So, I just found this forum by chance, and decided to see if maybe I could get advice here.
I am a film student, and in our next year we are doing a 10minute short film. This film has to be one of the biggest best films we could possibly make because as an additional assignment, we have to submit these films to a film festival.
As the cinematographer, this isn't really my job. But, its a school project, so it doesn't matter all that much. The more help, the better.
The film is based on these "robot's" that look like mannequins - Faceless, weird creepy bodies. Like
Looking at picture, if we can make it look just like that, that would be perfect! Probably both male/female versions.
So, I have no interest in making stuff like this. I make movies. Our class needs to make a wearable costume that looks like the picture above. There need to be moving limbs for the actors to run around in them.
So, any ideas on how to make such a thing?
That is a good question. That is currently unknown. We get funding from our college film program to make our films. I am assuming that we will be getting about $1,200 only. BUT, there have to be many other things we need to purchase, so basically its a small budget. I'm not sure how many of these mannequins we need, but ill assume 3. With a budget of like $200-400?
