building the land

By spotogspindel | January 27, 2011

Or building the landscape is more correct.

One of the coolest things ever is to make a creative plan, and then watch it come to life. Below is part of the set-design for Fiddler on the roof. My little cardboard model.

And then the real thing being built! The guys in the front left in the picture are carpenter-students, and they´ve been building it.

It´s pretty big. Even bigger than it looks here. About 14 meters long and 4 meters high at the top.

It will be painted all black, and it´s all going to be so cool! I can´t wait to show your the whole thing, when it all comes together!

    This is really amazing. Is there anything you can’t do?!?! Can’t wait to see it completed. Wish I could see it in person. xoxo

    Andrew: Well, sometimes it´s scary not being afraid of anything… You think that one of these days, I´gonna over-do it, and the shit will hit the fan…
    But not on this one!
    😉 ha, ha, ha..
    Rubin: Yeah, I´m lucky on this one!
    I didn´t really know the Fiddler before I strated working with him, and now I totally dig him too 🙂
    Erin: I promise you, I´m a lousy cook! And I suck at sports…
    Bjørg: Thanks a bunch! 🙂
