First of all I created a new set, keeping some form of consistency. I added Graffiti on the walls, and a boarded window to make the scene look more like a back alley, rather than a main street.
The big Bin was made using green paper and card, with a recycle logo on the front, bits of newspaper was also added, then I just arrange everything to look a bit messy really!
I used the same bin bags as the previous scene, but added a few bottles, cans etc, these are hand made dolls house props, but obviously I want to keep a home made touch to the animation, so I haven't added too many. ( I was very tempted though).
Basically this scene explores well, the bins! The beginning of this scene shows a little bit of the aliens talents, using a broken bone as the prop , the alien uses his little metal probe if you like, to magically make it a full perfect bone! Not only is it showing more interest to the alien character but also it helps create more of a bond between the two, (i.e helping the dog out with a friendly gesture).
This scene is also a test of the aliens curiosity, and the difference between his reactions to everyday objects, to that of ours (or a dogs). I chose to use a bottle of fizzy pop, which the alien decides to drink....sending him a little queeeezy :).
