A film legend visits Switzerland: Robert Watts has been one of the most important players in the film industry since 1960. At that time he started as Production & Location Manager, for the James Bond movie “You Only Twice” (1967) and for Kubrick’s “2001: A Space Odyssey” (1968).

Watts was employed by producer Gary Kurtz as production supervisor on “Star Wars Episode IV: A New Hope”. He then enjoyed a long collaboration with George Lucas and Lucasfilm, working as associate producer on “The Empire Strikes Back”, Return of the Jedi”, “Raiders of the Lost Ark”, “Indiana Jones and the Temple of Doom” and “Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade”. He also worked on other Steven Spielberg-presented productions including as producer on “Who Framed Roger Rabbit” and “An American Tail: Fievel Goes West”, and with Spielberg’s long-term producer Frank Marshall on Marshall’s second feature as director, “Alive”.

We are very proud to welcome this legend of the movie industry!
