The director turned a rusty van into a mobile studio and now works wherever he wantsBy Pictolic https://pictolic.com/en/article/the-director-turned-a-rusty-van-into-a-mobile-studio-and-now-works-wherever-he-wants
A young American director Zach Bot (Zach Both) on Imgur gradually told how he turned an old cargo van into a comfortable mobile home. He explained his desire to live in a mobile home by the fact that cinema is initially a phenomenon associated with moving in space, necessary to tell stories.
Zach bought the van on Craigslist in the early 2000s, before that the vehicle belonged to an electrician from Vermont. Before starting the repair, the American tried to create an approximate view of the van in Photoshop after all the necessary work. According to him, as a result, in reality, he managed to recreate a surprisingly similar interior.
The new owner started with vacuum cleaning and rust removal, then repainted the van from the inside and glued all the walls and ceiling with thermal insulation.
All cracks, cracks and surfaces that could not be insulated, he filled with mounting foam.
His father helped Zach cut a vent in the roof of the van.
The decoration used boards that were given to Zack for free at the Cleveland church.
The vinyl floor in the van was laid on top of plywood. According to the American, YouTube videos helped him to do this correctly.
The interior layout of the van, including the bed and work area, was sawn and assembled from plywood. The mattress purchased at IKEA had to be shortened to fit inside.
Two solar panels were fixed on the roof of the van, to which lighting and a small refrigerator were brought. Also, LED lighting was installed inside.
The blinds for the rear windows were fixed on magnets. According to Zack, they are "super easy to close and open".
Many things in the van have several functions at once — for example, a stool is also a trash can, and Zak uses a white curtain as a screen for a projector. The table top can be extended — and then it blocks the interior of the van — or removed by attaching it to the back of the driver's seat.
Zak also created a detailed and free online guide based on his experience and posted it online.
