Developing a shot list for the scene that introduces the beloved Lisa-Marie and her children.  In her trailer, Lisa is making toaster tarts for her babies.  Set tricks:  forced perspective and sit-positioner.   All on our set in Kitely

One triplet positioned
-
I am showing character positions one at a time because I made these shots by myself, so I had to wear all the avatars.

Forced perspective makes the space seem larger than it really is, when the viewpoint is the front of the build.

-
If you don't want to distort the size of people in a forced perspective build, you have to put them all at about the same distance from the camera

Avatar positioned by sit-positioner

-
Sit-positioner in use
-
The sit-positioner is used to fix the position of an avatar as needed for a scene. It avoids the need for sit scripts in all the objects to be sat upon.  The sit script can be changed or adjusted to give the desired pose to the avatar.  
-
Here Lisa-Marie is positioned as sitting on the bed.  The sit-positioner is intentionally left visible to show its position. Normally, it would be set transparent or nearly so.  
 -
Sit positioner
-
The sit positioner is a prim with a sit script.  The avatar sits on the prim and the director or avateer* edits the prim to position the avatar as needed for the scene. 

*Avateer: One who causes an avatar to perform movements in a virtual world by typing commands or using a mouse, just as a puppeteer is one who causes a marionette to perform movements by manipulating strings.
