CELEBRATION VII WORKSHOP : DESIGNING BESPIN

CELEBRATION VII DIORAMA WORKSHOP
EVENTS - BESPIN - DIORAMA WORKSHOP - WEDNESDAY SET UP - August 30, 2015

Are you sitting down? 3 posts in 1 week. It's been a while and long overdue don't you think ?

Let's go back to the very beginning of 2015. The first thing to do after we choose what the theme of this years Diorama Workshop is, is to build and design the prototypes to make sure that when you arrive, everything runs smoothly and that you understand the instructions and how all the pieces connect together.

Today I have over 30 NEW photos showing you my design and prototype process. Remember that ALL of these will be available for home building through the WORKSHOP menu so that you can also build or continue to build what the fans made in California back in April.

Click on the EVENTS / Celebration VII / Pre Production "Designing Bespin" menu icon or CLICK HERE to warp direct to the photos. Remember you can also CLICK on HD full res printable 8X11 photos when available which is pretty much every picture :) Also there is a VIDEO of the prototypes available to you as well. Just click the VIDEOS button to the right of the MAKING OF button on top of the page's first photo. Have a GREAT Monday !!!

Frank.

If you have questions or would like to help us in any way at the show, send me an email: frank@dioramaworkshop.com

Exclusive Celebration VII BESPIN CLOUD CITY Staff coverage can be found by clicking on the EVENTS menu then the STAR WARS CELEBRATION VII : DIORAMA WORKSHOP logo button and finally any of the CELEBRATION VII WORKSHOP thumbnails.

CELEBRATION VII DIORAMA WORKSHOP
EVENTS - BESPIN - DIORAMA WORKSHOP - WEDNESDAY SET UP - August 30, 2015

Good morning everyone, Have you all picked up your Disney INFINITY 3.) Star Wars video games today ? :P What a great year to be a Star Wars fan... Next week NEW TOYS and then Battlefront and then FORCE AWAKENS itself. AWESOME !!!

Today let's look back at the day before the big event, yes it's the Wednesday Set Up. The most stressfull running around all over the place, can't believe we are doing this again kind of day :) Knowing that in 24 hours, Star Wars fans will be all over the place and coming to build a section of our Bespin Diorama.

More then 99 photos have been uploaded showing you what the staff - now great friends of mine - and I do to get ready for all of you to come have a great time at this Celebration VII, this my 6th workshop that I have produced and designed for Lucasfilm. If you wanna be a fly on the wall and be right here with us, then wait no further...

Click on the EVENTS / Celebration VII / Pre Production "Set Up Wednesday" menu icon or CLICK HERE to warp direct to the photos. Remember you can also CLICK on HD full res printable 8X11 photos when available which is pretty much every picture :) Enjoy and have a great weekend...

Frank.

CELEBRATION VII WORKSHOP : ARRIVAL & DROP OFF

CELEBRATION VII DIORAMA WORKSHOP
EVENTS - BESPIN - DIORAMA WORKSHOP - ANAHEIM ARRIVAL - August 27, 2015

Since I don't want to spoil my record for procrastination :P I thought I would wait 4 months AFTER the convention to start posting my coverage :)

Seriously, When I returned back from the convention, city coruption, lawyers and construction nightmare of our neighbours quickly brought me back to real life in Montreal. The week in Anaheim with my friends and Star Wars fans was a nice escape to the problems I've been dealing with for the past 2 years. Let's just say I'm NOT a fan of the justice system or city officials for that matter. But I am not here today to bore you with that. Let's talk about the GOOD STUFF...

Celebration VII, my 6th workshop that I have produced and designed for Lucasfilm was a HUGE SMASH. NOT ONE complaint from the families, everyone had a great time building, and things went rather smoothly that allowed us to have extreme minimum closing of the main entrance gates. Some families told us they waited 3 hours in line to come build. 3 hours !!!! that's is insane for a fan made area.

So today, let's start at the begining of what it's like if you were to come join the team and help out behind the scenes of working and organizing a Celebration Diorama Builders Workshop area. And this year, Sponsored by HASBRO. You can't get any bigger or more official then that.  DAY ONE - TUESDAY APRIL 14, 2015 - when I left Montreal to fly to Anaheim and arrive in California to meet friends I haven't seen in 3 years and pick up and deliver, check out the booth to make sure all is ready for the next day's BIG set up.

Click on the EVENTS / Celebration VII / Pre Production Drop Off Tuesday menu icon or CLICK HERE to warp direct to see more then 50 exclusive photos not seen anywhere else on the internet. You will be my fly on the wall for the next couple of posts. ENJOY !!! Day 2 of the SET UP will be posted during the weekend. Maybe by Friday if I find the time.

Frank.

HAPPY STAR WARS DAY : EWOK SCREEN TEST

DIORAMA WORKSHOP COOL ZONE
YOU TUBE CHANNEL - COOL ZONE - FRANK DIORIO RETURN OF JEDI AUDITION
April 28, 2015

Good morning everybody...

In honor of the May 4th Star Wars world wide celebration, I thought I would start myself a new tradition here at the workshop. The plan is to honor our fave film series with an annual spoof using the vfx work that I do in real life and spread a few laughs in return. 

You can see this years FIRST entry - the LONG LOST FOOTAGE - of my very own Frank Diorio Star Wars Return of the Jedi Audition for Wicket (unfortunately for me the role went to a more talented and much younger actor) at the official DIORAMA WORKSHOP YOU TUBE page.

Happy STAR WARS DAY !!! Frank.

Subscribe to my DWC YouTube channel today, and be ready for more EXCLUSIVE Staff Diorama Workshop coverage of the show, and see just what it's like to organize such a huge event. Now what are you waiting for... Hit PLAY :)

CELEBRATION VII WORKSHOP : FAN RECOLLECTION

CELEBRATION VII DIORAMA WORKSHOP
EVENTS - CLOUD CITY - FAN RECOLLECTIONS - April 30, 2015

Good Morning, it's hard to believe more then one week has passed since Celebration Anaheim. To think all those months of planning just dissapear in the blink of an eye. I already miss all of my friends that I wont see for another 2 years.

Today let's work our way backwards in my coverage if you will :P I should normally start with photos from each days event before posting this, but theres so many 1000+ to sort out, I thought, before time flees too much ahead, Let's open the FAN RECOLLECTIONS page for you now.

If you came to build or to see what the fans built during the show, please feel free to leave your feedback of your experience. Not only will it make us SMILE :) but it will also help us know what to change or how to better ourselves for our next convention workshops. Look forwards to hearing from you.

Also, if you prefer to record a VIDEO FEEDBACK instead of text, I can certainly embed and put your youtube link to the feedback pages.

Frank.
