This project was a weird one! I worked with the folks over at Houses in Motion to help bring to
life a series of polaroids for the oxygen network show ""Dahmer: A Serial Killer Speaks".
Oxygen provided the actual photos from Dahmer’s apartment and the mug shots while
Houses in Motion came up with the creative to design a collage of polaroids to create a
portrait of the killer. The art department worked on the polaroids to make them look as if they
were just picked up from Dahmer’s bedroom floor. For that they got real film, grunged them
up with dirt, burns, and fake blood and even exposed them to get the classic imperfections
you often see around the edges. From there, we shot 1° rotations of over a dozen blank
photos. These could then be composited into the scene with the archival photos tracked
infor a wild result!
