I. Am. Pumped. And I will tell you why. A few weeks ago I showed you this awesome studio, and today we get to unveil the video that we shot there! My pal Chris at 25th Hour Films is an absolute genius of a doll of a human. And he’s to thank for this, Lovely Indeed’s first ever fancy professional film.
Whenever we’ve had videos in the past, it’s been me and Mr. Lovely, trading being behind the camera and figuring things out ourselves. But this was a whole different story, dudes. Chris knows what he’s doing (check out some of his other videos for mad proof, yo).
And now, for all you DIY fiends out there, check out the video DIY! It’s a super simple project but packs quite a punch.
A few details for you, if you like to read.
- tissue paper in varying shades
- chicken wire
- wire cutters
- zip ties
- photo backdrop framework
Make Time: 3 Hours
Cut a bunch of tissue paper into large squares or rectangles, at least 9″x9″. Set up your photo backdrop so that it’s at least 8 feet tall and 7 feet wide. Cut your chicken wire to your desired size (our backdrop was 7 feet by 5 feet). Attach the chicken wire to the frame with zip ties. Stuff tissue paper into the chicken wire in your desired color arrangement. We found it easiest to grab the tissue in the middle of the piece, pinch/twist in the middle, and stuff that into the chicken wire. Then fluff it up a little.
When you’re done, step back and make sure you didn’t miss any spots! Then get out your camera and have a ball. Big props to 25th Hour Films for helping us make this awesome video! xoxo
