We've been doing a film about Thornden park in studio, and this weekend we started this project where we have to take a clip from our movie and render it into three dimensional space in some abstract way. The biggest catch: We have to form whatever shapes we make out of concrete.
Since it's a studio project and clearly we never have nearly enough time to do anything, we're using Quikrete, not normal concrete. It works probably about the same, and it probably about the same pain in the ass.
The powder got in my nose and made it itch yesterday, which was ultimately not a big deal since I woke up with a cold this morning anyway. My partner and I are getting better at the concrete thing though. We even figured out how to cast a little box of something inside the concrete form so that it rattles when you shake it (our video was about noise so we were instructed to make our volume make noise). All the same, any advice for casting is overly appreciated.
I'm looking forward to feeling better and to Rem Koolhaas in a week.
