Well, just wondering how most of you build your sets:
Fully: Real buildings
Just a set: Just a wall like set with no actual contents
I uh, never build real buildings because half the time I don’t need too and second it would take forever and third I don’t have that many lego bricks.
I only build real sets for show, not movies. (which I hardly do anymore)
You should only build what the camera will see, or else it’s a waste of time.
So far, I’ve mainly just used blue tape, but now I’m building actual sets. I built what I needed for an establishing shot, then I broke it down for the smaller, tighter shots.
I ussualy use either my pre-made LEGO sets (i’m the kind of LEGO fan who builds the model on the box then never disembles it), or, if i’m filming a scene in a room, I just use two corner walls.
If you build a full room as a standing set, you limit where the camera can go.
With OOT, each wall in the living room was removable (and if truth be told, they didn’t actually match up properly), and I only filmed what was needed.
When it switches from Rod talking with Mike & Geoff in the background to Rod talking by the window – completely different set. The chair in the background is the same one Mike is sitting on in the other shot. Oh, the magic of cinema.
Buxton, I was wondering, the newspaper in OOT, did you make it? If so I was wondering if you could send me one? (via email)
Yes I did. You can see the newspaper in all its glory at my “hidden references” page. The pic there is the actual one I used in the film.
what did you use to creat the newspaper? I love it!
He used Photoshop I believe, and then printed it out on a little piece of paper.
I tore up pieces of paper beforehand to work out what would be about the right size, then used Photoshop to create the pic.
