In the holidays I bought most of the equipment I need for the figurines I will attempt making. I bought different coloured modelling clay and crafting tools. I have also made a timeline of events that will occur in the mystery video. I also researched how to create lifelike figurines and found that using aluminium wire to first make a skeleton/basic shape of the body will help and give a realistic bulk to the figure. I think I might do this except I might have trouble moving the figures, so perhaps only for figures that will remain mostly stationary.
I also realised I could fill in muscles/fat/bulk of the figurines with materials other than the with the modelling clay, such as with aluminium foil, other firm materials, etc, so I can save some clay for later use or for adding more detail in the future. However, I think I will experiment with the aluminium structure and different fillings of the figures to make sure that the figures will still be appropriate for moving around for the mystery video.
I also need to get cardboard and other materials for construction structures that will be included in the mystery film. I was also worried about unwanted indents in the final figure but I found out I could just wipe it down with a damp sponge to get rid of fingerprints/indents in the modelling clay.
I think I will go over details in the plan and timeline I have made.
