After a little more planning, we have finally begun taking test shots of the opening scene. The goal we had in mind was to have two groups of characters be shown as shadows in the forest. Each group would also have a specific color of light projecting their shadows.
We started out experimenting with different light sources. We figured out quickly that the only way to get the shadows was to shine the light through a narrow hole. We took the lid of a shoe box and cut out a hole. Skye then painted plastic wrap with acrylic paint and Mod Podge. We then placed the lid over our lamp.
These are some of the cut outs Skye made for us to use.
We are very excited to say that everything is coming a long. Things are not moving as quickly as we like. Building has become very time consuming. Now that we have starting actually taking photos, the process is moving a lot faster. As always thanks for reading and stay tuned! We will have more updates soon enough.
