Getting Creative with the Sets

Starting off on this film we had but a few sets: Some flat planes, a cabin, and of course our massive miniature mountain. Though simple, the flat planes have become the most effective. Forming canyons and ridges, they have served to create more interesting shapes as our team's accent steepens.

We rose the set to desired incline.

Shooting on green screen means more complex backgrounds may be added in post. Extra rocks break up the flat horizon.

We make sure the set is locked in place; They won't be going anywhere between frames.

The sets have proven most loyal. With all the lock downs we have pierced through them, their undersides look like pin cushions. Swiss cheese or not, they are still doing the job quite expertly.
