Not much to tell. I didn’t work there, but the head of security for Warner Bros back then was a family friend. We got to spend a lot of time driving a golf cart around the lot, seeing various sets, meeting actors, and nothing was off-limits since he was the security chief. We saw a few cool things over a few years, most notably the Blade Runner street set right after they finished shooting (Since the film had not even released yet, I had no way of knowing what it would become, or I would have, uh, “borrowed” one of the Syd Mead-designed street props!) We hung out on the set of Dukes of Hazard (cast was super nice and seemed to be having a lot of fun), and met Lindsay Wagner (the Bionic Woman herself! She was very nice and and we talked a while), met Rachel Ward (cold) and Richard Chamberlain (meh) on the Thorn Birds set. Saw a bunch of other forgettable tv pilot sets and casts and such, but nothing too notable.
The Tippett gig was a short-lived and not so fun period in '89. The earthquake hit then and my commute was hell the whole time, along with generally “unpleasant” work hours. Best thing I learned there was that movie vfx work was not for me. Still a great experience, but not one I’d want to repeat.
