VISUAL FUTURIST: the Art & Life of Syd Mead (video)

V

I’ll be honest with you. I didn’t know who Syd Mead was until he died on December 30th. And now I see that he was responsible for the design work on Tron, Blade Runner and Alien. Holy crap! This is a small bit of a documentary about him, which I can’t find anywhere other than something called a “d . . . v . . . d”. Anyway . . . enjoy!
