Dug this out from the college archives. I’d been casting army men in wax for my 3D Visual Dynamics class, and decided to film one of them melting in the hot plate (which was mostly full of already-melted red wax). Some time later I was assigned in a different class to make a short based on a proverb, so this footage came in useful.
I realized too late it’s actually “old soldiers” that don’t die. I also realized too late that everyone uses army men when they first start casting, but whatever!
