Geektown Radio 98: Hacksaw Ridge Production Designer Barry Robison, UK TV News & UK TV Air Date Info!

We’re a little bit late this week, but to make up for it, we have a brilliant interview with Barry Robison, the Production Designer for the 6 x Oscar Nominated Hacksaw Ridge!

HACKSAW RIDGE is the extraordinary true story of Desmond Doss (BAFTA winner and Golden Globe nominee Andrew Garfield) who, in Okinawa during the bloodiest battle of WWII, saved 75 men without firing or carrying a gun. He was the only American soldier in WWII to fight on the front lines without a weapon, as he believed that while the war was justified, killing was nevertheless wrong. As an army medic, he single-handedly evacuated the wounded from behind enemy lines, braved fire while tending to soldiers and was wounded by a grenade and hit by snipers. Doss was the first conscientious objector awarded the Congressional Medal of Honour.

In the interview Barry talks about what it was like building everything from battlefields to bunkers, barracks, Japanese farmhouses, and even an entire cliff face, which plays a significant role in the film! The movie was shot in Australia, and is the first time in 10 years Mel Gibson has returned to the director’s chair.
