Mechanical Magnificence - The House of Machines

This set was so much fun to build. The concrete look is achieved with styrofoam painted over with grey acrylic. Dressed with cracks and little wires sticking out, I find it convincing enough. I also was allowed by my daddio to take apart a DVD player, the circuit boards are an intriguing detail, adds character. Little robot pieces, little overhead lamps, security cameras that spin like a top, chains crunching, a rotating ceiling fan, this house really comes to life in the master shot! Roughly 1,200 photos taken here.

Tree + Tree = Some Trees + Cheating it with a Camera = Forest

This is the forest where all the beautiful meetings happen. Roughly 2,000 photos take place here. The trees are sculpted out of sculpey, painted on top with acrylic. The rocks are made up of Chipotle napkins that I hot glued into rocky shapes. All the foliage dressing is from a model train store. Enter the forest!

Bring you up here. Axe Complex SET photos.

This is my main character Autos place. Scale wise... the photo of the astronaut on the back wall is about 1 in x 0.5 in. This is the first set I completed last year, just finished shooting everything on it! Total of 350 photos here.
