CELEBRATION V DIORAMA WORKSHOP : DESIGNING HOTH

CELEBRATION V DIORAMA WORKSHOP
EVENTS - ECHO BASE - PRE PRODUCTION: DESIGNING HOTH - JANUARY 23, 2015

Way back in 2010, there was this little event called Star Wars Celebration V :) And again, I was lucky enough to be asked if I wanted to return and create another Diorama Builders Booth with my Staff. (Friends, really, after 7 years, they are even more like family now in 2015)

The theme we came up with for Star Wars Celebration V was to create the HOTH Echo Base Diorama Workshop. Working with styrofoam and paint and instant snow, it turned out to be our favorite event all ALL the Celebrations to this day. So here we go - 4 years late - Totally totally embarrassing :P Let the coverage BEGIN.

If you were ever curious as to how I start a Celebration Workshop, then you are in for a treat. Today I present more then 50 photos from my loft, where Andre and I sat down for many hours trying to figure out what and HOW to build the HOTH that so many Star Wars fans enjoyed making in Orlando 2010.

The first thing is to figure out what materials are best to use, create prototypes to see if and how all will fit together. The last thing you want is to have 500 people build a piece and none of them connect to give the illusion of ONE GIANT DIORAMA. After all this is done, you can figure the budget, send it to Lucasfilm for approval - remember Lucasfilm and Reed are the ones who pay for ALL the art supplies. Fans building get in for FREE and BUILD FOR FREE - which is why our workshops have become one of the most popular Fan Run booths at the shows. So sit down and enjoy the making of process. Photos from the other Celebration days will be coming real soon.

Also, don't forget MANY of the photos are ALSO available in HD print form for your Star Wars Celebration IV Scrapbook. Simply click on the 200 dpi button below each photo.

If you were one of the few lucky people who stopped by and came to build a piece of Hoth, please send me an e-mail with your photos and memories - good or bad - frank@dioramaworkshop.com Subject: Celebration V. I will add them to the fan recollections page.

HAPPY NEW YEAR EVERYBODY !

Surprise Surprise - HAPPY NEW YEAR

Yes you are NOT dreaming, there is actually a NEW post after almost 1 year of leaving you stranded and hard for me finding time to come here to say hello. 

It's rather embarrasing to tell you the truth, but I am but ONE person doing all of this and as much as I LOVE Dioramas, it IS a hobby and when the Poop hits the fan in real life, and you just have to put everything aside to try and gain control, well this is what happens unfortunately.

The GOOD NEWS is that I am not DEAD or have plans to KILL the site. I wish I could clone myself to spend more time with you, but that will be a post for 2045 :P For now, I will do my best to at least do ONE POST MINIMUM on the weekends.

So much has happened in the past year, I finished work on Edge of Tomorrow - which was a GREAT film if you haven't seen it yet. Then we worked on Dracula Untold and Paddington. After 3 years off work to take care of Mom before her passing, Getting back full speed into film VFX has been so great.

Ok, so enough of me, I will dig up some LONG DUE photos tomorrow for you to see, and they will give you a little WINK as to why all of a sudden I have popped back in here. there are NO pure coincidences in life - or are there ? :P

Glad to be back. Frank.
