Among the collection of #paranormal stories Bill claims during his time in the British Military - there is 1 that definitely stands out.

While on watch one night, Bill witnessed a mass abduction take place at his base camp.

#UFO #UAP Image
Around 9pm, Bill & a few soldiers noticed a strange orange mist coming towards them.

Thinking it was a simulated gas attack, they retrieved gas masks but when they returned they were surprised to see everyone at the camp was fast asleep.

#UFO #UFOtwitter #aliens Image
Bill and a fellow solider went back on watch & soon saw a bright light & more smoke approach them from the forest.

As if turned in to Zombies, all the sleeping soldiers suddenly arose & began walking in unison towards the light.

Nurse Doreen Kendall arrived at work & began her shift like she always did.

While attending to an agitated patient, she thought it would be nice if she opened the window for them - to her surprise a large, bright #UFO was on the other side.

#UAP ImageImage
Doreen described the #UFO as 🛸:

- a huge "Saturn-shaped object"

- 50 feet in length

- bottom of the craft was silvery like metal with a bowl shape

- top of the craft was a dome shape made of glass

- light came from the top making it easy to see inside

#UAP #Ufosighting Image
As Doreen stood fearlessly in awe, she could make out 2 masked figures inside the bright floating #UFO.

She described them as 6 feet tall wearing tight fitting suits & they were busy looking at what seemed to be control displays and instrument panels.

Astronomers found a gas in #Venus's clouds that could signal #alien life… Image
#Venus' carbon-dioxide-rich atmosphere and high temperatures make the planet's surface inhospitable to life. But new research suggests the clouds surrounding Venus could harbor microbial life.

#LifeOnVenus #space
A new study found traces of #Phosphine — a gas typically produced by anaerobic microbes on Earth — in the upper reaches of #Venus's clouds. The researchers said the phosphine's origin "could be unknown photochemistry or geochemistry, or possibly life."

@MALTSCHLITZMANN, @KevinPetker, @rpg_solo We Came In Peace Prelude. A thread. #indiegame #solorpg #horror #alien #whogoesthere #ttrpg #weirdfiction #pulp

You came in peace, just as you did countless times before. You offered relief from pain, a cure for chaos. (1/x)
Through your probes, you heard their cries of anguish and conflict. Your duty compelled you to answer their pleas. Unlike all the times before, something went terribly wrong. You crashed into the unforgiving ice. Most of you was lost in the disaster. (2/8)
The people struggled and fought. You thought your first encounters were your fault. You committed horrible crimes in your confused panic. You struggled to hold yourself together and grasp your identity. You thought your lack of control and broken memories were to blame. (3/8)

While fishing with his dog one night, Alfred noticed lights in the forest which seemed to get closer.

Eventually 2 small #alien beings approach him from where the lights were & they invited him back to their #UFO.

Alfred accepted. ImageImage
Alfred described the #alien beings as:

- 4 feet in height

- Thin limbs

- Pale-green helmet with black visor

- Pale-green coveralls

- No obvious buttons, zippers or fasteners on their clothing. Image
Once on board Alfred noticed an octangular shaped room which seemed to be made with only 1 piece of metal.

The #Alien beings examined him & asked how old he was.

Alfred stated he was turning 77, the Aliens told him:

“You can go! You are too old & infirm for our purpose!” Image

In 1947, an Italian artist was painting near a creek when he noticed a 30ft long disc-shaped #ufo in front of him with 2 humanoid figures.

The humanoid #aliens 👽 were described as:

- Wearing blue coveralls with red belt & red collars

- 3 ft in height

- Large round head with helmet

- Skin looked to be greenish colored

- Large dark eyes

- No eyebrows or eyelashes

#ufo #ufosighting #paranormal ImageImage
After being hit with the strange thin vapor, the now confused artist watched the two #aliens approach him, examine his painting & easel then made their way back to their #UFO before taking off.

When the artist came to, he noticed his easel had vanished. 🛸 Image

Abrimos hilo sobre increíbles #maquetas de sets de #cine, un arte tan antiguo como actual y fundamental en el 7º arte.
Comenzamos con esta recreación detallada de Manhattan para #EscapeFromNewYork (1981) del maestro John Carpenter, para la secuencia inicial y tomas aéreas.
#hilo ImageImageImage
Pocas maquetas tan impresionantes y efectivas como esta reconstrucción de Gotham City para el #Batman de Tim Burton (1989). Mi Batman favorito, por cierto (sí, ya sé que soy minoría). El nivel de detalle y la luz son alucinantes.
#cine #Gotham #HiloDeCine ImageImageImage
Esta genial recreación de una calle de Nueva York y parte de Central Park para #Ghostbusters (1984) me parece una delicia. Contaba con coches teledirigidos y estaba a la escala del traje de Marshmallow Man que debía llevar un actor. Maravilla.

Aprovechando que parece que estamos viendo la luz al final del túnel del #confinamiento, voy a recomendar PELÍCULAS que se desarrollan (casi) por completo en un #ÚnicoEscenario y dónde poder verlas. Abro #HILO.

Pd.: Hay más encerraditos de los que pensáis 👇 Image
#ÚltimaLlamada de Joel Schumacher.

Disponible en @MovistarPlus.

Infravalorada por muchos pese a ser de las últimas grandes de su director. Podéis aprender muchos detalles de ella en el @aquihaydragones #10 de la mano de @rodrigocortes 👇 Image
Hablando de @rodrigocortes, no puede faltar la obra maestra #Buried (#Enterrado).

Aplaudida en #Sundance, ganadora de 3 Goya y disponible en @MovistarPlus, quizá fuese la peli más valiente del 2010.

Os dejo un @Cinemascopazo, en la que la analizaron 👇

I love a good Director’s cut, but I’m struggling to think of any that are better than the theatrical release. There’s Blade Runner, and the Donner Superman II cut. Other than that...
I think mostly, for fans, it’s just interesting to see another version of the film, even if it’s not as good. That Thing You Do is 40 mins longer in the extended cut, as long as The Godfather, and though not better, it’s good to spend more time in that world.
Same for Aliens. Those 17 extra minutes don’t really add anything, but they’re great to watch if you love the original. Ridley Scott’s directors cut of Alien is SHORTER than the theatrical version. And it has an extra scene! He “cut out the boring bits.” #alien #aliens

While Barney drove, Betty noticed a bright erratically moving star in the sky..

she convinced Barney to pull over for a better look..

#UFO #abduction #Abductees #paranormal #aliens ImageImage

An odd shape with flashing multi-coloured lights was revealed when Betty looked through a pair of binoculars toward the luminous object that seemed to be following them.

Barney had a hard time agreeing until he noticed its unusual movements around the sky.

The 1561 Celestial Phenomenon over Nuremberg

was an aerial battle which occurred at 4 am above a mass of frightened men and woman as hundreds of flying spheres & rods fought intensely with each other for over an hour until they became fatigued and fell to the earth.

#ufo #Alien ImageImage
Ive attached the English translation of the very lengthy Newspaper write-up recalling the event that occurred 📖 Image
⚠️correction (edit button pls): the 2nd image is actually from Basal, Switzerland in 1566 when a similar UFO phenomenon happened over the period of 3 days!

Inicio un hilo en el que iré incluyendo los videojuegos que vaya terminando este año 2020. Seguramente haya muchos que habré comenzado el año anterior, e incluso antes, pero lo importante es cuando se termina. ✌️

¡Vamos allá! 🎮🎮🎮
World of Illusion - Mega Drive Mini

Lanzado en 1992 para la consola de #SEGA, este cartucho de #MegaDrive fue probablemente el primer videojuego cooperativo que jugué en mi vida. Y qué mejor forma de comenzar el año rejugándolo y recordando viejos momentos de mi infancia. 🙂 Image
Luigi's Mansion - Nintendo 3DS

Original de #GameCube en 2001, #Nintendo nos sorprendería con una subsaga del universo #Mario que introduce nuevas mecánicas fuera de las plataformas. La verdad es que lo he disfrutado mucho y con ganas de continuar la saga. 😌 Image

In honor of the #Alien 40th anniversary - we couldn’t get tickets 🙁- that time we made our then-3y old Xenomorph costume and went to Disneyland.
I am *waiting* for my daughter to fit in this outfit.
Before we had him, I was very pregnant on Halloween and we did a whole couple costume thing and marched in the NYC Halloween parade. It was very gory, but based on these plushies. I wasn’t allowed to wear the chestburster into Disneyland. No gory costumes. Bummer.

#GobekliTepe‘s monumental T-pillars are actually giant #anthropomorphic sculptures. Got to admit that in the beginning of my work there, more than 12 yrs ago, I found it quite ... challenging to recognize this likeness. Until we finally excavated the 'hands & loincloth' part ...
Of course #NevaliCori‘s pillars were already known for some time, complete with hands and stola-like garments. But their abstracted and stylised appearance (still impressively expressionistic to me, by the way) made it a bit of a challenge to easily accept their human shape.
Why am I telling all this? Because there is another find which early on helped me better seeing and understanding this human likeness. I am, of course, talking about the so-called #Kilisik-sculpture found near #Adiyaman in Turkey in the 1960s.
