In celebration of the 50th anniversary of “2001 A Space Odyssey” I’m excited to share some photos of a full-scale EVA pod that we’ve been working on. I started this project nearly 10 years ago with two gigantic 4 foot acrylic domes and from there with a lot of help from some really talented folks, during what little down time and weekends we have, we’ve gotten the pod to a point where the estimated completion date is May of this year. Currently the body-shopping on the body is nearly complete and the 3D printed parts for the extended claws are molded and about to be assembled (the reason I bought 2 printers). I love this movie for so many reasons and more so the Production Design. I’ve always marveled at the impact of seeing full scale props, both original and recreations, so this one will be a beauty to behold.
Many thanks to all Dave Wogh, Lou Zutavern, Jim Leonard, Andy & Charles and all those that contributed. More to come.
