FX 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 others.

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!
