Mixing Faux Snow as seen in the parking lot scene.
*Faux (pronounced /'fo?/, like "foe") is a French word for false or fake. It is often used in English phrases such as faux pearls, and faux fur. When manufacturing faux objects or materials, an attempt is often made to create products which will resemble the imitated items as closely as possible.
Washing down the snow, We need to clean up our snow at the end of each shoot.
Our Rig that carried 5 days of snow material, we have a mix of tools that we use on any snow scene dressing. Generally on any set a combination of six or seven different products are used to create the right look and action effects for camera or point of view to make a wintery day or to converts a warm summer day into a winter snow day.
The trailer rig used to carry all our supply's, we had a base camp at each location.
We can transform any area indoors and outside to look as if it has frost or snow, along with bulk snow on the ground. There many different products that we use to get its to look like snow on the ground. We spray and cover objects with various coarseness of our non-chemical cellulose product or foam flocking.
