Talented filmmaker and director Chris Heck (Wanderers Guild, Theater13) was set on creating his own version of the cosmos in the music video "Wild Woods" for local music group, Owl & Penny. He brought me on board as art director to make it happen. The otherworldly galaxies were created using Dr. Ph Martin's highly pigmented watercolors, hydrogen peroxide, condensed milk, and food coloring. This was all spread out over a large piece of glass with a dark cloth placed underneath and filmed overhead. Although the process was tedious, it came together beautifully in the end.
Please excuse our weak-ass BTS.
