BEACHES

Touchstone Pictures
Academy Award Nomination
Art Direction

Touchstone Pictures came to San Francisco for second unit coverage of the movie "Beaches." They hired Robert for Art Direction and Set Decoration, including propping all of the set-ups shot in San Francisco. Although many scenes were shot, none were expected to make it into this already overshot movie.

However, Director Garry Marshal and veteran Academy Award Winning-Production Designer Al Brenner thought otherwise when they saw the very adorable scene designed by Robert of the two women shopping for a pram. The movie was nominated for an Academy Award for Outstanding Achievement in Art Direction.
