Exterior of the boarding house where Poe is trying to write a poem. The bay window with the light on is his study, and the bext shot will cut to there. As this shot tracks in towards the house, the raven does a caw just as the moon passes behind his head. There is a warm white compact fluoro inside the house. I used a 20 watt halogen globe in the street lamp that has to be switched on for each frame and immediately switched off once the camera gets the shot, so it doesn't melt the plastic "glass". I tried LEDs but they were either too blue, or too dim.
The raven wings just barely manage to fold up enough, and are still a bit big and bulky. I don't know if I can animate folding them on camera, when it lands on the bust, it was hard to do. Possibly a folded-wings version and a flying version would have been a better way to go.
