Obscure Object Films is very excited to be in production on jewelry designers, Langoliers, short film for their upcoming RED collection. Stephen Dirkes created a story that draws on many of Zon and Pamela’s design influences putting together the collection as varied as Karl Jung’s “Red Book” and 19th Century occultism to Alchemy, the principle location in Stephen’s tale for Langoliers is set in a 19th Century Alchemist’s laboratory.

Director Stephen Dirkes & filmmaker Viktor Vokjan

A fantastic art dept. was assembled to create our set, fabricate puppets, construct props, design spinning, animatable devices, etc, etc ,etc., with elements largely sourced from Stephen & artist Joel Voisard’s personal collection of tables, lenses, gears, 1930’s erector sets.

Art Director, Caroline Pham coordinated the effort and created beautiful design elements such as custom “wallpaper” stamps to integrate and unify the elements we were working with to the Langoliers collection.

Each of the 4 “props” or tables and stands on set functions as an individual set or world in miniature as the story takes us on a journey in stop motion animation through the Alchemist’s process of turning jewelry into magic.

Not only required to look good in super-zoomed-in macro detail, but each prop had unique animation requirements as well. Ioana, Jeff, Pamela and Zon all have jewelry making backgrounds that made the cutting, welding, grinding, fitting, etc possible, Go Team!

I love that my Water Lilies photo postcard, is still on display at Hayden-Harnett Boutique, in Greenpoint.

I recently visited their Boutique to style our Bullet Proof shoot. It was hard to choose, I am not a stylist..

I worked with HH on their swimwear catalog last year, & was inspired for the “Bullet Proof” Shoot by their “Blake” Dress, from the Hayden Harnett 2010 Spring Summer Collection I knew it would be a perfect fit for our ‘Spy’, & for the slick Red Ferrari!.
