An oven and turkey

For the kitchen set I had to create an oven and a turkey.
This is a big part of the film and so had to look just right.

I built the oven out of foam board and paint

I used acetate for the glass in the oven door

The turkey was created using tin foil, it was then covered in super sculpy and moulded into shape

More concept art and storyboarding

Hey, I have more photos to upload soon of set building and prop making which has come a long way, but for now I am going to show you a picture of what the main male character, Tobias, will look like.

Also the storyboarding for the film is complete; I am recording voice actors as soon as possible and hopefully will have a full animatic within the next few weeks.
The project is really coming together now and I am exited about what is to come.
More updates soon.

Tables and chairs

Here are a few more making of pictures, there are quite a lot so I’m uploading them bit by bit, but this shows more of the kitchens progress.
Nearly everything is made out of white foam board, super sculpy and paint.
More pics up soon.

Set building

Okay, so set building is a big part of my project, I want to show that the main character lives in a really disgusting flat, it’s just full of mould and dirt and grime. The main set of the film is the kitchen, it is the set in witch most of the scenes take place, it is the central location of my film.
The whole film is set within this small flat and so I wanted to put a lot of detail into the kitchen, this was the set I was most anxious to get created and so this is the set I started with, I felt that if I got the kitchen set right then I could create the other sets using this one as a basis.

Here are so making of pictures, I will upload more soon, but for now here is a little look at what the kitchen will be.

First i looked at my own kitchen for research

I then set about creating cabinets

This is a life scale drawing of the Sally character; I used it to measure the kitchens proportions

I then cut draws and counter tops out of white foam board and glued them to the pink pieces of foam

Painted foam board

Almost finished cabinet

The walls for my sets are going to all be created out of white foam board backed with cut pieces of wood, here is the back wall for the kitchen

Now with kitchen tiles added

This is the kitchen window where the set will get it's light

I created a sink out of cut foam board and white miliput

I then made the kitchen look grotty and dirty with paints and super sculpy

I created wooden blinds for the window and a fish was created by a fellow student

The tap for the sink was created out of super sculpy as was the kettle seen below. I spray painted the sink silver to give it a metallic look.
