|"On 'Dune' I was employed by Producer Raffaella de Laurentiis as the
Senior Special Effects Supervisor, in charge of all physical, pyrotechnic, atmospheric
and special engineering projects.
This included wire rigs and full scale moving sections of the sand worm.
Sections that required actors to perform on, or alongside.
I also supervised the physical effects (i.e. wind and sandstorm effects)
on all the model shooting of the sand worm, which Carlo Rambaldi's crew created.
Naturally I had a great international crew, including Frederico Farfan
and his merry band of Mexican floor effects technicians.
John Stirber, assisted me with the project of flying the Baron, and I had
a really talented bunch of English and Spanish boys assisting in all the tasks that
we had to tackle on this very complex production."
