Metal sculptures are cut apart and welded back into new positions for each frame. First 100 backers get a free small metal demon.
Alright, so there isn't much time left and I've decided to make one huge adjustment to this project, and thats that I'm going to give away a ton of free shit. Now it may be fiscally irresponsible of me to do this but I'm doing it anyway. So the first 100 people who donate to the project will receive a free one to three inch metal monster (or something like it).. thats on top of whatever else you want. Or you don't have to get anything at all if you don't want, just make a small donation (I humbly suggest $5 to cover shipping) and I'll still send you. But I'm only going to do it if I meet the funding goal. So act now. cause there's not much time left.
The video above shows the new technique in its infancy, though short and simple it shows the incredible potential of this new method. For the new video I plan on coming up with a full cast of characters and an interesting story. The movie will be an adaptation of some classical theme, imbued with my own sense of crazy and lot of twisted metal, literally. Some of the ideas I've been flirting with include a metallic trip into Dante's inferno, a Foustian nightmare, or an odyssey in steel... or maybe it will be something different entirely . I can't yet say where this will lead me or what this process will become. Maybe, if all goes well, I'll make a full length film or even a video game in this style. I would love to make a video game.
The funding for this project will go towards buying all the movie making equipment and the necessary technology for building and editing a sweet animation as well as the hiring of assistants, material costs, fuel costs, and regularly scheduled pizza parties... actually who am I kidding most of the money will probably go right back into creating the backer rewards, but hey thats what
Sculpture has always been my life and livelihood and most of all my passion. And it's through this project and others like it that I can truly push the envelope of this material as well as my own potential as a sculptor and with enough support I guarantee you I will create something truly original and awesome..... not to mention all the awesome stuff you get in exchange for donating.
Like this black and white T-shirt design, available for the $23 backers .
Or here we have the $29 color T-shirt design:
Then there is the $67 small monstrous head with legs:
Followed by the $139 full bodied miniature monster:
And then there is this, the most worked version of the animation technique so far... which isn't actually a reward, but gives you an idea of what it is you're helping to support (oh and the $353 planter reward level can be viewed from minute 1:00 - 1:20)
Also if you have any suggestions for what you would like to see as a backer reward please leave your ideas in the comments. I may open up a poll on Reddit.com to come up with the final backer reward tier... Updates on this and everything else coming soon.
If you would like more than one of the reward levels, or a specific commission, or if you have an idea for the backer reward that you want to discuss with me, or if you just want to say hello you can e-mail me at email@example.com
