This week the art department spent most of our time preparing for and installing the “Wapos Bay Street” set.
Usually sets are about the size of a big dining room table but this one is more than twice that size — our biggest set so far at Wapos Bay. We used two big tables and several extensions and background tables.
Jordan, our Armature and rigging person also loves an electrical challenge. He designed, wired and built the traffic light at the front of the set. The animator can flick a switch for red, yellow or green.
Stacia, our prop builder is also amazing at making roads, forests and trees look real. She spent an afternoon painting the set floor to look like road, grass and lawn. And the rest of us built and painted fences, painted houses, and made some smaller props to fill the space up.
We’re pretty excited about this set build because it’s the first time we’ve seen a whole Wapos bay street. We’re looking forward to seeing it come alive in the movie.
