Krampus kontinues...

All set up for the first part of my last scene, essentially the only lengthy scene in the Krampus PSA.  The majority of the short is quick cuts, like a commercial, leading up to this moment.  "Lets see what happens to this naughty girl on Christmas morning..."  Coal bounces out of fireplace to girl (rubbing her eyes with sleep).  Girl picks up coal which begins to heat up.  Drops coal which bursts into flame.  Xmas lights flicker and go out. Black.  Fireplace ignites highlighting the form of Krampus now huddled where the coal once was...

Its hard to see in the pic, but there is a bit of clay coal suspended on fishing line over the fireplace.  The fishing line is wrapped and tied to the thread spool which is mounted on a wooden dowel which is hot glued to my gauges.  Ive never used this method before, normally I would use wire to animate the coal, but the practical lighting on the Xmas tree created so many shadows of the wire that it was virtually impossible to photoshop out.  Hence the (hopefully invisible) fishing line.
