We are making very good headway on the display units for the L.A. toy fair. We just have a couple more to build by end of day tomorrow and we're good to go. I saved all the parts that are being shipped unpainted until last. We finished up at 10:00 tonight with all the painting done. Nothing special just a few different tones of Hammerite. The stuff is looking good!
Some days we are lucky to have a couple of entirely different things happening to break up the day. Today was no exception. We started early today on a propane fire bar for a commercial we are shooting this week. It was pretty straight forward, propane-burner-fire. I used 1/2" iron pipe for the burner portion with a bunch of holes drilled into it for the flame. It was kinda fun playing with it outside. Oh the good times! Jamie like fire!
This will actually be placed into a faux fireplace for a background shot.
When I lent my services to a collegue who was working on a film about 12 years ago, I was introduced to the world of cnc. I remember watching this huge machining centre milling out a slab of mdf and turning it into a fantastic set of gears. I knew that it would have taken me hours to achieve the same thing with traditional power tools. I decided then that I would invest in a cnc router for my own business Oxenham Design. At that time I could turn on a computer, but even to check email seemed like a crazy set of operations. I persevered and learned every piece of relevant software I could get my hands on. I am now fortunate enough to be using Vectric's ASPIRE software, and Techno cnc routers, which has helped us to create some amazing projects, both in part, or in full. I thought that this blog would be a great place to share "behind the scenes" adventures with the software, materials and equipment we use, as well as the projects we build.
