Inara was born with the intention of experimenting with professional light kits to suggest an enchanted narrative and romantic atmosphere. The 3D set made with cotton and paper cut outs, was placed on a multiplane to recreate the illusion of an iced lake. The puppet is a wire and wood armature puppet with magnets for feet, stuffed with wraps foam and clay, dressed in a hand stitched felt coat with metal reinforcements.
Final edits were made with After Effects to enhance the magical ambience and the winterly setting. Some of the shots were also used to experiment with photography and digital media. The result is a serie of 3 illustrations that reinforce the eerie aspect of the story and the suggestive lightning.
