building the Dohyo
Monday, August 07, 2006
Leading up to our final few days of filming, our Art Department team has been working hard and challenged into builing a sumo dohyo set from scratch, where our biggest scenes of the film will be held.
Our confirmed location for this set is at the Limkokwing University College of Creative Technology's auditorium. And set building has been on-going since Friday evening. I dropped by this afternoon, and it's looking awesome.
They're still at the clay laying stage and it's going to take a few days for it to harden.
We've even got a roller to compact the clay to ensure it can carry the rikishi's weight.
Filming at the dohyo commences August 10th onwards. If any of you are still interested in being an extra as audience for this, please leave your phone numbers at sumolah (@) gmail (dot) com. Some of you who've emailed us, did not reply with your phone numbers. Please do. Cheers!
