UPDATE 11 - New Building!

Yo guys!

Been a while since our last update, but that doesn't mean we've been lazy!
We were spending quite a lot of time in the editing, tightening the movie down. We are pretty happy with the way it flows now, and we got some ideas for a couple of new "scenes" that will make the audience more involved with our character. I've put the word scenes in the quotation marks because they will not be "long" scenes in a normal sense, more like short snippets constructed of just a couple of shots. But even for a couple of shots we'll have to prepare sets and everything, so expect some cool updates on that soon.

In other news, our new CNC machine arrived some time ago!!

 It's made by a really great company named Ooznest so check them out! Took me some time to build it and figure it out as this was a completely new field for me, but now it's working perfectly.

So after preparing the blueprint in vectors we can now cut out new miniature buildings precisely with the help of the CNC.

Cutting out all these windows by hand would have been a nightmare!

 After the machine finishes it's job all that's left is to assemble it.

 

Then - on to the detailing. Most of these greeblies were 3D printed.

 And after some weathering it's finished. The windows really give it a realistic and massive feel.

 In the next month we should be able to make some more buildings like that, and I'll cover the whole process in more detail in the next video diary.

Hope you like it!
See ya sooooooooooon!

      Hang in there, there's still time for Cannes. The new equipment looks awesome and there may be light at the end of the tunnel.

      Looking good! The model looks so detailed, very impressive, can’t wait to see some live action of it. Keep up the good work.

      This is one of the coolest things I've seen you guys do. The production quality alone looks to be better than some of the cgi movies from Hollywood.

      Woooha, super cool!
      Very nice to see the different stages of making one of your buildings. The result is superb. I love how you use electronic parts to give them more detail.

      Thank you for this great update!
