Bennie And The Jets
We provided set construction and set pieces including triangular light boxes and podium to form a Zoetrope dance floor Dojo for Elton John’s fictional character “Benny” to find her dancers.
Designed in Monochrome, shot in black and white and 3 x 4 ration, this film is true to the film formats when the track was originally recorded.

HOW WE DID IT
The triangular light boxes required some considered construction as they lean to be visible for top shots as well as being strong enough to support the weight of the dancers choreographed moves. Constructed using a combination of CNC components and hand crafted techniques.
The lighting team used RGB video tape along the facing edge to give a feathered effect behind the matt frosted acrylic. The video tape was controlled through a desk to providing the different animation sequences.
