College for Creative Studies will host a Toyota Lecture on Design by film and television production artist and CCS Alumnus Tim Flattery on Tuesday, April 6 at 6 p.m. In a landmark and unique career that has spanned over two decades, Tim Flattery is a modern day renaissance man in film and television production art. All the information on the lecture is below and two images of his recent work from “G.I. Joe: The Rise of Cobra” are on the right

From concept artist, costume & creature designer, to futurist & visual effects art director, to overseeing the design and in some cases the full-size construction of custom vehicles for films, including the memorable futuristic craft for “Back to the Future II,” “A.I. Artificial Intelligence” and the dynamic Batmobile for “Batman Forever.”

Since 1988, Flattery has raised the creative bar with his acclaimed design work on such classics, cult and blockbuster films as “Batman
Returns,” “Unbreakable,” “Total Recall,” “Child’s Play III,” “Men in Black,” “X-Men,” “Spiderman II,” “The Chronicles of Riddick,” “Transformers,” and “The Pirates of the Carribean: Dead Man’s Chest,” among others. Although Flattery has firmly established himself in the pantheon of production artists who specialize in Science Fiction/Fantasy and Superhero themed projects, his visionary talents have also played a role in such motion pictures as “Saving Private Ryan,” “The Client,” “Mission Impossible II” and “Flightplan.”

Flattery continues to enhance his already stellar career with the upcoming and highly anticipated genre films “The Green Lantern,” “Creature from the Black Lagoon” and “Real Steel.”

The lecture is free, open to the public, and held at CCS’s Wendell W. Anderson Jr. Auditorium located in the Walter B. Ford II Building on the Walter and Josephine Ford Campus (201 East Kirby, Detroit, MI 48202).
