I'm in the planning stages of working up some YCDTOTV-themed scenes for the comedy vids that I shoot... and I need some assistance in trying to make the sets look "right." For example... The main link set would just be a set with a carpeted riser and a green screen behind it, with the original background superimposed after the fact.
So here's what I'm shooting for in terms of set pieces as well as wardrobe... Any and all help would be appreciated!!
--Ross' red vest and headset. Where would you buy a headset like that anyway?? And I suspect I could find a similar red vest on eBay or a second-hand store, if someone could point me in the right direction....
--Christine's long-sleeved white shirt w/red, blue, and yellow stripes.... The one she wore on several eps in Season 2. If I can find a shirt similar to this one... coupled with an actress with dark, curly hair.... I think the effect will really be vintage YCDTOTV. We'll probably keep the rest of the wardrobe modern, tho... Just to make it easier.
--I can't seem to find any place to buy a riser second-hand, not even on eBay.... Just something elevated about a foot off the ground to get the same feel as the link set. (Obviously the carpeting won't be exact.) Do schools ever sell off their old furniture?
--Ditto for a school desk, although I'm hoping that will be easier to track down.
--Finally.... Does the SlimeCom DVD have shots of the various empty YCDTOTV sets? Those would be INVALUABLE for working with green screen. Otherwise I'll have to scan the original episodes for brief glimpses of empty sets.
I'm already hunting on my own... but I figured if ANY people in the world could track down these items (esp. the wardrobe), it would be the die-hard YCDTOTV fans! So any help would be most appreciated!
All the best,
