STOUT tribute to HARRYHAUSEN: thumleft

http://mundomonstruo.blogspot.com/2009/02/william-stout-tribute-to-ray.html





Stout visited the museum of the spanish painter JOSE SEGRELLES:



Interview (in english):

http://www.josegrelles.com/2008/11/dilogos-con-william-stout-y-c-durbn.html

The man declared being amazed by Spain's infrastructure:

Quote :
I visited Spain (Barcelona & San Sebastian) during Franco's reign in 1970, then lived in Madrid in 1980 while designing the "Conan the Barbarian" movie. So it had been 28 years since my last trip there.

A lot had changed. In 1970 Spain used to be sort of like Europe's Mexico; a cheap and sunny place to head for your vacation. Not any more! Since joining the EU Spain has changed dramatically. It is now a first rate world class nation. Its travel infrastructure (airlines, trains, buses, highways, subways) is much better than that of the United States. The treatment we got on our bus trips was better than treatment in First Class on any American airline. Free movies, meals and drinks on a bus! Nicer seats, too! Everywhere we went it felt like the decisions the Spanish government made were based upon the question, "What would be the best thing to do in regards to our people?" (as opposed to the US, where the question seems to be "What would be the best thing to do in regards to our corporations?").

Well, dunno what to say, really... I think none of us here really think that the government ever thinks "What would be the best thing to do in regards to our people?", honestly Laughing

Also, a lot of spanish people really worship USA way of being. Last government before the actual, for example. Well, it's good to know things from other people who come here and see things that we can't see because we have assumed them as common. It only happens when traveling.

With which film directors would you most like to work?

WILLIAM STOUT: Clint Eastwood, Terry Gilliam, Peter Jackson, Ron Howard, Guillermo del Toro, Robert Rodrigues, Quentin Tarentino, Kevin Costner (I nearly worked with Kevin and production designed “Dances With Wolves”; my Antarctica painting exhibition took precedence instead), the Wachowski Brothers. If you want to see what a movie would look like if I directed it, watch “Road to Perdition”. That’s exactly how I visually tell stories and compose shots. “The Hitcher” (which I storyboarded) is very close to my visual style (I wouldn’t have killed the girl, though).

The white background surrounding the sabretooth tiger there looks like a hardboiled egg, even the yellow/red-orange looks like the yoke and a bite/tool mark exposing it. Laughing

on Monday, June 23rd, William Stout said

I designed The Predator (My friend Rick Baker brought me in on this. I was really happy to get the gig; not so much because it was designing a monster but because it was my first work on a union film, a nice breakthrough, career-wise). Stan's people built the suit based on my designs and plussed it by adding that cool four-pronged mouth idea.

Yeah. Thing is Stout made the final design from which the very same suit was based on but he wasn't credited -you can read everywhere the designer was Stan Winston or "Winston's studio" at most. Maybe because they are refering to the head (and specifically the complex mouth which was the most characteristic thing of the bug) which was designed by Stan Winston. But it's weird Stout wasn't credited for his work in the body (and surely the gadgets as they were inluded in the suit as one piece)

And I think RON COBB also was involved at some point. So, it was like a hundred of artists and designers involved in the design and developement of the creature. You are right, would be great to know the whole story of the design -so many stupid books of all these franchises and none of them any good...-

I received and email from DONALD F. GLUT

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Donald_F._Glut

http://www.donaldfglut.com/credits.html

who wrote some episodes of the cartoon DINO-RIDERS of the 80's. I asked him is Stout was actually involved in the project and he confirmed:

Quote :
I think Bill was one of the designers. Comic-book artist Frank Brunner also worked on that show.

Frank Brunner worked in some Conan comics (I think the excellent "Scarlet Cidatel") and also was one of the several artist Milius had in mind to work of the CTB movie before Stout was finally hired.

Some examples of the amazing talent of Brunner:

http://tapirr.livejournal.com/1033196.html?thread=9149420


BTW, Donald F. Glut also was the writter of the first minicomis that came with the first "Masters of the Universe" figures in 1981. He was the one who conveived He-Man as a barbarian (forget about the Prince Adam stuff from the later cartoon).

Thats interesting, Turd. Dino-Riders was a decent series and the toys for their time were high quality.

Frank Brunner is also a Frazetta fan? His female form drawing seems to indicate that I guess.

I guess Brunner likes Frazetta very much, yes. But from Stout to Frank Cho, who doesn't?

Stout made the designs for the aliens in the 1986 so-so remake "INVADERS FROM MARS" directed by Tobe "Chainsaw" Hooper. The Alien boss was this piece of shit:




And then the evil Alien boss from the "Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles" cartoon of 1987:

HAHA Krang, yeah.

Although the brain alien does resemble the Predator upper cranium, even has that ring like thing thats extends from the browridges all the way around the head.

Except on the Preds the dreadlock-like hair extends out from underneath:

STOUT has made some concept art for Guillermo Del Toro's "AT THE MOUNTAIN OF MADNESS" project, based on Lovecraft's novel:

Will Stout did this:

Designed 12 "Factasaurus" bumpers for the "DINK THE LITTLE DINOSAUR" Saturday morning animated series; also painted background and titles.



That "DINK" series was a total rip-off of "THE LAND BEFORE TIME" movie which by the way was hugely inspired on Stout.

That "Land before..." spawned a series of vomitive and never ending sequels of amazing success thinking they were so extremely bad it gave cancer to a whole generation.

The later Disney movie "DINOSAUR" was also a total rip off of "THE LAND BEFORE TIME".

And Stout also worked on that Disney one.

Stout start collecting E.C. comics ("Tales from the Crypt" and so) in 1968. All that artwork surely influenced him hugely and that can be seen in his work in the funny "RETURN OF THE LIVING DEAD" movie.

CONCEPT ART of Stout for his S&S movie (he himself wrotte the script) "KAIN OF THE DARK PLANET":





To Stout's upset, his script was heavily modified and turned into that very bad Kurosawa's "Yojimbo" knockoff, retitled "THE WARRIOR AND THE SORECERESS". And guess what. There was NO sorceress in the whole story. Laughing

What there was, was a girl with 4 reasons to ignore the fact of the stupid title:

http://4.bp.blogspot.com/_-h21a4dOz48/SiiBR2RKfvI/AAAAAAAABR0/0Xfqddm5M_E/s320/warrior+and+the+sorceress+08.jpg

This thingy had David I-like-bizarre-sex-Bill Carradine as the main star:

http://3.bp.blogspot.com/_-h21a4dOz48/SiiBEWJ3UZI/AAAAAAAABRs/gLGGrK9MmQ0/s1600-h/warsorceress6.jpg

In the poster he was transformed into a Schwarzenegger-like ultra-muscled warrior, then in the movie he was allways dressed with that black coat to not show he wasn't the same guy than in the Conan knocking-off poster.

See previous posts of this same thread for more info of this movie-thingy. Wink
