The transcendent, otherworldly quality of Venosa's art fits perfectly into the Sci-Fi genre of film design. Dune, Fire in The Sky, and Race For Atlantis are three movies for which Venosa has created his unique style of conceptual design.
The exquisite landscapes and character design executed by Venosa for Dune are incomparable visions of the fantastic. Frank Herbert's masterpiece, as interpreted through the dreamlike art of Venosa, promised an inspired collaboration that would have translated magically onto the screen. However, as often happens in Hollywood, the production staff changed hands in mid-stream and Venosa's work was sacrificed to the gods of banality. H.R. Giger was another whose designs on the project were also scrapped. One can only imagine what might have been.
