Here are some stills from the short film "Arturo and the Amazing Flying Pigment", which I shot over this summer.
The story is about a young boy and the sketch of a winged camel that comes to life. Leigh wrote the script and directed the film, my father Peter Leisinger built all the sets, the wooden masks and hands for the human characters and the puppet of the camel. My nephew Jan played the young boy Arturo.
I shot it on full HD on the Canon 5D Mark II, which was quite an adventure.
We are currently in post-production with the plan to complete it next spring. Watch this space!
