January 22nd, 2016 Progress

 This post is a little late, but here we are.

We started the day making a low coffee table for the living room scene...

Made out of stiff green foam and painted with acrylic paints. The texture looks just like wood! I slid in a piece of clear plastic for the glass in the middle of the table.

And here are the completed products. There is still some touching up to be done on both these pieces.

 Sophia is nearly done with the solidworks designs for a stage, transportation and storage for the stage, as well as a lighting rig. (picture?)

Next week we need to start the stage building and add clothes and accessories to the armatures. We plan on making the stage out of luan wood, which was used on a mural project last hopefully we still have the leftovers. If not, school's right next to a lumber yard :) The hope is to start filming by February 19th.
