After huge success with their first Q&A (Interstellar), Soundstage Events return to The Others in Stoke Newington for more insightful fun. On December 4th they welcome Star Wars and The Empire Strikes Back producer Gary Kurtz and DJ Yoda for a Star Wars-themed night. Tickets are available from the link below.
Gary Kurtz – After collaborating with George Lucas on American Graffiti, Gary played a key role in the phenomenal Star Wars as its producer. Of course, he then oversaw the production of The Empire Strikes Back, Gary’s final collaboration with Lucas.
He then worked with Muppet creator Jim Henson on 1982’s The Dark Crystal and Slipstream, which also starred Star Wars’ Mark Hamill.
In this exclusive interview, Gary will largely discuss his role in the making of the first two Star Wars films and his thoughts on the others in the series.
DJ Yoda – Top turntablist DJ Yoda is closely affiliated with Antidote Records, a cutting-edge hip-hop label and has gained many scratch-DJ accolades. A demo mixtape fell into the hands of Antidote Records, who offered to create an official CD mix for release. The result was a popular DJ Yoda’s How to Cut & Paste Mix Tapes album series.
DJ Yoda can be found cutting the Indiana Jones theme with dubstep or The Muppet Show theme with MIA. His shows include film, TV and YouTube samples with visuals that lift his sets to new heights.
