Bijou Prop Design

Over the summer I had the opportunity to work with grad student director Won Chan Sohn, on the prop design of the Bijou, an artifact and also the title of his film.

Since we had the luxury of time, we went through a lot of passes and revisions before settling on this final design:

A few weeks into the term, I went on set down at the ravine, and saw the crew shooting the scene where they discover the Bijou (the prop) at an archaeological dig. 

Chan had a professional jeweler craft it out of bronze and labradorite, so it had a very solid weight to it as I held it in my hand. You can't see it too well in this photo, but at a certain angle, the stone part shines a lovely shade of blue-green.
