The INTERSTELLAR Studio Models

Artist Marc Elkins came home a few weeks ago after viewing the film Interstellar, and immediately emailed me how impressed he was with the film, and the model effects. Why was he so impressed? New Deal Studios and Director Christopher Nolan decided to use real studio models once again to create the great effect they wanted on film… which they achieved very well! GREAT JOB TO ALL INVOLVED! Below are photos of the models in use, and a great write-up I used from that Karl Tate and Kip Thorne made…


I can only say the shots of the miniatures in the film Interstellar are fantastic, I didn’t realize it when I saw the film but I remember thinking WOW the ships in the film look 100% real and to my amazement they didn’t use CGI, finally some nice miniature filming and they look beautiful in the film, the lighting casting across the models is natural and that can make all the difference. I highly recommend seeing the film. Randy Cooper liked it so much he has taken friends to see it, I think he seen it 3 times now, its a good story, refreshing to see for a change.
