Set construction: Time lapse video

Unfortunately we don't have a proper video diary update for you all this week as we're currently working 24/7 (well, almost) to get the set finished in time for the shoot.

Needless to say, we're documenting the entire process and you'll see a proper video diary as soon as we have time to put it together. In the meantime, however, we've prepared a little sneak peak at the set, courtesy of our nifty time lapse camera:

Very professional. What sort of budget do you have for the entire shoot?

Wahey! Large wooden set boxes. Gotta love them!

Reminds me of the madness of putting together Skin Deep's set and tiling and installing the bath and shower. Took ages. Great fun putting it together though!

Good luck with the set stuff.

There's two parts to the set - the main module and a corridor. The module area will double as two different modules.

Yes, the process has reminded me of the stories you told about the SD set! There's sooo...much....work....to do....

Still, it's progressing nicely. I'll hopefully have a time lapse from the other end of the unit next week showing the set being dressed.

Just finished my hospital single bedded room, what do you think. Space is very restricted.

Cool - a bit hard to see what really is being built, but I guess I'll see it on Saturday wink

How much was the total cost for the set. Where did your supplies come from?

The art budget (which included set, props, costume, make-up etc) came to 31% of the entire budget. We were fortunate that much was donated in terms of time and materials to the production so it's not a realistic indication of what to expect, however it is true of what's possible with hard work and persuasion!

As for the source of the materials this was a mixture of bulk supplies from builders merchants, retail DIY stores, clever scrounging and
searching the internet. Ideally it would have be best to source most of the materials upfront to save time. However as some of the design was
taking place whilst we were building it was necessary to have a running shopping list, along side the to do list. This meant one or
more of the art team heading out to pick up things whilst others carried on building.
