Summerland (2018)

Poly Sculpture

Polystyrene Sculpting & Hotwiring.

A hot-wire foam cutter is a tool used to cut polystyrene foam and similar materials.

The device consists of a thin, taut metal wire, often made of nichrome or stainless steel, or a thicker wire preformed into a desired shape, which is heated via electrical resistance to approximately 200°C.

As the wire is passed through the material to be cut, the heat from the wire vaporises the material just in advance of contact.

The depth of the cut is limited only by the wire length. Width of cut is limited by throat, if any.

Silicon Mould making & Casting.

Using silicon moulds is a smart way of making your budget go further. If it stands still it can be moulded – the possibilities are endless.

Your chosen item, once moulded, can then be reproduced (cast) many times over.

These casts are quick to produce and straightforward to paint.

Polyurethane Resin / Foam Spraying.

The system of 2-part poly spraying has traditionally been used to insulate large areas – e.g industrial unit walls & roof spaces.

Similar to a can of expanding foam but delivered on an industrial scale.

It can also be used to coat surfaces to make them waterproof and is used for underwater storage units & to inhibit moisture intrusion on a range of structures – roofs, walls, walkways.

All products used have Class 1 Fire Resistance.

Detailing & Finishing.

Surface finishes for sculpture can be either natural—bringing the material of the sculpture itself to a finish—or applied. Almost all applied surface finishes preserve as well as decorate.

Poly Sculpture & Foam/Resin Spraying to produce set’s for ‘Summerland’.

A love-story set in the timeless and enchanting world of Summerland; sun-dappled days spent outdoors by the sea over one achingly beautiful summer.

Fiercely independent writer Alice (Gemma Arterton) secludes herself in her study: occupied by her work but also profoundly lonely, haunted by a love affair from her past.

When spirited young Frank, an evacuee from the London Blitz, is dumped into her irritable care, his innocence and wonder awaken Alice’s deeply buried emotions.

Bravely embracing life’s miraculous unpredictability, Alice learns that wounds may be healed, hope and second chances do exist, and any woman must defiantly be two things: who and what she wants.

From Britain’s strongest new voice, the Olivier Award winning breakthrough writer/director Jessica Swale, Summerland inspires our audience with daringly honest and contemporary themes – an intensely emotional journey of womanhood and self-discovery, love and friendship.
