#76 - 1.9 Million Sq. Ft Needed
Filming has really picked up now productions have found their 'Covid feet'. This being the case, studio space is in demand and there are many expansions taking place right now as studios increase capacity to meet demand - that is great news for the industry. We also chat about breaking sculpts down for moulding and why this may or may not be necessary.
#75 - Cutting Edges & Flat Moulds
We covered cutting edges in episode #61 but this one is specifically about cutting edges on flat moulds.
Cutting edges on appliance moulds do the work of separating the fine appliance edge from the flashing and excess, allowing the mould to close properly and achieve the feather thin edge you have sculpted.
#74 - Foam & Filament
In episode #74 we talk about running lots of foam latex and overcoming the things that can go wrong with foam latex. Despite silicone being the material most go to first, it is a very real material that needs to be kept in mind for certain projects.
We also chat about how 3D scanning and printing has had a tangible benefit on some jobs we had this year, and how using this technology has enabled things that would not have otherwise been possible.
#73 - Rod Maxwell
Rod Maxwell is a bit of a Renaissance man, and the more we talked the more you can see how wearing many hats has informed his approach.
Looking at his Instagram, you can see trailblazing work with 3D printed moulds, scanning lifecasts and moulds and using that data to create things impossible to do any other way.
#72 - Adam Beane
Adam has become well known for his miniature and smaller-scale work which has both great expression as well as high levels of detail, and even developed a material which allowed such tight detail for miniatures called Cx5.
He also has cultivated a very positive and effective mindset which is infectious and inspiring to behold and makes you want to try harder as you see that he walks the walk himself.
#71 - Daniel Parker
Daniel Parker has recently been praised for his work as makeup and hair designer on The Queens Gambit (Netflix) and Chernobyl (HBO). He has an extensive range of credits spanning 37 years.
We talked about how often simple techniques and good paintwork , and the work of a makeup designer.
