Bio / Randy Neubert

My Story:

As a young child I was taking apart what ever I could get my hands on, when I was around 8 years old I built some of my first model kits and was amazed with miniatures . After graduating high school I got back into model building and started to build replica models & props for extra money. At this time I was trying different areas of the trade work, carpentry, plumbing, electrical ect, little did I know this would set my foundation for the future.  I was married  in 1999 and my wife and I had are first child.  In 2000 I opened VoodooFX a lighting company for studio model builders and hobbyist, as the years went by I was getting calls from independent film makers looking for models, props, sets and visual effects work for there films. In 2003 the company expanded into other divisions, animatronics, props and special effects work. The demand for "old school" physical effects work for film, TV, video, made it apparent to launch our own filming company, on January1, 2008 Mimic Films LLC was established. I feel so lucky to do what I do and hope to become a great film maker some day!

Weird science

Take a look around. Hey! Don't be too obvious. We may not live in Area 51, but the Bay Area has just as many reasons to vie for the nation's sci-fi central, according to Randy Neubert of Belmont, who admits to a science- fiction addiction. "Without a doubt, I guarantee you that the Bay Area has the best science- fiction community in the country," says Neubert, who is the mastermind behind VoodooFX -- a small science-fiction effects and models shop in the South Bay (www.voodoofx.com). "Partly it has to do with places like George Lucas' Skywalker Ranch and even the Academy of Art University. But let's face it, there are a lot of strange people in the San Francisco area." Strange is good business for Neubert. If you've ever had a strange desire to transform your living room into the cockpit of a TIE fighter, Neubert is the guy to talk to. Going on two years, Neubert's fully operational shop offers consultation on carpentry, casting, lighting, painting for props and models from your favorite sci-fi flicks. He recently finished up a (replica) of a 5-foot Doomsday Machine from "Star Trek." Neubert, more of a "Star Wars" man himself, has built a reputation for satisfying the demands of (sigh) " 'Star Trek' people."
