BATTLE BEYOND THE STARS

New World Pictures
Production Designer, Jim Cameron
Valkiri Fighter
Set Design, Robert Bovill

This was Robert's first film set design. It was done for Roger Corman in Los Angeles. The production designer was a young James Cameron, who became famous as a director on the Terminator series and other films such as Aliens and Titanic.

This set, the "Valkiri Fighter," was a "fly by the seat of your pants" design. There were no drawings; it was purely sculptural. We just selected old engine parts, electronic surplus, dryer hoses, etc...and then, with a lot of paint and hot glue, we assembled these crazy spaceships.
