You may remember that I worked as a set decorator on a short film project with my best friend, Nicki Manchisi, over the summer. I wanted to share with you some of the set photos from the film. The film is titled Woo Woo, and it is set in 1961 in Astoria, in New York City. I spent most of the summer prop shopping for the proper items that a working-class family would have in that time period. Researching was fun and so was shopping, but being on set and actually seeing all the work come to life was just over-the-top special. The film was shot on super 16 black-and-white film stock, which was recently developed and now in the process of telecine (being transferred to digital for editing purposes). All I have right now are photos, and I am anxiously awaiting for the final motion pictures!
Here are a few photos that I took of the different sets that we shot in.
Here are some photos of the actors, the crew, and the sets all taken by the set photographer, Lisa Weatherbee.
