Just wondering if anyone has had much luck with sand and brickfilming. I've got a little project that I've been mulling over in my head for a while now, and I have a quick scene in a desert that needs realistic sand.
A few years ago I was doing tests using some fairly fine dirt that looked good, but that was for a western-style desert, which is often more dirt anyway.
Now I'm thinking I might need to look into some very fine grain sand, and maybe try to mix it with glue to create a cement that would look right without making it messy to work with. Obviously I wouldn't be trying to do a walk or run cycle on the sand, I would probably use a rig to support a mini-fig above it instead, and force the perspective.
Any thoughts on this? I'm happy to brainstorm and try a few ideas when I get closer to being able to shoot it, for now it's just something that's been bugging me.
