See The Quantum Of Solace Art Director In Los Angeles Today!
(Yesterday now)

Update: I wasn't able to make it myself. If anyone did, please let me know if they said anything about Bond. Thanks! Original post follows.

Sorry for the last minute notice, but if any Angelenos happen to be checking in on the morning of Saturday, Feb. 23, you can see two of the creators of Quantum of Solace's visual style discuss their craft for free today at 2:30PM at the Egyptian Theatre in Hollywood. Art Director Dennis Gassner and Set Decorator Anna Pinnock will be part of an Oscar Nominated Art Directors Seminar this afternoon. The two will screen excerpts of their Academy Award nominated work on The Golden Compass, starring Daniel Craig and Eva Green. The Art Direction on that movie was incredible, and by far its most laudable aspect. Gassner also previously worked with Craig on The Road to Perdition. While the focus will be on The Golden Compass, I can't imagine they'd neglect to mention QoS, as Bond films are sort of a Holy Grail for art directors, thanks largely to the trailblazing work of Sir Ken Adam.

Admission to the event is free.
