Desk toys do have a purpose!

Earlier today I was talking with the creative director on the current project about a staging problem with a particular series of shots. We threw ideas back and forth several times, but we still didn't have a clear picture of the staging of a key character in these shots. Even sketching the setting on paper didn't fully help.

Solution: toys!

We took several of my smaller desk toys and set them up to represent the key groups and characters we needed to discuss. To represent the camera position, I laid a little mini-bottle of hot sauce on its side. With these aides, we worked out the problem in a matter of seconds.

Vive la desk toys!
