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.

MARS: Some assembly required!

Today was pretty chill as far as studio builds go! We arrived at the studio for around noon, and assembled the various pieces. Mostly it is just a guess, as no one knows for sure until a camera gets on it. The art director also wanted 3 more sections of rock for even more flexibility, so I carved 3 more small rocks, and we hardcoated them with plaster of paris. We'll paint these up first thing in the A.M!

I decided to set up a time-lapse video using our Gopro, so you could see just how a typical miniature base studio day goes.
I'm hoping to shoot a time lapse tomorrow of the pre-light. This is usually a little more exciting, as a whole lot more is going on.
So here you go:
