First look at sets and props

Here are a couple photos I snapped late last night. It's not all locked down yet, but I needed to see what the set pieces looked like together.

These photos show the small scale versions of the tunnel, tracks, and car. (I've also been working on puppets, more mine props, and some large scale foam rocks, but that's for another post.) I was really happy with Edison style light bulb, though the wattage was a tad high. I had assumed originally that I would want more lighting coverage, but I love the way the single center light lets the cart speed in and out of shadow. This particular set is great because it's made out of real materials and can be shot from both sides and at a variety of angles. I would definitely make another were it not for the foot of snow stopping me.
