Behind the scenes,
working with Cliff Freeman, Baksin Robbins and Curious Pictures
making the Ice Cream & Cake stills for…
a 15 second stop-motion animation commercial
produced by Curious Pictures (NY).
Mary Brush flew in from California to work on a shoot with Indresano Photography.
This beautiful cake starts with some ice cream.
Stylist Assistant, Travis Grandon does the heavy lifting…
…While Mary smooths thing out.
A lot more goes into making these cakes delectable than you might think.
Attention to details makes all the difference.
The crew just couldn’t help themselves… This cake tastes as good as it looks!
Dreaming of Summer with flip-flops and frozen drinks!
Producer Michele says “Michael get that shot before it melts! “.
Studio intern Robyn in the wings to help with damage control: real ice, real water!
“Keep can upright”? When all else fails, bypass the warning label on the “Dust Off” for frosting up the ice.
Prepping for Shot 1: Check back later for the final ad!
Shot 2: It’s not easy finding a good pair of feet these days, just ask producer Michele!
