In eager anticipation of the UK release of the lavish new STAR WARS STORYBOARDS: THE ORIGINAL TRILOGY hardcover by J.W. Rinzler, published by ABRAMS, AFICIONADO presents a six-day tribute to the incredible art works of the diverse visualists whose key contributions helped bring to life the defining three movies of 1977, 1980 and 1983.
Day Three celebrates Nilo Rodis-Jamero. Starting off as a Padawan to Joe Johnston in the Art Department for the even more ambitious first STAR WARS sequel, THE EMPIRE STRIKES BACK, Rodis-Jamero would soon become an ILM star in his own right with his imagination and sense of heightened visual quality in creating impressive scenic shots for characters and action, as seen with this evocative moment from the Imperial pursuit of the slippery Millennium Falcon, as the trusty Rebel Alliance supporting ship soon escapes their clutches via a nearby asteroid field.
Beyond EMPIRE, Rodis-Jamero's position in the company evolved into other areas, too, becoming one of the costume designers for EPISODE VI, as well as a key participant to the success of the eighties STAR TREK cinematic franchise.
