Have you ever wondered what it's like to create props for a living? Today's guest of honor is a professional craftsman with broad array of talents and a plethora of projects of all scales tucked under his belt (as well as some loose jeans). You've seen his handiwork on a few of our Destiny projects, including the Hawkmoon and Ace of Spades. I didn't have to go far to find him, he lives right below me.
This... is ZProps.
Welcome to Community Creators! Tell us a little bit about you and your trade.
That machine is almost as old as I am. Where can you be found online?
You have an impressive portfolio. What is a typical work day like?
Hey, I'm having a "lazy" day as I'm typing this. Out of your many projects, which has been your favorite so far?
How about the most challenging?
I can testify. That gun is bigger than is looks, it's been guarding our living room from intruders this past year.
Last question. Imagine, for a moment, that an aspiring young creator out there wants to pursue their passion to a point where they get to make props and costumes for a living. What would you tell them about the waters they are treading?
Sacrifice enough blood, sweat, and money to the prop gods and they may just shine their blessings upon you. And don't leave until you check out this video of Zander's Command Center prototype in action.
Class is dismissed. See you all next week.
