Adam Savage's One Day Builds: Studio Ghibli Diorama!

186 403 Näkymät

Adam's latest build taps into his love for Studio Ghibli films, a bit of modelmaking, and in-camera practical effects as he constructs a stunning display inspired by one of his favorite Miyazaki films. It's a slow burn of a build as Adam gradually reveals his sketched out plans; the result is a mesmerizing combination of light and movement that is beautiful to behold!

    • Hey Adam, maybe get a Philips Hue bulb with a diffuser for it when you get the new motor, so you can adjust the lighting remotely, I think it would look great with different lighting tones, or get some RGB strips with a diffuser, so you can set lighting patterns on it, would really open it up to modification, maybe add an arduino uno and have it cycle the lighting based on time of day, or weather?

  • SAVAGE! I met the guy who made the real Nausica jet plane! If you have not talked to him yet, you gotta check him out. Maybe talk to him! I met him at the Airshow in Chicago about two years ago. I ask him if he meet Miyazaki and he said "yes and he told me don't die." lol! Here is a video...

  • Love this display! These Nausicaa figures are rare and expensive now here in Japan. Came across one a couple months ago and nearly picked it up until I saw the price. Now you need a Giant God Warrior to display with her Adam!

  • I always feel so sorry for you when I hear you using your imperial measurements. Ever since Napier improved on Stevin's decimal notation, we have had a much better way of doing math that did away with fractions and made everything much more logical and easier. (The metric system.) So if I want to add 1 mm (millimeter) to say 12 mm it would be 13 mm. That is easy and logical, but if you want to do the same with your imperial units, it would go from 15/32" to 33/64" which is just a ridiculous way of measuring.

  • just a suggestion... electric motors are noisey .. put some rubber maybe 1/4 thick between it and the wood that should help . this is why good record players { like bang and olfson} mount the motor seperately then run a belt drive to the turntable

  • This video has more than 60 ads! It´s ridiculous.

  • Adam Did you consider using a flat screen TV to serve as the background? Then you could load day sky, night sky, day into night sky. And (with properly set up video files) use the TV’s speakers to have sound as well. No motor noise too.

    TommyTommy9 päivää sitten
  • You know! I was thinking if you had that same image of clouds projected on a mini pico Projector to make it show the clouds cover around the character with also some fog machine in the bottom half of the box, to show some atmosphere with the lights bright showing the sun coming through the clouds. That be so awesome!

  • Adam you should consider moving to metric system. My mind hurts every time you measure something.And don’t you think it’s time to change from the imperial system, the same system that British empire measured distance by counting the number of countries they had invaded.

  • I know some things are better when its mechanical or more "life like" when displaying something like this. But I would have totally went with an LCD panel, a raspberry pi and have the background just scrolling on the screen. That solves both the illumination and you even have the ability to change the background if you wan to. But it was still a great build to watch :)

  • Hey Adam, I grew up with a father who is a maker, but as such, never myself actually got my hands dirty. As a non maker, I just wanted to say how I love your videos and seeing how each of your tools that you have adapted and updated over time continue to serve you to expedite and improve your process. From mythbusters, to cosplay, to prop making. From tools, to jokes and everything in between. Thank you for allowing us to share in your experiences!

  • Are we not going to talk about how at ~34:41 Adam nails the piece to the work surface, and then tries to lift it a few seconds later. You can see that the edge is nailed down right when there is an awkward cut to..Adam having made a mistake (putting it in backwards).
