A new section has been added to the site featuring items for sale. These are all the original pieces and one of kind hand made creations. The page is found on the main menu and here. The sale involves some of the most popular lines from over the years.
Most of my creations are experiments to find out what the desired combination will indeed look like. Occasionally I go back and do a 2nd draft of a figure. The results are always impressive and vastly better than their first incarnation. I generally go back and redo the Bounty Hunter archetype first, as he is one of my favorites and often where each line starts
My daughter and I love to go through our YouTube subscriptions when she gets home from school. One of her absolute favorites is Max Glick / Mr. Cheezy Pop. He has a great Disney themed channel you can check it out HERE. I recently worked out an exchange with him as a surprise for her birthday. For my end I made him a custom Funko Pop style figure of himself. Here is the figure.
Here is a video where he talks about the figure.
Recently I was lucky enough to serve as the Art Department Director/Production designer on an indie film called “The Storyteller”. It was a real pleasure and it was a great experience being able to push my artistic chops in such new directions. I made many movies over the years and done hundreds of pieces and props but it was very fulfilling to be in charge of a department and to create the entire look of a film. In addition to crafting the look of the film I also helped find locations and made a the bulk of the films props. I met some amazing people and learned so much. I will always cherish the experience. Here are a few photos from the set showcasing my contributions.
In honor of the upcoming Celebration Europe (more like wishing I was there) I added some pages highlighting my involvement at Celebration VI & Celebration Anaheim / VII. I also added sub-pages showing my various panels and customizing classes.
Pages will be coming soon showcasing Celebrations II, III, IV, & V.
A recent avenue I have been exploring is the creation of action figures of you and your family. For years I was hesitant to offer this service, as it is very difficult to capture the likeness of someone you are very familiar in a way that truly captures them. But recently partnered with the fine people at That’s My Face to create custom 3D printed heads to offer this great new addition. I go the extra mile to match create a character with a back story that relates to you. Click through to hear more about this new feature.
I was selected by Morgan Spurlock’s production company Warrior Poets and Lucasfilm in 2015 to be featured in a series of short documentaries focusing on 20 Star Wars fans around the world. You can view the episode that looks at me, my works and process, and the impact Star Wars had on my life by downloading the Verizon Go90 app. The series is called “In A Galaxy”, my episode is called “Meet a DIY Toy Jedi”.
Sillof.com is the showcase of the pop culture art, sculpting, and custom action figures of Jamie Follis. The site was started in 2001. Sillof is most known for his unique combinations of characters into different eras, genres, and themes. These redesigns are intended to serve as commentaries on the various influences and timeless archetypes of the films. While these lines are often imitated today each line on the site was the first attempt by anyone online to create such versions.
