Another shoot down, only 500 scene cards to go! (Maybe not that many, but a whole stack... Feels good to get some crossed off the list.)
The log, waaaay out in the mountains was home to several Gibbifer californicus beetles. This one came out and danced with us :D
Inspired by the rainy city gardens today, I came home with the need to add a Goth Garden to the grounds. Full of things with spikes and hordes of mating locusts and the occasional black dragonfly. Giant hornets. Berries of white flesh and flowers the color of blood. Yes, a place where one can go to cry black eyeliner into streaks as you sink into the mud in the pseudo-grave. Surrounding the pit are the blackened bodies of the dahlias, looking as though they’ve been dipped in tar, though the buds open into that beautiful crimson bloom.
More project insectae work. Impromptu roadside shoot. Here's some stills taken from the footage.
Now on to the editing. Placing and cutting and moving. A giant puzzle.
