Back to the Iron Giant

I have finished off all of my client projects and I’m down to just the “Iron Giant” and the “Laserblast” gun.

I am starting another big glider, real big this time.

Also we are in the process of more scripts and more episodes of “But Something is There”.

I also finished the Seaview and tested it in the tank. Perfect and ready to ship.

Robot should finish in about 2 more weeks. He’s nearly * foot on his base with rollers. I like my models big.

And for you new folks here like the big Enterprise and the Captain’s chair this is entirely scratch built.

We are in buisness

SNG Studio is a production and post production house that produces visual effects both practical and digital.

We can provide After Effects, Lightwave 3D CGI animation, compositing and more.

We can also make practical miniatures, props, makeup effects, and creatures.

Our studio is located in Ventura California. Steve Neill has over 40 years of visual effects experience that ranges many mediums and many film and TV credits from Ghost Busters to Star Trek.

We are open for business and looking for film projects that need our services. Low budgets, medium and high are all considered.

Back to building models for myself

Back to models for myself and this is one of those holy grails if you are a super 2001 fan like I am. The paint job, interiors and lighting are all done.

Now I’m working on a backdrop made from 1×2’s a 0.60 styrene that will on Monday get painted with stars and Jupiter. Then the model will be mounted in the middle and mounted on my wall.

Next up tow old Lunar models.

No more Cochrane’s

The last Cochrane for a friend and collector. These are Doug Drexler’s original sculpture. Not a replica or fan made.

Last RC Submarine model

Just finished our last customer model build of a radio controlled of the Seaview.

This was our last client build.

I have one myself and have built several over the years for customers that realize their worth.

No more models for collectors

We are no longer offering model making services except to the motion picture industry. SNG Studio is only a VFX, post production, creature effects and special makeup effects studio.

We also offer After Effects, CGI, and composting.

Since the demise of the model building profession it no longer offers enough money to pay our studio bills. This is a result of amature modelers practically giving away their services and watering down a once well paying profession.

Although we are no longer making models for the public we will be making shows for our Patreon subscribers. These builds will be my own personal builds and I’ll show exactly how they are made, the tools and the materials you need.

We will also continue to show you scratch builds of props, creatures making and makeup effects.
