The Men Behind the Mask
Darth Vader is the galaxies most infamous villain. Vader appears in the original film trilogy as a pivotal antagonist whose actions drive the plot of the first three films. At bluedot we gave festival goers an intriguing insight into the creation of world’s most famous character.
Brian Muir spoke about his experience sculpting Vader’s helmet. Brian sculpted the helmet from initial concept sketches by Ralph McQuarrie, and is credited as the man behind the mask. The man inside the mask on the other hand was David Prowse, who wore the suit throughout the original film trilogy.
A chance to get upfront and close with Darth Vader in the most intimate way possible. After an on stage presentation by the pair telling their story as it is, with screen presentations and panels, the audience then got a chance to ask Brian And Dave questions in an interactive Q&A session.
A once in a lifetime opportunity for any Star Wars fan.
