Another in an on-going series of sort-of-strange things about our industry.
So, you need a baby for your next video, but you don’t have any on hand, and no one will lend you one? Not to worry, we have you covered.
As a creative digital production house in Seattle, we recently did a shoot for a client in which a baby played a key role. Rather than find a real baby (let’s face it… they are pretty hard to work with) we bought one. Well, a life-like doll that looks like a baby. These are not your dime-store variety dolls. They really, really look like a baby.
These things would fool anybody.
And they breath.
We are not kidding about this.
The dolls come in all sizes, ages and both sexes. Black, white and in-between. There is even an Obama baby which looks just like him, only six months old. (And no, he isn’t wearing a tie.) They come with skin that feels real, hair and some are ‘anatomically correct’.
You can even order a “Little Baby Jesus” doll, which comes in hay-lined manger. Don’t ask us how they knew what it was suppose to look like, just take our word for it, the thing sure as hell looks like Jesus to us.
These life-like impostors are not exactly cheap, they can easily top $200. But, they don’t need a union card to appear in your video, and they don’t get fussy if they have to work over time. And they do great stand-in for the real thing.
