The stuff dreams are made of…

Holy Falcon! I just got this package from Adam Savage and inside beyond what I knew he was sending me was this! Surprise isn’t the word for it. I was floored. Many of you will remember the show about his making this himself from scratch. He totally surprised me. Holy shit! It’s beautiful! Thank you Adam!!!!!!

More progress on Moonwatcher

A few stills of the head so far. Today I will silicone adhere fabric to the inside of the skin so I can Barge cement it to the under skull. Do the lip mechanics which are simple plates attached to cables hooked up to the upper and lower jaw. Then I have to pad it. Without padding it’s like wearing the iron maiden!

Great week!

What a great week! Lots of progress and few snags.

George is smoking on the Giant’s torso. Yeah I know I laid it all up but he has been doing a fine and hard job of preening. Finishing off all the small details and getting it finished enough to mold and it nearly is. I am just stoked!

I did the teeth molds on for the Moonwatcher project, started the ears and got another hour of sculpting in on the Star Child at the very end of the day.

The other great thing that happened this week was a meeting with Isaac. We went over the entire edit of “But Something is There”. It looks great and we made lots of notes and came up with some great things to finish. Isaac is editing on until we get the next cut. I’m hoping next week and this brings us to the score Tomas Martin is doing. And we just got the opening credits score from him and its awesome! Soon we will be finished.

And more progress

More progress at the studio yesterday. You’ll find the pics you see somewhat confusing but it will all make better sense after todays next steps.
I opened the underskull mold and laid up an epoxy fiber glass underskull that I will pull out this morning. I’ll cut the jaw line and hinge it. Cut out the eye area and attach this to the skull cap.
Also I made up a skull cap and I padded my life cast with clay so I have room to add padding to the inside for greater comfort. My Gorilla heads in the past didn’t have this and it was a bit painful over the long days of shooting TV commercials.
Giselle and I started the gums for the eventual teeth I will mold today. I will also sculpt and mold a tong.
And George is closing on the finish of the torso master for the “Iron Giant” It is our hope to mold the torso next week and move on to the waist, arms and legs. It was a busy and successful day!

more steps

Got the core mold made yesterday and will open today. From this I’ll make the supporting epoxy fiber glass underskull. I also started the Star child. Far as I could get in 30 minutes before I had to close the studio and go to a meeting but it shows promise. The eyes are just temps for sculpting. I decided to paint them rather then have that zombie look which can through you when sculpting.

Mold made!

Got the 1630 mold made of the finished sculpt. Tomorrow I’ll do the core. Next week core mold, skin and underskull. Will open the mold in the morning.
Then the real fun begins. Casting the underskull, mechanics, adding the teeth, ears and a whole lot more.
All covered in this weeks upcoming SNG now which will only cover this project and other 2001 projects in honor of the 50th year anniversary of the greatest film of all time!
