Sets and Props

Listening to fancy electronic upbeat music, the WiredFly crew is working steady and neat to finish the set and the props. Take my hand as I guide you through these four pictures.

During desperate and confusing times (and in lack of time) we almost decided to skip the building of the lamps. But then – inspired by the cosmic winds – we took a giant leap on the path to a great looking film and decided to make the lamps; fast and relentless. On this picture above Jules has just finished the first table lamp. AND ISN'T IT WONDERFUL!!! Let there be light indeed! Unfortunately Ellen pointed out that the kind of lampshade Jules made wasn't invented until the fifties... …by a Dane! O, the humanity! But he is working on new lampshades and lamps. Godspeed!

Here's the finished woodshed for the backyard. There is a newspaper on the top of the wood, that is an actual polish '39 newspaper that we printed down in scale and painted. It is hard to see, but in the left corner of the shed there is a little shelf, where upon there's two bottles. These two bottles was made for our project The Agnostic Chicken by Mette Bülow Duus; professional glassblowers from Aarhus, Denmark. The wood is made out of balsa wood and Styrofoam, and dry-brushed afterwards.

Nina is painting the cobblestones with a dark wash, as Johan is trying to figure out where the lamppost should stand. Speaking of which – it took as many interstellar thoughts to figure out how to do the lamppost – but then Johan & Herr Strandgaard come up with a new design that is both easy to make and looking mighty good.

And here's the finished “Achtung” sign for the German side of the wall. It is painted with a light wash and then the text is written with a Uni-pin fine line 0.8 felt pen. Oh yeah!
