Set Design and Model Making - Batman Forever

Most of my two decades in the entertainment industry have been
designing and building models. For Batman Forever, I worked
as Visual Effects Model Maker and also did some Set Design.
1994-1995
Production Designer: Barbara Ling; Visual Effects Art Directors: James Hegedus; Model Shop Supervisor: Mike Joyce.

This was my second of three Batman movies. I worked as Visual Effects Model Maker on Batman Returns and as Visual Effects Set Designer on Batman and Robin

Eye Sign
"Eye Sign": This miniature sign is about ten
feet across. I didn't build the model, I just did
the 3D drawing.
A helicopter crashed into this break-away sign. Because the three copies of the faceted iris of the Eye Sign were made of tempered glass, it was decided to lay the parts out in 3D. I used the 3D capabilities of AutoCAD © to generate an accurate drawing of the 11 different planes of glass. We didn't use the third copy and it was used for a full size optometry store sign in a scene from Batman and Robin two years later. At that time, I made a new, smaller, miniature layout for a matching miniature of the store - the new miniature scene was canceled.
