On this day in 1980, The Empire Strikes back received it’s World premiere……
On this day in 1968, i was born…….
And, on this day, the very final model created for ESB:R is being filmed. Just a few finishing touches to the miniature set, like straightening out the ceiling lights and getting the Falcon into the correct position, and it’s ready to go. The miniature will be mixed in with the original set in post, which is why you can see certain uncompleted sections of the model.
We are so close to the end now. After this, all that is left are the Wampa shots. The mouth mechanism has been sorted, so filming the Wampa is back on. 🙂 Fingers crossed that the completed version will hold up on camera and work in the final version.
