This is going to be a fun, casual, photo/video shoot for an upcoming, Steam Punk themed art show:

The general theme is a sassy, surreal Victorian era tea party with steampunk elements interwoven.  The first shoot date is going to be October 15 at 2pm in southeast Fort Lauderdale.

Thanks for your interest and here is the original event description from Facebook:

*This is an art project with any proceeds going to charity. There is no budget so nobody is getting paid but we should all help take care of the make up artist and/or body painters for their product costs.

A tea party, some croquet, and steampunk fun. That’s it, low stress, high fun. Please no big egos, I hope everybody brings ideas and brings lots of energy to their characters which should be strong and confident if not sassy :-) but off camera let’s keep it real mellow and low drama please.

The 15th 1pm-sunset is set in stone. The final locations (somewhere in Broward) and the second shoot date is still up in the air. If you’re interested get me your availability Brian [at] Sandboxraw.com and we’ll figure it all out in the next couple days. The location is in south Broward, details coming soon.

THINK FANTASTIC, SURREAL, MECHANICAL & WHIMSICAL, Steampunk is not a real world type of thing so we’ll do the best we can on set to bend reality but a creative Photoshop Genie would be fabulous! We already have a good retoucher but extra help can’t hurt!

Mr. Jeffrey Scott was nice enough to let us use his work  “A Modern Day Love Affair” for some inspiration for this project.  Here is his Model Mayhem http://www.modelmayhem.com/1980 and website: http://factory1019.com/ and the model, Frankie C: http://www.modelmayhem.com/618929

I have a pretty good location in mind near Davie Blvd. and 95 so we’ll finalize that soon too but I’d still like to talk about a second location.

Metal, leather, glass, machinery, steam, time travel, goggles, and ray guns are sort of the cliche steam punk themes but I don’t want to get too hung up on all that.. We should represent the era, Victorian, but beyond that let’s do something different. Simple but heavy drama and the contrast between soft and hard are important to me.

I had a concept I wanted to do awhile back that might work, a Victorian tea party right next to some live train tracks. A steam train or steam engines in general would be fabulous.

I don’t know, let’s get some discussion flowing, please add any ideas or anything you think would help us!

Thanks! -Brian

Here’s a list of photos on here I put together and a youtube video that might help:


Of course good models, photographers, videoheads, and make up/stylists are going to be key but body painters and photoshop wizards could take this project to the next level. Some of the mechanical body stuff would be rad!! Drop me a line if you have an interest!

“In 2010, LifeNet4Families | Cooperative Feeding Program celebrated 25 years of service to the hungry and homeless of Broward County. From the humble beginnings of distributing a few peanut butter and jelly sandwiches to the homeless, to today’s provision of 1.2 million meals a year, the agency’s dramatic development has reflected both the growing numbers and the growing needs of the poor in our community.

As a totally private, 501 C3, federally recognized non profit agency, we are forever grateful for the compassion and generosity of the community and our supporters. The demand for our services is escalating in even greater numbers and we are overwhelmed and struggling to continue to meet all challenges in these harshest of economic times.”
