Adam Savage - Modeler at Heart
I thought some of you might like to watch
this video I came across. We all know what the Mythbusters
are on TV. But this is a video by Adam Savage, who is at
heart, a modeler like us.
It's not surprising, since he cut his teeth working at ILM,
and building models and props. Or that he teamed up with
Jamie and used their own company to do Special FX for TV,
movies and commercials.
But at the end of the day, Adam likes to make stuff for
himself. Not only fabricating what he has in his head, such
as a model or prop idea, but to also build an actual model
kit that might have come in a box. Just like we would.
He's no stranger to resin, casting, making molds. That is
of course, part of his profession on a daily basis. But
it's fun to watch him get as excited as we do about a new
model, and the assembly of the kit, as well as painting
He has quite the shop too, and I see us all wishing we had
a shop like that to literally make anything. What I like
about Adam speaking is when he talks about resin, or mold
making, he seriously knows what he's talking about. If you're
not familiar (I suspect most SCIFI model fans already know)
they mention Industria
Mechanika. That company make some great resin products
that are unique, and you can check out their site here.
also lets us visit his "office", where he's collected
memorabilia and models, both built and unbuilt. What a treasure
chest. But he clearly enjoys everything models, just like
us regular modeling guys (and gals).
a peek at the video, it's a lot of fun.
