Just what every boy needs

I got this RC V-1 Buzz Bomb kit from my friend Scott and just couldn’t resist taking a break to start building it. It’s getting there. Lots more to do. Should be a kick to fly.

Foo Fighters moving forward

Been editing for a few days now and nearly have the big battle scene done where the P-51 Squadron shoots down a Foo Fighter after losing 2 of their men. About 30 CGI shoots all done by yours truly, green screen comps, a bunch of cutting, sound mix and sound effects. Next up is to add the score and I can move on to cutting the rest of the live action.

Here’s some screen grabs from the edit bay. Click on the small image to see a larger one. Be sure to expand the window to full page too.

Lots to tell

Been busy having a new PC made for editing and after effects for my feature length movie, “Foo Fighters”.

www.foofightersmovie.com

My good friend JCM spec-ed out the machine and I bought all the components at New Egg.
He is also the DP on this film and a producer.

Here’s JCM building the machine late at night in my work shop-post production facility.

It’s a high end machine, quad core, 8 gigs of ram and a smoking video card. All Intel chip set. Jeff built the machine for me in one night. Loaded to bare with Windows 7 Ultimate, CS4, I am back to work on my composites of the pilots from green screen to the CGI cockpit of a P-51 Mustang. Now that they are done I’m editing the entire movie. Three months of CGI and more than 30 minutes of CGI animation all singled handed.

Go to the Foo fighters website to see more. The frame above is taken from my after effects program Digital Fusion of one of the green screen composites. I just did over 50.

In addition I’ve had a little fun on the side an built this free flight Ford Tri-motor.

You can see what I’m building next in the BKG. I’ll post a new Foo fighters Theatrical trailer this weekend.

I’ve nearly finished the ME-109

It was a lot of fun building this model. Can’t wait to fly it. Still a bit more detailing to do. What’s next!

Guillows ME-109 build

Despite being a nearly all RC kind of guy I still think that building airplanes in stick and tissue is a real neat thing. After all the whole flying model airplane hobby started right here. Before electronics and radio control these planes had to fly on their own. If you look at video on the net of these free flight rubber band, electric, and rocket powered models, they are truly amazing to watch. They fly as though they are under control and land better by themselves than some RC pilots.

So I started this ME-109 and will finish and fly it on video right here as time goes by. Here’s what I have done so far.

Flying my RC airliner

Went out today for a bit of flying. My RC 757 of sorts. Atteched a small camera to it.


Enjoy,

Steve
