it's interesting, but the end product looks like the real thing. it's kind of like realism paintings, making a snap shot out of paint. though while good, if there is no indicator of how it was made, then it's like an inside joke. and i wonder what he does with all the models after. it is food based, and some he can't do anything with like ice.
Back in the 70's, as art director for an international firm introducing a new perfume fragrance, I faced a challenge. A fairytale was written about a princess having to take off in a space ship to another planet to obtain the " special ingredient " . At that time, all presentations were done using slide programs using a dissolve unit between two projectors.
The princess took off in her space ship, went out into space, traveled through a moving rainbow and landed on another planet. The whole sequence was done through trick photography elements, on my kitchen table. A graphic of a curved rainbow was reflected onto a sheet of flexible acetate that could be buckled, curved and moved frame by frame against a starry black background. Tiny holes in the black background behind which a mag flashlight was placed, gave the appearance of twinkling stars with the aid of a star filter on the camera lens.
A bit of dry ice, a wig head form, painted and glittered in green, a see-thru sheer scarf and a blue gel filter on the lighting were used to create a Marshan type monster, representing the foreign planet.
Tricking the camera lens and working in special effects animation is all great fun stuff indeed.
