Local photographer/fine artist John Johnston and his friend/artist Scott Wallace (aka Arthack Studio), who have been doing projects together for the last few years, are out with their latest stunning output — a recreation of a famous Pulp Fiction movie scene using 1/6th scale dolls. “It all started as Scott was making sets and collecting dolls to shoot various scenes he wanted to portray,” said Johnston. “I had seen a show on Discovery Channel called the Alaskan Bush People. I said to him, wouldn’t that be funny to make a parody of that show in doll version? From the bush people to a remake of Nirvana’s ‘Smells Like Teen Spirit’ to a TV commercial, we have now remade a scene from the movie Pulp Fiction.”
It took a few months to build the props, sets and dolls. The filming itself took 22 days with 2 days for editing. Most of it was done with just the John and Scott, but they brought in friends when they needed more hands for moving dolls. They shot everything with a Fuji XT-2 camera and X Series lenses. The size and quality of the mirrorless camera was perfect.
