    [–] JUMANJI: WELCOME TO THE JUNGLE - Official Trailer #2 MrStevenRichter 8 points ago in movies

    I'll do it then!

    As the world's leading authority on Jumanji lore, I must say connecting this movie to the original was a mistake:

    The Jumanji board was last seen on a beach in France in 1995. So it somehow made it's way back to Brantford (The town from the first movie) since then? Did the two French girls who found it play it? Because if they didn't, then the game has not been "untouched for 2 decades"; it hasn't been played since 1969: it's been "untouched for nearly 5 decades"

    I'm guessing they are retconning the board making its way to a French beach and it just never left Brantford.

    Also the Jungle looks pretty friendly. There's a really close village and shelter everywhere. Why is Alan Parrish a crazy terrified survivor man? Go hang out in town, Alan. They have motorcycles and helicopters.

    I was not aware of such failure.

    Thanks! And yeah, I left the bottom open for further tinkering in the future. Lights, and sounds are something I need to figure out.

    I'm glad you liked that part, I wasn't too fond of it. (I'm the guy in the video)

    I work at a qusai special effects shop that does movie prop restoration and display. I do mostly sculpting work.

    Off to the beach with a boom box playing African drum sounds on a loop!

    I learned a lot of this stuff from youtube: Matthias Wandel for woodworking, Smooth-on's channel for silicone molds and resins, Tested.com's build videos with Adam Savage and Frank Ippolito are also really insightful. I haven't really gotten into write ups on this stuff myself.

    Thank you! (I'm the guy that built it) The support from reddit has been incredible!

    [–] Making a Jumanji board replica prop -Timelapse MrStevenRichter 2 points ago in videos

    Someone on the replica prop forum guestimated plans from looking at screenshots from the movie. Then there was an auction for one of the screen used boards and that had measurements for overall size and good images for reference. So it was about filling in gaps between those two and changing things by eye as I went. I didn't ever draw up formal plans.

    1. 7 months, on and off, on the weekends.
    2. It's a silicone (moldstar 20T) and then a casting resin (smoothon 300). And the clay is a non drying oil based clay.
    3. Putty for quickness, Dowel for a finished surface. If the putty is going to be hidden, I'd rather work quicker.
    4. I have some other work on my website: steverichter.org . Not a bunch of timelapse stuff yet, but that is what I'm looking to do in the future.

    Thanks for the questions!

    That's awesome. Most of my reference for making this Jumanji board came from a "carry" board made of resin and foam that was up for auction a while ago. It was made for when the actor just had to walk or run with it in their hands.

    No problem. I'm just glad to see this is blowing up here! thanks for the post and the credit!

    I glued them half an inch off and it was bugging me.

    I'm glad you enjoyed it! It was a childhood dream of mine finally realized too. I have drawings of the board from kindergarten.

    So many hours... Some would say too many hours. I say just enough hours.

    Thanks! Throwing the pieces around is just so satisfying.

    That's a pressure pot. It's a tank you pump air in to get bubble free castings in resin.
