“The Last Star Fighter”
Animated Gif’s taken from the pioneering Sci-Fi Adventure Film “The Last Star Fighter” released in 1984. Following in the footsteps of Tron (1982) this was the second film to make extensive use of Computer Graphics; Physical Models replaced by 3d digital renderings – absolutely cutting edge for the time. Interesting to note that the protagonist Gunstar Model was designed by Ron Cobb of Starwars/Alien fame. All animation and graphics were rendered on a Cray X-MP Supercomputer, and in total 27 minutes of footage was created, a mammoth task in the early 80’s.
