Product description

Review

"a refreshing in-the-trenches look at how stuff came together on set in the movie that shaped a generation" - Rolling Stone 

"...a fascinating, engrossing tale of the mad dash that leads to movie magic, a tribute to the passion and drive needed to make cinematic art. ...a magic window into the past that only enhances the originals." - San Francisco Book Review (Five Star Review) 

“A really important release...for all Star Wars fans who want to talk with authority about that production I think this is a book you’ve just gotta get” -  Rebel Force Radio 

“After reading Cinema Alchemist, you will absolutely watch Star Wars and Alien differently, and notice details of the film you haven’t seen in your previous 300 viewings of the films.  That is quite a feat.” - Borg.com

 “A wonderful resource for those interested in the movie business” - Adventures in Poor Taste

“Roger is more than just a set designer and art director, he is a creative builder of visual dreams for films.  Film historians and cinema buffs will want to pick-up this book as part of their film library.” - Retrenders
