SWCO DIORAMA WORKSHOP - THANK YOU
EVENTS - ILM DEATH STAR SURFACE - APRIL 13-16 2017
Good morning everyone. OMG Time just flies by. You spend 6 months designing, building prototypes, discussions with Lucasfilm, Reed, Hot Wheels, and then it's time, Celebration is here and just in the blink of an eye - It's all over.
Here is a sneak photo from the last day, just 3 hours before fans tore apart the Death Star and were told to leave the convention center. Many builders asked if the blueprints and stencils and all the materials list that was used at the convention would be available for home building after the show. The answer: OF COURSE. The real question should be more WHEN? Let me quickly give you an update on what's going on with me in the next coming weeks...
Now that the show is over, I am officially retired from Movie VFX, Alien Covenant is my last film. I have sold my house in Montreal, doing a full reboot for the 2nd phase of my life (53+) We are house searching intensily until april 30, May 1 we drive back to Montreal to pack boxes for 7 days. May 8 I meet with the buyer and turn over all papers and keys, May 9 truck arrives and takes my boxes and 4 decades of Star Wars collection to New Brunswick. If we don't find a home in the next 10 days, I arrive homeless. not fun. If we find a house, then it's unpacking and setting up the new workshop. The great news, is that it won't be in a deep cement basement this time, so I will be able to do LIVE builds in the near future. So that's the story of my life for the next month. So don't expect many updates until we are settled in.
In the meantime, there is a LOT of LIVE Twitter videos that we did available for you to watch NOW simply find me @dioramaworkshop. I may do a few NEW live videos here and there time permiting through summer. I will at least upload all blueprints and stencils during the next week without the making of videos that will come later. See you soon... and to those who attended Celebration and came to build with us. THANK YOU for making the Death Star experience one of the MOST FUN builds we have done in a LONG TIME !!!
