RIP Dan O'Bannon

I was always impressed by his early film "Dark Star", particularly the incredible and creative art direction on a ridiculously low budget. Still instructive for aspiring film makers is a scene he did in an "elevator shaft" which was nothing more than a hallway, some lights, a forklift, and some random broken toys. You accept the scene due to the selection of camera angles and the way O'Bannon "sells" the effect:

Genius. Inspirational.

Thanks for the tip, Mark. Even knowing the gag, I kept hoping he wouldn't fall down the shaft.
