Special effects model miniatures for film 'Bhopal: A Prayer for Rain' (2014) 

1/75 scale miniature of Basti village and pesticide plant for Ravi Kumar's 'Bhopal: A Prayer for Rain'.


Using traditional model making techniques and inexpensive materials the whole miniature was achieved on a low budget. The model was lit with 12V grain-of-wheat bulbs and LEDs for different colour temperatures, and shot on our workshop floor at Bray Studios, with our motion control rig on 35mm film.
