The roller coaster car and the big brain got delivered today! It was great to see George and Matt. Everyone at the studio is so nice.
On another note, I found the short film we did last year with the Death Machine on You Tube. It's only ten minutes, but it brings back a lot of memories! In fact, I can remember exactly where I was hiding out in every scene that involved the Death Machine! Congratulations to Simon and everyone who worked on it. It was a blast!
It is a little dark and gross, so be warned :)
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.
