Brian, this is just trivia, but can you remember what pieces you worked on in chronological order for 'The Star Wars'?

I'm not just talking about pieces of the Trooper armour, I mean
did Vader come first, last, in the middle, etc...

Just would be interested.

Thanks a barrel load.
:cheers

The order was as follows:-

1. Stormtrooper Amour (sculpt in clay)
2. Carving plaster sections of Stormtrooper armour and C3P0 ( I was working on both according to what section was delivered to me from Plaster Shop)
3. Darth Vader Mask (sculpt in clay)
4. After Mask was moulded and cast in plaster I sharpened it up and then sculpted the helmet over the plaster mask.
5. Darth Vader's Armour ( clay sculpt on full sized figure of Dave Prowse in plaster)
6. CZ - 3 (scuplt in clay)
7. Death Star Droid (sculpt in clay)

I hope this clarifies it for you,

Brian :cheers

Brian, was the armor sculpted using the base of the faceplate as a guide or just the neck of the bodycast of Prowse? Thanks for the info.

The Darth Vader armour was sculpted on the figure of Dave Prowse to the neck line. The mask/helmet was not in place at the time.

Thanks Brian.

by the way - it might be time to update your IMDb credits:
http://www.imdb.com/name/nm0611333/

I don't see Indiana Jones or A New Hope on there!

I was interviewed by a lovely young lady ( I had my wife's permission to say this :wink: ) at Memorabilia and was surprised to be asked about my acting career :conf .(should have been credited to the actor Brian Dominic Muir )
IMDB credited me with several films as an actor and have only credited me with 3 out of the 60 films I've worked on as a sculptor.
I contacted them last year to have these details amended but to no avail.

Brian,

I have an IMDb Pro account. I'd be happy to update the info for you.
If you have a list of the films and roughly what you did (sculpt / fabricate/ etc)
I can submit the changes - and also recommend they remove your
acting credits.

cheers

I did sign up and they sent an email to confirm they would look into the changes but never made them.

I will have another try - thanks for offer of help,

Brian

Just to let you know Brian, the IMDb are very sceptical about self-submission
data - as in information / credits people sumbit about themselves
(probably because of the amount of wannabes adding their names
to films they never stepped foot on the set of!!!).

There is no reason you shouldnt resubmit the data - but what would help is if you posted your list here and those of us with IMDb membership (probably a good few of us) also submitted the data - that way it would back up your submission the fact that the same data was corroborated from other sources
(different I.P. numbers in different countries)

anyway - its only a suggestion - and you might not be hellbent on getting the credits up. Which I would understand.
