Princess Anne Theatre, BAFTA, 195 Piccadilly, London W1J 9LN
While Stanley Bielecki may not be a household name to film fans, the smash hits he helped to market certainly are: Rocky Horror Picture Show, Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid, Star Wars, Legend and Alien to name but a few. Fans and friends from Mel Brooks to Star Wars producer Gary Kurtz rave about the marketing genius of Bielecki who worked with many major studios as a marketing consultant and commissioned some of the great film stills that remain iconic classics.
For this event, Bleiecki's friends and former collaborators including Kurtz (producer Star Wars and Empire Strikes Back), Pierre Spangler (producer, Superman), Sandy Lieberson (producer, Performance and formerly president of production at 20th Century Fox) will join us to celebrate some of his best commissions. Throughout the evening we will explore the art of the great film still and effective film marketing in the hopes of learning from a living legend of the craft.
Tickets are free for BAFTA Members and £7 to the public.
