So we shot some footage on our miniature set which is being built about 400 km away. Over the next few days, I’ll be adding some more shots. Above is one of the clips (the flicker is from the large sunlight in the workspace – we’ll be shooting in an closed off studio for the actual film shoot), with some work done in Shake to average the bluescreen, replace the background, and add the foreground flicker to the background (with a multiplier).
This is shot on our new set of rails (which are 2 meters long). The rig will need some modification, since the rails are a bit tighter. The lift is also a bit unstable (still), but we think we’re on the right track – using 3 differentials driving 4 24-tooth gears along 4 rack gears. We should, hopefully be able to stabilize the motion completely.
Below are some of the photos of the shoot.
