TINA GUO &ELI PRESSER,

APRES UN REVE

COSTUME DESIGNER/PRODUCTION DESIGNER

Director: Rich Ragsdale

Puppeteer: Eli Presser

Cinematography: Ian TakahashI

Work includes: custom built and dyed dress, with attention to hair ornamentation.  I also distressed the cello and built from scratch the tree that is featured in the video (it is not a real tree).  Made out of large dead branches and fabric,  placed together carefully,  I created a focal point on an otherwise barren land.

 

The Cello scenes were shot thru a camera obscura then combined with intimate footage of Eli Presser’s amazing puppet work.
