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.
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.
