Senior model maker

Independant sci-fi film from first time feature director Duncan Jones. Launched at Sundance, and winning Best Film at Edinburgh Film Festival, this is a film not to be missed.

Based at Shepperton Studios, the model miniatures were fabricated over a breakneck 10 week period with a crew of six, culminating in a model shoot crammed into nine days.

  • Fabrication of 1/6 scale Rover body and 3 different backs
  • Design and construction of escape shuttle, launch pad, connecting tunnel and Lunar Industries Satellite
  • Co-fabrication of 1/12 scale moonbase, Eliza miniature and moon landscape, 30' x 25'
  • Detailing, dressing and painting to 1/6 scale Jammer
  • All on-set dressing throughout miniature shoot
