“Guardians of the Galaxy” 2013. Int StarBlaster Cockpit. A last minute request from production was to see inside the StarBlaster Cockpit. I was asked to put something together but we were running low on budget so the concept guys came up with the idea that the front of the blaster was open to the elements meaning less to actually build. So I just starting messing around with some shapes, we stole the flooring from the Nova Corp Vault (more on that in a later post) the cockpit chair was kitbashed together from bits lying around the prop house and brilliantly bought to life by a team of great prop makers whose names escape me but if you know who they are then please tag them here. The colours were based on the established colours of the Nova Corp and we did blue and yellow leatherette wraps around all the MDF shapes further to which we added some chrome elements by fantachroming some MDF. It looked great. Then we put it on a gimbal and the that was it. All in all from inception to completion I think it was 18 days or something like that. My first ever vehicle/spaceship and I’m very proud of it. What do you think? ⁣ .⁣ .⁣ .⁣ .⁣ .⁣ #3ddesign #3dmodeling #3dmodelingandanimation #3dmodelingindonesia #3dmodelinglosangeles #3dmodelingmurah #3dmodelingservice #3ᴅᴍᴏᴅᴇʟɪɴɢ #artdepartment #artdirection #artistoninstagram #artistsoninstagram #artoftheday #branding #business #cgi #creative #creativedirection #decorators #graphicdesign #graphicdesigner #illustrator #instaart #interiordecorator #pencil #sketchbook #sketches #sketching #sketchup

“Guardians of the Galaxy” I’ll be sharing the drawings of this next but for now I wanted to show the this little clip I took when we were testing the gimbal. Due to the weight of the rig and the weight of the actor we were already at near full load with very little tolerance left. At the last minute they decided to rig a heavy camera onto the front of the set - luckily our SFX team were confident that the gimbal could take it but there were squeaky bums all round until one of the SFX team offered to sit in the test flight. Also you get to see how the outside of the set is finished! ⁣ .⁣ .⁣ .⁣ .⁣ .⁣ #artdirection #behindthescenes #cinema #cinematography #creating #creative #director #editorial #film #filmmaker #filmmaking #fxmakeup #halloweenmakeup #horror #mua #productiondesign #setconstruction #setdesign #setdesignby #setdesigner #setdesignerslife #setdesignforscreen #setdesignphotography #setdesigns #setdesignsaturday #setlife #sfx #sfxmakeup #specialeffects filmcrewmagazine filmlights sfxmagazine vfx.guru

“Guardians of the Galaxy” 2013. Found these shots whilst looking for something else. Nice candid moments caught between takes. It’s funny because In the moment you never know what is or isn’t going to be an iconic or famous scene. This was probably on a wet Tuesday morning just getting on with the job. It’s only years later when you look back especially with Guardians because like I said before I don’t think any of us thought this would be a special movie. But honestly it’s the one I loved making the most. Such a great time in my career. What do you guys think of this movie? Let me know. ⁣ .⁣ .⁣ .⁣ .⁣ .⁣ #artdepartment #artdirection #artistoninstagram #artistsoninstagram #behindthescenes #branding #business #cinema #cinematography #creative #decorators #director #film #filmmaker #filmmaking #graphicdesign #graphicdesigner #illustrator #instaart #interiordecorator #productiondesign #productiondesigner #setdesign #setdesignby #setdesigner #setdesignerslife #setdesignforscreen #setdesignphotography #setdesigns #setlife filmcrewmagazine filmlights

“Guardians of the Galaxy” 2013. Int The Milano Cockpit appreciation post! Art director Phil Sims oversaw this set, it was a composite set so the cockpit was one part on one stage and the underbelly / living quarters were another set on another stage. Phil did an incredible job and I normally don’t post work that I did not do but this deserves to be seen, the cockpit chairs alone are stunning pieces of design. I sometimes forget just how much work went into some of these sets. Phil was an early proponent of 3D modelling for me, he encouraged me to get into 3D and knew it was the way the art department was going. Phil probably used AutoCad or Rhino here, I know in later years he used Fusion360. And this is the point I always try and impress on people. There is no right or wrong 3D program. Use what you are comfortable with but become a master of it. It’s no use being ok with lots of different programs. Hope you like the pictures. Let me know if you have any questions. ⁣ .⁣ .⁣ .⁣ .⁣ .⁣ #artdepartment #artdirection #artistoninstagram #artistsoninstagram #artoftheday #behindthescenes #behindthescenes🎬 #branding #business #cinema #cinematography #creative #creativedirection #decorators #digitalillustration #director #film #filmmaker #filmmaking #graphicdesign #graphicdesigner #illustrator #instaart #interiordecorator #productiondesign #productiondesigner #setdesign #setlife #ukfilm #videography davidterritorystudio territorystudio artdepartmental

Due to a high volume of questions recently regarding rates. Go check out the rate card on the BECTU website. It covers all the different production bands and what you can expect to earn in each role in each budget band. As I generally work in high end tv or features I’ve screen grabbed the rate card for this band. There is a minimum amount you should be taking home and there is an average rate, the average is negotiable based on experience. So here it is in black and white (and yellow and green) for those asking about rates as they are worried about leaving their jobs in Architecture and or Interior Design to move into the film world I’d would say now is the time to do it if you really want to do it. There are so many productions happening, new studios being built, current studios being expanded. Netflix, Disney, Amazon and Apple all have major UK production bases now, Warner Bros at Leavesden and Marvel at well all of them. Now is the time to get involved, the rates are good but they will only get better as productions fight to retain crew. This is a new “Golden Age” in entertainment, if you want to get involved my tutorials are still available with 30% off until the end of the month, grab them while they are so cheap and learn my entire workflow. Use the code “sale” at checkout for your discount to be applied. Got any questions?

“Guardians of the Galaxy” 2013. The finished engines inside The Milano. The rounded front piece was actually a light fitting recycled from The Eclector set. Even on big budget stuff we are looking at ways to save money, reuse and recycle. Often times we move budget from one set to another if one is coming in under budget we’ll move money to pay for ones that are going over budget. I did like the look of these engines though. What do you think?

“Guardians of the Galaxy” 2013. Int The Milano… Art Director Phil Sims oversaw the interior of The Milano set. I was tasked with drawing up the large engine details. I believe there were 2 of these possibly 4 but here you see the main plan and elevation. Along with the additional detail sheets. These additional sheets consist of various parts of the engine and its housing. We break down an element to determine how many drawings it will need. As this was a fairly complex piece of scenery I think we did six detail sheets in total. A fun thing to try and model in SketchUp. I remember an art director telling me once not to get bogged down in the form and structure and to look at everything as a series of arcs, circles, squares and rectangles. So if you find yourself not being able to draw or model something seemingly complex break it down into its basic geometry. That’s what works for me ⁣ .⁣ .⁣ .⁣ .⁣ .⁣ #3dmodeling #3dmodelingandanimation #3dmodelingindonesia #3dmodelingmurah #3dmodelingservice #3ᴅᴍᴏᴅᴇʟɪɴɢ #artdirection #branding #cgi #cosplay #creative #cruella #cruelladevil #disney #disneystyle #graphicdesign #graphicdesigner #illustrator #pencil #setdesign #setdesignby #setdesigner #setdesignerslife #setdesignforscreen #setdesigns #sketchbook #sketches #sketching #sketchup #sketchupmodel nuthinbutmech sketchup_official sketchupuk

“Guardians of the Galaxy” 2013. After completing “Thor: The Dark World” I was asked by my Supervising Art Director Ray Chan if I would like a position on a new Marvel film called Guardians of the Galaxy. I loved working with Ray and the designer Charlie Woods so it was a no brainer. However on day 1 when I read the script (having never heard of the comics it was based on) we were all looking at each other like what is this. Nobody thought it would work, talking racoon and talking tree!!! We were all very sceptical until the VFX team showed a reel of how they thought Rocket and Groot would look and it was incredible. One of the first things they asked me to do was an animatic to show how Ronans birthing chamber would open. Tom brown was the art Director for all the Dark Astor sets, he had an assistant art director called Jim Barr working under him, Jim had already drawn up an idea of how the chamber would look. I took Jim’s drawings and devised how it would open and what the inside would look like. This was passed to VFX for them to work out how to animate the opening. We ended up building a closed version (lid for the tank) and an open version (teeth showing around the rim). We shot the sequence backwards. In the film it looks like to goo drains away but in real life we pumped it in and ran the film backwards to give its movement an otherworldly quality. The actor did well holding his breath as it rapidly filled up around him. Once again I’m using Sketchup and layout for the animatic and it’s at this stage in my career that I’m seriously going for it with the program. Pushing it and myself. I love this drawing.

Exciting news! I started a YouTube channel. Please go to the link in my bio or stories and subscribe. My aim is to regularly release new short videos that show the process of some of my past set design work. You can submit ideas for the types of videos you would like to see. Also each video will have the 3D asset available through my gumroad where you can pay what you like for them. It’s important to me to make this knowledge available to anyone and everyone who either wants to start a career in set design or who wants to up-skill their 3D knowledge. Check the link in my stories or bio for more info.
