Dropping Portraits Animation
Dropping Portraits
This animated GIF simulates how the portraits dropped in the frames, exposing the openings to the backstage area. It does not replicate the portrait lights going out or the strobes behind the walls which illuminated the actors from below. The picture frames were constructed from crown molding and glued to the walls. Wainscoting was simulated with a horizontal strip of molding and faux wood grain painting below it.
