Young makers from Sierra Leone’s Innovate Salone.

Today is the second-to-last day of Maker Camp and our penultimate show will be a good one. Actually there will be two good ones.

Starting at 9am PDT we’ll hangout with Innovate Salone’s David Moinina Sengeh. David will be joined by young makers from all over the world who will be sharing their impressive projects. Innovate Salone is Sierra Leone-based project to empower high school students to think of a problem and have them solve it.

Then at 11am PDT, we’ll explore the creation great looking special effects, props, and costumes with the pros—Fon Davis, Frank Ippolito, Harrison Krix, and Keril.


Learn these weathering techniques in today’s project.

We’ll be joined by visual effects expert Fon in his studio. He’ll show us pieces he’s made and share his techniques. Frank is a costume designer (think monsters and such) and Harrison is a prop maker. Estonian recording artist, songwriter, and crafty lady Kerli will also join us to show off her the costuming projects.

Today’s project will show you how to create special effects with paint. For something more advanced, check out Shawn Thorsson’s weathering effects project.

It’s all happening on Google+. See you there.
