Kyle Hamilton 

BA [Hons] 3D Design Modelmaking + Digital Art

Hey there! I'm Kyle, a Modelmaker who through thick and thin gets the job done. I have been a creative since I could scribble on the walls. Creating masks sparked my initial love for modelmaking. The bigger the project the better, I love to brainstorm and get a train of ideas going, an energy I hope to take with me towards the industry. The wild, wacky and sometimes disturbing are where I feel most at home. My final project took large inspirations from my surroundings, you can take a lad from the countryside but you cant take the countryside from the lad.

The Hills Have Eyes

"you explore the field on a dark night, when the earth trembles beneath you, looking on in horror, it looks right back at you..."
This project was created with the idea of being used as a filming miniature for a film or series. There is a hill near my hometown which every time I passed it, I thought "there is totally something under it" this was the full inspiration for the project and Im so glad I was able to bring the idea to fruition. Now BoB the eyeball can reign terror on the countryside, in reality!
