Project Hiroshi Hayakawa (Week 3)
Last week, I posted some brainstorming and composition sketches I had done for this project. After toying around with several of the compositions and some different ideas; I began making the cut-outs, and planning the set up for the final video shoot.
This week what I have for you, are some cut-outs I did for the cityscape.
I set them up in a cute little city scene on top of Bristol board and took some pictures.
(Just so I personally could see for myself how each one of the cut-outs looked when placed together. :P )
In the end the cut-outs will be taped and placed on a human body/form and set up in a different way; but the change in the placement I hope will be a little one at the most.
This week I just wanted to make sure I had stuff built; and began the process/set up for filming.
Furthermore, I’m considering sticking only to the cityscape composition, due to the fact that I feel it’s the most interesting and dynamic of the three I did; though I did implement aspects of the others into it such as the trees for example.
I got together my cut-outs, my model/actress/human landscape (/poor unfortunate victim that has to lay on the floor half-naked as I tape tiny little houses, and trees to their body...); and so I got all this together and began to set up with the screen, some good 'ole fashioned duck-tape, a lamp (with some pretty extreme intense lighting), and I got down to work! >;D
Here are some photo's of my model without the cut-outs on her...sort of trying different poses for fun, and seeing the twist/turn of the body...in the end though I thought it was better I just stick with the initial pose I had planned on.
(Though my human landscape did look pretty cool compositionally all twisty and whatnot. :3)
And here's some more for you all...
Photos of the process/set-up!
(And yes that is a duck-taped lamp on my wall >.>" yeeepp...I was trying to see/make sure the cut-out's themselves would be able to show up through the screen...in the end I did the smart thing and borrowed a high-powered desk lamp, one with a bendable neck...problem solved! And no more silly stupidity on my part! lol)
____________________So...I leave you with this...thank God for duck-tape, strong light bulbs in lamps with bendable necks, and gorgeous patient half-naked models! :D
