here are a few still shots taken from the animation shots from my fish film.
This one has the flying rig removed.
The straight rod above the fish is a threaded rod/flying rig.
I needed more light so I put a homemade barn door on track light head. The shield prevent the light from casting shadows from my body on the set. It is just scrap wood screwed to the ceiling.
The bottom piece is adjustable to contain the excess light.
So far, I have shot about 600 frames. Holidays have slowed the progress some.
Go ahead, make a mess, have some fun.
