BTS “Officer Down”

I’m loving Qmx‘s line of 1/6 Star Trek figures and when “Bones” McCoy came in I had to do a scene worthy of these nicely done figures. I’d been gathering props for something specifically Star Trek for a while and some of the best finds were plants meant for fish tanks! The exotic colors of these plastic plants suggested a technicolor planet somewhere…perfect for my Star Trek vision.

While the actual show kept planet design pretty “earthy” for the most part (there were a few wild color plants or rocks here and there) I wanted to reflect the feel of the shows “studio planets” while injecting a bit of a¬†fantasy/sci-fi magazine cover look.

Here are some behind the scenes shots of the setup and shoot, the final image can be found in the portfolio on the home page.
