Welcome to my blog! I am new to this "blog" stuff, So I will start my first thread by telling you who I am and what I do. My name is Phillip Freeman And I build T.V. and Movie props. I am primarily a sci-fi prop and modeler, but I will branch out into other areas. Right now my list of shows that I make replicas are from Stargate, Stargate:SG1, Stargate: Atlantis, Stargate: Universe, Star Trek (all of it), Star Wars, Earth Final Conflict, Battlestar Galactica, and the list goes on. My movie list is also massive, but current projects are scale 1:1 statues from Iron-Man 1 and 2.
I have had many trials in my career as a model maker, but I like to think of them as finishing marks. Yes going into this field I understand that prop and model makers are quickly going old school with the perfection of CGI and 3D tech. I'm not blind to this. I myself have started to blend those worlds. My future projects will use both areas 3D and "old school" sculpting medias. Everything from designing props in a 3D program and using a 3D desktop printer to produce some items while still spending hours copying styrene layers and cutting them out. I will even dive head first into pepakura projects. Pepakura is very new to me, but for some it is old. And I plan to spot light some of the artist that have mastered that form of prop making. I hope you will follow and stay informed. Also please take the time to visit my youtube account. I will also try to answer any questions you might have. Thank You!
