Joe Alves - Legendary Production Designer on Jaws and Close Encounters
For this episode, episode 19, I’ve returned to Jaws. If you don’t already know my work… from 2006 to 2014 I created some feature length documentaries, or filmumentaries as I called them on some of my favourite films. Inside Jaws is still available for FREE on vimeo.
So, last weekend here in February 2021, I spoke to legendary production designer Joe Alves. He collaborated with Steven Spielberg on a number of projects going back to Steven’s years in television. I spoke to him about his origins in the industry as well as his time on Jaws and Close Encounters of the Third Kind.
Joe has a book called “Joe Alves, Production Designer” it’s written by Dennis L Prince with a foreword by effects artist Greg Nicotero.
