In between adding the final touches like snow and fog to the exterior shots in my film I am working on adding some "last minute" details to certain scenes. I've made a fetus collection (mini sculptures) that show the different stages of human development before birth.
These fetus creatures will grow out from a seed via umbilical cord. Each time the test tube glows a new development stage of the fetus will be revealed.
The mini sculptures are made of "Fimo" some sort of plasticine that hardens when you leave it in the oven for 30min. Just before shooting I sprayed them with water to give them a shine and to make them look more realistic.
Camera setup for shoot
Øystein Moe and I shot them yesterday with the RED camera using lighting techniques to reveal them from the darkness.

I am currently editing and comping the shots into the scene with the test tubes. Creepy!
