Absolutely awesome blast from the past video from
the series “Master of Fantasy” focusing on visionary genius,
American film director, special effects supervisor, and inventor
Douglas Trumbull.

This episode of the docu series, goes indepth into Douglas’s career, everything from his visual effects for such iconic
science fiction films as “2001 A Space Odyssey”, “Silent Running”
and “Close Encounters Of The Third Kind” to name a few.

His fascination with Disney and sci-fi movies lead to not only creating the first film about “Virtual Reality”, but also pioneering many theme park and simulator experiences such as
“Back To The Future The ride”, with his ride park corporation founded in the late 1980’s. From sci-fi special effects to virtual reality and beyond, this video is a must watch!

Science fiction is a remarkable device for looking at the human creature, and into the human condition. Science Fiction may be one of the last places in our society where the philosopher can roam just as freely as he chooses. — Gene Roddenberry
