UPDATE: Liberty and Justice: A Cautionary Tale in the Land of the Free is now available to watch here and on YouTube.
Wee Folk Studio now has its very own movie logo! Rob and I filmed it to put at the beginning of our soon to be released short film, Liberty and Justice. The movie is very close to being finished and we plan to put it online in a week or so. In the meantime, I thought it would be fun to go behind the scenes and show the process of making this logo. The sound effects you hear are just a tiny hint of Stellwagen Symphonette’s fantastic musical score for the finished movie!
To start, I made a mini me…
and painted a sign…
with colored pencil decorations.
I stitched foliage for the tree.
Luckily, I already had a little house from another project that was abandoned years ago. I found a gnarly piece of wood to hold up the sign.
I’m still a reluctant hot glue user, but it worked well to mount the sign.
To animate the growing flowers, I needed different sizes, from single stems to bunches with multiple blossoms.
We filmed the scene on the all black stage in the basement.
This LED lamp came from a dollhouse supply company.

Love it! Can’t wait for the premiere! Where is mini Rob hiding? 😉
You mean the Wee Folk Stud?
Awesome logo design, so true to your fabulous style. Looking forward to the film, I know it will be a work of your and Rob’s magic.
Fabulous! I can’t wait to see more!
I love the mini-you!
Love it!! Can’t wait. But…it seems it should have a triumphant roll out with searchlights and a red carpet and paparazzi, you in a sequin-covered gown and the stud muffin in a tux.
Ha, ha, it’s fun to imagine, but there’s no time for glitze. Though, the wee folk stud does have a tux.
Thank you for sharing your beautiful work with us .xxx Jane W
so cool!! Can’t wait to see the whole film!
Perfect! Looking forward to the film.
Absolutely amazing, Sally! You continue to, well, amaze. I was waiting for “you” to wave and say “hello! Come on in.” Love your studio.
I knew it was you! How you make a wood bead, thread and a few marks into an easily recognized person is amazing to me. I can’t wait to watch the finished film! 🌟🎬
That’s the sweetest little video.
I absolutely love all the detail, so creative…
