Trees, trees, trees


So, part of our recent work has been developing trees for the film.  Below, you can also see some of the grass tests, using fake fur, and a base of different colors.  The “trees” are actually bushes donated by our local cemetary (by a very friendly and helpful group of caretakers), which were on their way out to the trash.  We’ve stripped them, reshaped them, and added bulk with various spice leaves (ground parsley, coriander, and other green/yellow dried spices).  Bente (who you’ll notice standing in the pictures) has systematically developed a process for detailing the many trees that we see in the film.

Also pictured are Charlène Barré (responsible for a number of the props), and Sian Puckett (our new Spanish intern).
