We are in buisness

SNG Studio is a production and post production house that produces visual effects both practical and digital.

We can provide After Effects, Lightwave 3D CGI animation, compositing and more.

We can also make practical miniatures, props, makeup effects, and creatures.

Our studio is located in Ventura California. Steve Neill has over 40 years of visual effects experience that ranges many mediums and many film and TV credits from Ghost Busters to Star Trek.

We are open for business and looking for film projects that need our services. Low budgets, medium and high are all considered.

Back to building models for myself

Back to models for myself and this is one of those holy grails if you are a super 2001 fan like I am. The paint job, interiors and lighting are all done.

Now I’m working on a backdrop made from 1×2’s a 0.60 styrene that will on Monday get painted with stars and Jupiter. Then the model will be mounted in the middle and mounted on my wall.

Next up tow old Lunar models.

No more Cochrane’s

The last Cochrane for a friend and collector. These are Doug Drexler’s original sculpture. Not a replica or fan made.

Last RC Submarine model

Just finished our last customer model build of a radio controlled of the Seaview.

This was our last client build.

I have one myself and have built several over the years for customers that realize their worth.

No more models for collectors

We are no longer offering model making services except to the motion picture industry. SNG Studio is only a VFX, post production, creature effects and special makeup effects studio.

We also offer After Effects, CGI, and composting.

Since the demise of the model building profession it no longer offers enough money to pay our studio bills. This is a result of amature modelers practically giving away their services and watering down a once well paying profession.

Although we are no longer making models for the public we will be making shows for our Patreon subscribers. These builds will be my own personal builds and I’ll show exactly how they are made, the tools and the materials you need.

We will also continue to show you scratch builds of props, creatures making and makeup effects.

“But Something is There” TV pilot

 

We had a very successful public screening of my TV pilot that took two years to produce. Overall I’m happy with it. We pulled off a pretty high end, high production value film on a very small budget thanks to all the talented people they gave tirelessly of themselves to this production.

Whitley Strieber was there and gave a speech at the beginning and read the first chapter to his latest book on the subject (a WIP) that really set the mood of the film.

What’s next? Well I am writing 5 more scripts. Not just talking about it but actually writing. I have two to go. The titles are:

The Dreamtime

Skullduggery

Strangers in the Night

Grasping at Straws

Rude Awakening

We are currently building a production fund raising campaign by assembling our talent and crew. We will go with IndieGogo and in addition to that seak private funds.

It is our plan to make 5 more episodes and release it on Amazon Prime.
