Guide Interstellar Movie Miniature Models
Model making for movies is not used as much as in the past,
with CGI 3D effects taking over the TV and movie industries.
But there are still some actual physcial models being made.
This is a good article on using models in the latest
Interstellar Scifi movie.
For me personally, models for movies has been a big influence
on me. In the 1970's I couldn't wait to get the latest
issue of Starlog to see what models may be in it. While
I would build a model of almost anything (much like today),
Scifi models have always been some of my favorites. I honed
a lot of modeling skills building AMT Star
Trek kits, Aurora Irwin Allen Aurora kits, and many
I don't think models for movies will ever completely go
away. Cost wise, there will always be times when it's more
practical and less money than doing the scene in CGI on
a movie. And I am sure'there are times when a model will
look better on screen.
Check out the article, I think you will enjoy it. By the
way, Moebius Models will be producing a model of the Interstellar
Ranger Shuttle in 2015, so watch for that too!
