Movie Studio...

Hi, guys,

It's been a while and I'd like to show what I've been putting together for my attempt at a Photonovel.

As you proably know, putting together a Photonovel requires not only creating models and dioramas, but also customising figures, photography, editing and of course story telling (sharp intake of breath!). I have a huge amount of respect for anyone who attempts one. 

For a while now I've been aspiring to get into the genre, but with a business to run and 2 kids to look after, time is at a premium. So, rather than try to make sets out of solid materials (which is time consuming), I've decided to try to put together a system of sets using mountboard, a method I used to create my large Death Star Hangar.

By creating sets in this way, walls, floors and other details can be shifted into varying positions in order to create the illusion of different locations, also the walls and floors can have decals on both sides, again making location changes quick and simple.

After scouring the net for a couple of hours I then had enough images to create both of the sets I'll need for the first act of the novel, which takes place on Coruscent, on the lower levels and on the Azameen Family Base.

The other good thing about this process is that the kids can play with this stuff, they can create their own scenes using their own imagination.

Anyway, without further ado, here are my test shots of my first night work. 

And here is the film studio....
