The set met my expectations visually, but foam core does not stand up to animation. It bent, curled and moved at the slightest touch. It would have been better to mount it on plywood to stiffen it.
I used tungsten lighting ('cuz that's what I have). Light coming from the direction of the moon was filtered with a blue gel normally used to correct for daylight. Lights from inside the room were bare tungsten. White balance was set in the camera for tungsten. I had hoped for a more dramatic difference between the 3200K (orange) and 5500K (blue) lights, but it wasn't as apparent as I had hoped. And yes, that is an incident light meter sitting on the stage at right. It has saved me hours of time setting up the lights.
One of the fun aspects of creating this set was the use of "found" items as props. The machine with the blue cylinders is actually a plastic cookie tray. The tall gadget to the left of the door is plastic packaging from a toilet tank repair kit. The piece to the right of the door is packaging for a piston ring compressor. Set building and shooting was delayed to fix the toilet. Also delayed in an attempt to fix the lawnmower engine. However the lawnmower remains broken and the animation is finished. Must keep your priorities straight!
