Web of Stories Announces the Availability of a Series of Videos of Sir Ken Adam Talking Candidly About His Life and Career from Childhood to the Present Day


Sir Ken Adam pioneered the art of production design and created some of the world's most celebrated and iconic sets which include the war room of Stanley Kubrick's Dr. Strangelove and, in 1977, the supertanker set of The Spy Who Loved Me, which became the largest sound set the world had ever seen. Sir Ken Adam paved the way for British and international cinematic design, and has set the standard with a career spanning seven decades and over 75 films.

London, United Kingdom, November 23, 2011 --(PR.com)-- Talking of his early days working on the Bond movies, Sir Ken recollects:

"When, six weeks later, the unit and everybody came, I had three large stages at Pinewood filled with sets, which nobody else had seen, not even a sketch, and I thought, either I’m going to get fired or maybe I’m going to be a hero."

Web of Stories hosts a video archive of Sir Ken Adam's most vivid memories. Approximately six hours of footage has been divided into individual stories which viewers can watch, listen to, comment on, and share with their friends and colleagues. The videos are also free for embedding into personal blogs and websites. Web of Stories invites the public to watch these stories, which include how Sir Ken Adam began his career in production design, his relationship with Stanley Kubrick and his experiences as a young RAF fighter pilot during World War II. Web of Stories also invites the public to record and share their own video stories, not just about how Sir Ken Adam's work may have influenced their lives and views on cinematic design, but on any other topic.
