Set DesignAs I've always enjoyed building things, I've had a lot of fun with the sets I have designed for my videos.
Camp Fire Set
I landscaped this camp fire pit in the woods of a friend's back yard. This was a planned mixture of incongruent things: a couple of wooden planks, a downed tree and some logs, actual flat garden stones purchased at the nursery. This is a place designed and used by Fairies, after all!

|And here's my first group of fairies on-set.|
You can see how this set was used in this video here:
You can see in the video it was just the right size for my thirteen fairies to crowd around and have some chaotic fun.
For my Fairy Clubhouse I rented a historic log cabin and filled it with props of the sort you'd find in such a clubhouse at Camp Fae.

Use of Space, Color, Light
Here's a concept photograph for the "fairies on the bookshelf" segment in my short film The Visitors.
I wanted a look here that was both beautiful and creepy. I believe I achieved it.
