Welcome to my online portfolio

I have been a professional model maker since 1995, working either as an employed technician or as a self employed freelance contractor.

In March 2004 I launched my own model making company called ALL HANDMADE, based in Odiham, on the Surrey Hampshire border. Since then the workshop facility has moved to Maidstone, Kent and provides a wide variety of work including commercial advertising, exhibition work, still photography models, private commissions and feature film productions.

Services offered by ALL HANDMADE:  

*Model making    

*Tool making    

*Engineering    

*Wood work    

*Sculpture    

*Mould making    

*Puppet making    

*Prop and practical weapon manufacture   

*Set construction   

*Animatronics

*Animation rigging    

*Life casting   

*Prosthetics   

*Body armour fabrication

Model making is a highly competitive and constantly expanding area of creative design and construction, utilising the latest material technology and fabrication processes. If you have a project in mind and can not find anything like it in the gallery sections. . . it simply means I haven't made it yet.

Generally I work alone which means I can offer highly competitive quotes. For larger projects I employ a core team of trusted freelance professionals, each of whom are specialized in a wide variety of skills and techniques within their chosen field of expertise.

Together we form a professional collective providing the highest quality service, on time and within the budget. In a constantly changing and highly demanding industry I try to adapt my business to suit my client's ever expanding needs and requirements.

Testimonials:

"Your commitment and attitude towards your work is inspirational. 

It seems the pressure you take on with these types of jobs is so much more than just finishing on time and within the budget. You take on a lot more than that and it doesn't affect your output at all. Your work is of the highest quality with an immeasurable amount of care put into it. The level of detail and heart put into it all is outstanding." 

 Tommy Thompson - Animator/Director - MISTRAL DESPAIR - KATE BUSH - London

 

"Thanks for your hard work, you've been clear and professional to work with at every stage and have given us great confidence in both your crafting skills and your appreciation of detail." 

 Lise Ward - Exhibitions Manager - GAMES WORKSHOP LIMITED - Nottingham

 

"We decided to put 3 gargoyles onto our new development on Worthing seafront as a means of raising some money for the Mayor's Charities. Andre was brilliant in carrying out the whole process, particularly working out the means of transferring the plaster mould into a resilient concrete feature that could be simply fixed into the façade. The gargoyles now occupy pride of place on the façade whilst happily facing out to sea and are scaring the seagulls away as an added bonus!"

"André - we are so glad we went for life-casting the head. Absolutely the right decision and absolutely the right person to do it - thank you so much. Now, can we do another project?!"

Lucy Quinnell - Director/Proprietor - THE FIRE & IRON GALLERY - Leatherhead 

 

"It's a one stop shop from design to delivery, great communication throughout the build and a pleasure to work with like minded professionals."
