In making the Alicia videos, I have had to learn how to create a theater of mind for the viewer. For instance, in 'House of Boobs' I had to recreate a state of the art medical setting. One that would be convincing. I think I succeeded quite nicely, you would never have guessed I did that in my living room. Then there are the 'Real Housewives' series, where the illusion is that I am truly interacting with the vacuous broads from Bravo. Once again, through seamless editing the viewer is conned into believing I am right in the room with them.
Like I said, I'm having a great time with Alicia and her spectacular illusions. Right now Alicia and I are working on a hilarious video set in the dead of winter, and I have to recreate a snow laden landscape. I've been told that recycled asbestos, chopped up and blown all around with a big box fan looks just like new fallen snow. We'll see how that works out.
