SVCC 2017 Exclusive – K2SO Papercraft and Owen Gildersleeve Studio
This year we were able to meet up with Owen and Thomas from Owen Gildersleeve Studios again on their latest project for SVCC 2017. These fine papercraft geniuses were able to bring to life K2SO from the latest Star Wars film Rogue One: A Star Wars Story. Last year they were able to bring us an amazing version of Ironman himself (See Below) on the show floor as seen below which then ended up being boxed and shipped to one of the SVCC Organizers home and brought back this year to stand next to K2SO.

Moving forward to this year and looking at the K2SO unit a little closer, they were able to add the moving head piece with the help of a Arduino processing unit. The technology and hand crafted precision with these projects is such an amazing feet and requires a ton of talent bundled with even more patience. All weekend on the show floor there was people passing by, snapping photos, and standing next to in awe of this work of art.
This year we were able to get an audio interview done with Owen and Thomas and get some great still shots and some video of the K2SO unit (Seen Below).
