A Little Camera Work: Unique Humorous Bobble-head Doll

by on Jun.22, 2011, under Uncategorized

I had just pre-lit a product shot for a shoot the next morning and was about to head home when my friend Andy showed me this amazing bobble-head doll that some drug company sent around to doctors as as a promotional item.  The opportunity to film it was too good to pass up.

The toy is a thing of beauty: it’s artfully sculpted and painted by hand. And it includes an IC chip with a lovely recorded tune…about vaginal itch! It must have cost the drug company a pretty penny. I certainly learned more about BV than I ever hoped to.

I think about the people involved in making this–particularly the song. Who is the unknown hero of a lyricist who found a good rhyme for “bacterial vaginosis”? How many takes did the singer need to get all the way through the song without cracking up?
