The theme to this set was a Longhouse Hostel. Here is a time-lapse of the build we pulled off just last April. It started off as an idea that moved on to a pitch that we won. Soon after we were drafting out floor plans and models to scale. The next step was building and we found ourself knee high in wood, paint and styrofoam. Our budget was $400 and having access to free MDF (compressed wood) we were able to nail down 'The Longhouse Hostel”
I was lucky enough to be nominated as the Production Designer for this project and am extremely proud of the team and what we were able to pull off. We all brought a unique skill to the build and our hard work surely paid off while shooting!
There were a total of 9 shows shot on this set under a tough time constraint of 6 hours per show (two per day) -
'Flaming Hostel' - (the title of my show) is still in post production but will surface soon.
Meanwhile enjoy this time lapse!
P.s - I chose this song as we all had it stuck in our head while building the entire week.
