Jason Eaton
“I plan to go over the ideas and solutions to lighting or adding a little dynamic motion to models. I’ll show examples with lights in engines, cockpits, and navigation lighting. The Blade Runner Blimp was a much more intensive lighting and video challenge, so I’ll show how that was accomplished, what hurdles were encountered along the way, and how you can use third party vendors to get what you need, if your skill set doesn’t get you to where you want to go. I’ll also show the new solutions I’ve come up with for a model I’m building right now, that features motion, lights, and sounds – all controlled by modified custom programmed Radio Control equipment. I’ll have a Powerpoint presentation to show, and I’ll have a few electronic boards on hand to show what they do.”
