PREMIUM – Premium: Watch Frank Ippolito Sculpt the Farnsworth Project!

For Tested Premium Members, here’s an extended sculpting session with Frank Ippolito where we discuss the details of the Farnsworth sculpture while the clay is still on actor Chuck Lines’ lifecast. We give Frank some feedback and learn about what references he uses to make Farnsworth look like a realistic old man. In the middle of the sculpting process, Frank also gets a visit from some of the directors who worked on Futurama to give him some feedback! To watch and follow along with the sculpt, sign up for a Tested Premium Membership by clicking here.

  1. same here…feels like being back on a 56k modem….hoping that the video doesnt do something wierd.

    I dunno if its just me but the last 9 minutes of the video seem to only show a green screen.

  2. The downloaded version didn’t have 9 minutes of green screen at the end. My internet sucks to much to enjoy streaming it from the player.

    Its nice seeing the speed at which frank works at when doing something like this. I know some people might not find it interesting. But I always find the speed and quality of peoples work to be interesting for stupid comparison reasons.

  3. I agree. I want more “slow tv” as some would call it. Show us more of the process, not just 5min cut together.

  4. thanks. I chose advice and downloaded the video. plays no problem.

    what clay did you use? how did you get it off the head cast in pieces? thanks fr the bass string tool tip, I’m going t make myself one of those.

    All around great video, thanks guys!

  5. I signed up to Premium and there was more than a month of nothing but Soylent Norm.

    These two new vids with Frank are exactly what I hoped and more from Tested Premium.

    Thanks guys. Nice reprieve.

    (I still love you Norm but…. y’know.)
