@foncostudios prides ourselves in our work in stop motion, miniatures, and set building. This Brisk commercial featuring @ozzyosbourne combined our great loves and included our favorite diorama with the stacked apartment buildings he dives off of.

Here at @foncostudios, we love building sets and fabricating props, and are available for all your production needs. This is one of our favorites that we created as a prank version of a green screen set for a KFC commercial.

Epic collaborations with @unrealengine Planar, A Leyard Company] Orbital Virtual Studios] are transforming the virtual production world!!
Repost• Orbital Virtual Studios] Our extraordinary partner, Planar, A Leyard Company], launched their Virtual Production Initiative last year and A.J. Wedding, director and our Co-Founder, is quoted in their press. He says of VP and working with Planar, “LED display technology is taking the production industry by storm, enabling new techniques and processes that are transforming the way video producers create incredibly realistic action and transport audiences to new worlds. Having seen and experienced Planar's state-of-the-art LED display technology firsthand, and worked closely with their team on many shoots, I have no doubt that the company delivers the superior visual performance, support and versatility today's movie directors and producers need to create VP projects like we've never seen before." Link in our bio for the full launch video on YouTube! And press links on our Twitter, Facebook, and LinkedIn. With how fast it’s moving, you can never be following VP close enough, so please give us a follow wherever you are.

Here's a quick montage of all four characters from the recent CAT campaign: Sand, Gravel, Mud, and Rock. This campaign brought to life the most damaging elements on the job site using a combination of live puppetry, VFX enhancements, and virtual environments.

Did you know that #Beomni can dramatically enhance the safety of space-based operations? Astronauts won't need to suit up and risk their lives to perform tedious maintenance when Beomni could easily be controlled by an astronaut from a safe area.

    While I was visiting Fonco Studios, Fon H Davis showed me the personal hovercraft #GrantImahara built for White Rabbit Project. It's AMAZING engineering ... as well as terrifying. Watch:
    Yet another nerdy yule log, this time from our friends over at Fonco Studios and Marvel Studios!
    We’re about $2,400 away from hitting our $8000 goal. We wanted to share a little more about how these funds will be used. Mainly the amazing standing sets at Fonco Studios paying the crew and @christycarewmusic is also bringing in an orchestra to bring what will no doubt be an amazing score to close out this trilogy. We’ve learned so much from our years of making films and now with some really talented people helping us we know we’ll be making something really special. With your help we can totally bring this film to life and share it with the world! https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/lotm/legacy-of-the-mandalorian #starwars #trialsofthemandalorian #shadowofthemandalorian #legacyofthemandalorian #jetstreakink #davefiloni #georgelucas #lucasfilm #themandalorian #theclonewars #darthvader #indiefilm #indiefilmmaker #starwarsfanfilm #mandalorian #kickstarter #crowdfunding
    Adam Savage and Fon Davis of Fonco Studios discuss Grant's R2D2 replica, today on Tested.
    Grant Imahara's R2 replica is a thing of beauty. Fon Davis of Fonco Studios and I marvel at its construction and functionality, and reminisce about the R2D2 builders club 10 of us started while at ILM 20 YEARS ago.
    I had the pleasure of reminiscing about BattleBots, and specifically Grant Imahara's infamous bot Deadblow, with my friend and colleague Fon Davis of Fonco Studios. Definite Grantness in this precise and beautiful build.
    Such an emotional support robot. This is Grant Imahara’s; Tested filmed at his shop in Fonco Studios today.
    Adam sat down with Fon Davis (Fonco Studios) to talk about a very special film they worked on together right before MythBusters was created.
    Today on Tested my friend and colleague Fon H Davis of Fonco Studios and I discuss the LAST movie I worked on for ILM before filming MythBusters! Watch: https://youtu.be/VZyIWF1VftI
