Blast From the Past

April 14, 2018

While updating my resume, I came across some magazine and newspaper articles about my early days creating miniatures and special effects for motion picture and television commercials. Practical Effects were used often before Computer Generated Imagery CGI.

 

This article was in Shot in LA, Louisiana's Film & Video Monthly, March 1996.

About

I built my first model when I was 6 years old. Unbeknownst to me, the kit box had been opened and the instruction sheet and decals were missing. It didn't matter. I had to have a model of the jet that flew over my house as it approached for landing at the Naval Air Station. I built it and painted the markings using the raised decal locator lines. It was messy, but it was mine. And I have had a passion for model making and thinking "Outside the box" ever since.

I was influenced by the film, Star Wars. I liked movies and I liked model building. I had to find a way to combine both into a career. I worked my way through college as a self-employed professional model maker, building architectural and engineering models.
