What is Making Love Between Storeys? Who made it and why? An intro to the blog series.
Love Between Storeys is a short film about two strangers stuck in an office lift. That lift wasn’t real. In this introductory section we go through what our chapters, Concept, Woodwork, Set Dressing and Lighting are all about.
A lift isn’t just any four walls, a door and some buttons. There needs to be a vision for the design and a plan to make it happen. In this section we go through the planning stages of making an elevator set.
What’s needed to build walls, a floor, a ceiling and doors? In this section we will take a look at what it took us to get the elevator standing and ready for set dressing.
In this section we will break down what we did to make the elevator set interesting, original and – most importantly – a set that answers to all the demands that the script has for the elevator.
In this section of the guide we go through the different types of light we had set up in the elevator. This is the absolute meat of the guide, as light gives the final stroke to any image, and determines what moods you convey to the audience.
