Today we started work on this years LG booth. We did the booth for LG last year at Toronto's Fan Fair Expo. It's the Canadian version of Comic Con.
The job is actually being split by 3 companies as it's a huge endevour between sound and lighting/ audio visual / Octonorn rentals, etc.
Our involvment is to build a duplicate of the 3'X6'X 20' tall column that houses alot of the tech gear.
Tomorrow we have to skin these with flexi-ply, then get the white laminate contact cemented on. These aren't due for a bit still, so we don't have to work crazy "movie hours" on this.
It was great to work with Andrew again!
I'm very fortunate that my work never feels like a "job", it always feels like I'm just hanging out, making cool stuff!
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.
