Aspiring filmmakers and movie buffs have a chance to learn from an experienced visual effects artist in Sturgeon Bay on Wednesday. Craig Newman has worked on huge movies like “Titanic”, “Speed” and “James and the Giant Peach” and he will be discussing his experience in the movie industry at the Sturgeon Bay Library. Laura Kayacan, Adult Services Librarian at Door County Libraries, says Newman will also show some clips from movies that he’s worked.
Newman will be at the Sturgeon Bay Library from 2 to 3 PM on Wednesday. He’ll be back there on Thursday as well when the library shows “Tron”, another movie Newman worked as a scene coordinator. That showing will start at 1 PM. Newman has retired from the movie industry and now lives in Sturgeon Bay.
