This week, Adam gives a little insight into the planning process of making a show and reflects on a frustrating hitch in a recent One Day Build video shoot. We talk about why being self critical is a good thing, and the feeling of imposter syndrome. Will tells us about an awesome Star Wars-inspired concert he attended, and we talk a little about Halloween plans. It’s that time of the year already!
Adam is in awe of the 3D-printed armor designed and fabricated by Melissa Ng (aka Lumecluster). Meeting up with Melissa at New York Comic Con, Adam chats with her about her first cosplay and armor design process.
For this special episode of Offworld, Ariel is joined by Adam Savage and space historian Megan Prelinger to review and discuss the new film First Man. They answer some questions asked on social media about the film’s historical accuracy, its presentation of the Gemini and Apollo programs, and talk about where the film stands in relation to other space films like The Right Stuff and Apollo 13.
After a few weeks working independently, Jeremy and Sean return to Other Ocean to meet with Mike and Kevin to check in each other’s progress. Sean lays out a proposal for the design of the cabinet, and the shape of the software is starting to form!
It’s finally time to resume work on The Martian spacesuit costume build! In the two years since we last checked in on the project, Frank Ippolito has moved into a new shop and has been chipping away on 3D printing crucial parts to the costume. Adam spends the day at Frank’s shop to survey the pieces and start work on the helmet! (Thanks to Frank and his team for keeping this project alive in the midst of their busy shop schedule! Check out more of Thingergy’s projects here.)
Artist Jason Edmiston is another one of our favorite poster artists, and we take a look at his work and chat with him about his beautiful movie-inspired paintings, haunting characters, and a collaboration to refresh the original Jaws poster artwork for collectors.
The art and design of pop-up books fascinate us, so we were delighted to chat with Kevin Wilson and Matt Reinhart, the illustrator and engineer behind the new Harry Potter pop-up book. Kevin and Matt open up the book to show us how they collaborated on its paper craft.
We meet graphic artist Tom Whalen, who has designed some of our favorite pop art posters at places like Mondo and Gallery 1988. Tom talks to us about his design process and how he takes advantage of screenprinting to give his posters a distinct look.
In this Ask Adam Savage, WildKatt1 asks “You’ve said cardboard is a gateway drug to making. Do you ever find yourself doing a cardboard project either as a standalone or a precursor to something bigger?” Here’s Adam’s answer.
We review Astro Bot: Rescue Mission and Firewall: Zero Hour, two recent games released for PSVR that may be the killer apps for the platform. Let’s dive into a discussion about how these games take the platforming and tactical shooter genres, respectively, and enhance them with virtual reality. Plus, an interview with the developers of Vox Machinae!
