FMP 3: The Props

To further the narrative of my music video I also had to create props for the puppets to interact with.

The aesthetic that I was aiming for was that of a well lived-in world where everything’s dirty and used and none of it is particularly well looked after. I feel that I was able to achieve that, giving everything a layer of dust after it was made to give the impression that it has been in use for decades.

The fiddliest of the props was the head torch, worn by one of the creatures, that I wanted to be functional.

I used an LED to emit the light and by concealing the wires within the headband and keeping the battery out of shot, I was able to successfully fabricate the item. Despite my very humble electrical skills, I enjoy working with them and this project gave me another (albeit small) opportunity to learn a little more about the subject.
