THE WINSTON EFFECT:
THE ART AND HISTORY OF STAN WINSTON STUDIO
STAN WINSTON has created many memorable creatures and characters for the cinema, from THE TERMINATOR, PREDATOR, ALIENS, to JURASSIC PARK and EDWARD SCISSORHANDS, and along the way became an owner of four Academy Awards, three British Academy of Film and Television Awards, Two Emmy Awards, and many other awards during his 30 year career. Now, for the first time, a new book called THE WINSTON EFFECT: THE ART AND HISTORY OF STAN WINSTON STUDIO reveals the behind the scenes secrets of Stan's groundbreaking work. This 336 hardcover page book features an extensive array of previously unpublished sketches, production art, and over 500 photographs from the studio archive, in-depth contributions from Stan and all his key creative staff, and information on every film Stan has worked on. The book is written by Jody Duncan, with an introduction by James Cameron.
STAN will appear on the Convention stage at 11:30 A.M. for a special one hour question and answer session, along with a showcase of film clips. STAN will be signing all copies of THE WINSTON EFFECT purchased at the Convention from 12:30 P.M.-3:00 P.M. Below are some excerpts from THE WINSTON EFFECT. The cover to the left, with THE TERMINATOR in the center, will be the copy the Convention will have available for purchase, and retails for $50.00. THE WINSTON EFFECT book cover to the right, with Stan sculpting, is a variant cover edition, which also retails for $50.00, and is the same book, just different cover. There may be some collectors who would like to own both editions, so a special order for the variant cover can be placed by sending an email to email@example.com for an advance order. The Convention will have a large quantity available for purchase of the regular edition of THE WINSTON EFFECT.
