To shoot the spacewalk scenes a LED screen was folded into a box, the actor was put inside, and the light from the screen was used to light the actor. That way, instead of moving either Bullock or Clooney in the middle of static lights, the projected image moved while they stayed still. The “light box”, key to the spacewalk scenes was a nine-foot cube just big enough for one actor.
Thank you to Rita for the video link.
The infographics here introduce the directions we are going in terms of technical components and concepts. They cover components, rendering, and dimension drawings.
The majority of the project will make use of laser cutting while smaller components will be created using the 3D printer.
Walls of the maze - Acrylic - Laser Cut
Gimbal Base/Housing of electronics - MDF - Laser cut
Knobs - 3D printer
The public outpour of emotion over the death of Ryan Davis has been at once uplifting and devastating; amazing to see how many lives he touched but equally tragic the scope of loss. There has been a lot said, and much of it by better writers and closer friends - so I won’t go on.
What I will do though is finish the drawing he kept asking me to do. Sorry it’s so late.
