Phil Tippett: Masterclass & Lifetime Achievement Award

August 22 - 9:30pm (EDT)

From the original STAR WARS trilogy to the millennial TWILIGHT SAGA series, by way of ROBOCOP, JURASSIC PARK and STARSHIP TROOPERS, Tippett’s inventive, innovative, unforgettably iconic stop-motion creations have over the decades become universally familiar elements of our collective imagination. Fantasia is proud not only to present the North American premiere of Tippett’s long-awaited personal masterpiece MAD GOD this year, but to honour director and visual effects sorcerer Phil Tippett with a Lifetime Achievement Award, for his original vision and contributions to the advancement of the craft, and to present a masterclass with Tippett, exploring the deeper roots of his art.
