Y2k Peregrine lights

Let there be lights! I was scared to try lighting it but it was much easier that I expected.

Just three hours and bits I happened to have. Now it’s got three white #led in the floor, two red for the engines, three yellow for the crew compartment and cockpit and a green for the coffee maker.

Not the cleanest wiring job but seeing the wires through the floor adds to the nature of the #spaceship #model #kitbash #lights #40k #y2kperegrine #starwars

Vader Strikes Back; Production design

I was asked to help out with some production design for a video with The Stunt People. This is the follow up to their viral “Vader Strikes” First-person goPro lightsaber duel video. This also gave me the chance to work with my friend Alain Bloch of the Golden Gate Knights, the san Francisco based lightsabre choreography group I’ve been a part of over the last year.

As usual I’ve documented the full process; Full gallery

After scouting the locations I constructed a bunch of props that would fit into the scenes and sell the illusion that we weren’t on earth anymore. I created five light pillars, a collapsible door, various wall panels, a working monitor panel, warning lights, and a working Airlock door.

The light pillars were multi function light sources, pulse/flash/flicker.

Ready for the shoot with @thestuntpeople now to figure out how to get it on my car and over the bridge

The Airlock door was able to open and close via a system of pulleys which I designed with help from Props2c

This was a great project and lot of fun to pull together in a couple weeks.
