pre production Celebration IX THE BATTLE OF SCARIF
Hello everyone – As you can see, the cat is out of the bag !!! . It is with GREAT EXCITEMENT that I reveal the theme today for our 8th Star Wars Celebration Diorama Builders workshop : THE BATTLE OF SCARIF as seen in one of my fave Star Wars films ROGUE ONE. . I want to thank Lucasfilm and Mary at ReedPop for allowing me to let you all know what we have planed for 2019. It was a tight race, as last year we were planing a huge POD RACE diorama to celebrate the 20th anniversary of Star Wars EPISODE I The Phantom Menace. Along the way, circumstances beyond our control that arose in the past months, made it clear to us we unfortunately would have to abandon this concept for this time and re-think what else would be a really exciting and fun build never attempted before. First thing that came to mind was that I wanted it to be our very FIRST DISNEY ERA construction and the one I love the most, a scene from ROGUE ONE. . My crew and I were debating between 2 choices then LIGHTNING STRUCK, in the form of something I cannot discuss YET 🙂 I know I know, It’s Christmas, why am I being such a grinch and spoiling your day 🙂 It was going so well, I was spilling the beans LOL – But this LIGHTBULB MOMENT that magically fell in our lap, just happens to be the COOLEST THING to happen to Diorama Builders booth in a long time – It will be a REAL GAME CHANGER for the Diorama Workshop experience. You will ALL be SOOO HAPPY when I can spill the beans about this final “SECRET” from the show (I am hoping mid-end January 2019) and then the FULL FLOODGATES will begin. . Until then, I can still show you some fun stuff like, How I make the Artwork, Logo Variations for Pins and other SWAG to be given at the show. Keep coming to visit often between now and the convention. You will learn just how much work and preparation and planing it takes to organize and produce a convention booth for Star Wars Celebration. . HAPPY HOLIDAYS – Enjoy your day with friends and family !!! . Cheers, Ciao for now… . Frank . OH, if you want to see me talk about the reveal, I uploaded the FIRST CELEBRATION IX CREW VIDEO HERE
