Margo from Bold Machines is a feature film project that is being developed from 3D-modeled characters – but not in the traditional sense! Rather than following large-scale box-office productions, Margo instead begins with character collectibles and focuses on narrative; the story itself about Margo, the main character, whose parents are lost on a space mission exploration.
Jose Alves da Silva is the 3D character artist that is crafting the characters to spec in ZBrush. These characters are then 3D printed, and painted by Adrian Yablin. So far a host of characters have been created for this exciting project, including Margo and her dog Eddie, Mr Walthersnap and his diver Kyrgstzt, and Tom Baker, an extraordinary mechanic! Even Margo’s scooter and sidecar has been modeled and printed for the project!
Once the characters have been modeled, 3D printed, and painted, they will then be transformed into a feature film with the help of a production company. What’s more, you can also download and 3D-print the characters yourself from the Thingiverse website!
