We are delighted to announce that model maker and special effects designer Martin Bower will be attending our Special Assignment convention to talk about his work.
Known by fans for his stunning model and effects work on Space:1999, Martin helped deliver some of the series’ most iconic craft, including the Ultra Probe (Dragon’s Domain) and the Super Swift from The Bringers of Wonder. He also designed and built all the models for the 1975 pilot film, The Day After Tomorrow, including The Altares ‘Lightship’.
Martin has also worked on Blakes 7, Dr Who, The Tomorrow People, Tomorrows World, Horizon and Tripods, and was Supervising Modelmaker on films such as Alien and Flash Gordon.
Martin will be displaying a number of his amazing models at Special Assignment (some of which are pictured here), and will be running a model making workshop with a slide presentation. We look forward to welcoming Martin to the convention and getting a close up view of his work!
SIGN UP TODAY – TICKETS STILL AVAILABLE!
Tickets to Special Assignment start at just £65 per person for one day, or £110 for the whole weekend. We’ve managed to keep the ticket price the same as The Future Is Fantastic! convention in 2015 because we’re a fan club and no one is taking a salary. Saturday-only or Sunday-only tickets do not include the Saturday evening meal or any other refreshments that are included in the weekend ticket.
