9780752225852: The Making of The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy: The Filming of the Douglas Adams Classic

The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy is one of the most eagerly anticipated film events of 2005. A much yearned for project of Douglas Adams, it has taken many years to bring the Galaxy to life on screen and this interpretation of the classic novel will be groundbreaking. Starring Sam Rockwell as Zaphod, Mos Def as Ford Prefect, Zooey des Chanel as Trillian, Martin Freeman as Arthur, Bill Nighy as Slartisbartfast and John Malkovich as Humma Kuvala, a new character created by Douglas especially for the movie; The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy draws on a refreshing mix of CGI technology and state of the art puppeteering from Jim Henson's Creature Workshop. With a loving attention to detail, Garth Jennings and Nick Goldsmith - the film's director and producer - create the wit, intelligence and sheer inventiveness of Douglas' writing. In The Making of The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy, Robbie Stamp will reveal the craft of the making of the film. From the emphasis throughout on making real sets and real creatures, Robbie Stamp, with exclusive access, interviews many of the people involved in the film's production. Storyboards, sketches, never-before-seen artwork, the making of The Heart of Gold, The Vogons, the Guide itself and of course making and 'being' Marvin, will create a must-have companion to the film. With 400 illustrations and photographs, plus a wealth of insider jokes and cultural cross-references, this is the book old and new fans of Hitchhiker's have been waiting for.
