Here are the characters in their Lavender hues for the scene in Violet’s bar. (Violet is the barmaid in the purple pearls)
I’ve changed the look of the two girls a little bit since the animatic, and the blonde actress will have a wide brimmed hat.
No sound effects yet. Played it to Steve, he suggested I clarify what happens in the bar, and simplify it a bit. He said it made him think of Midnight In Paris, the Woody Allen film, which I like because I imagined that inside the bar is all 1930/40s and outside on the street is a more modern London.
Here are some of the evolving background characters for the LTM film (and some characters who almost certainly won’t actually make it into the film!) You can see the influence of Edward Burra’s paintings on a number of the designs.
I just got the “Making of Paranorman” book this morning. I usually wait to watch the film first before the making of incase it spoils the film, but I think this time I more excited about the film having seen how they made the puppets and the intricate sets.
I’ve been meaning to post my choice for the LTM pitch. There were so many brilliant posters with a whole range of characters, right from the moment I saw ‘Parties’ by Alan Fletcher during the briefing I wanted to use it. I thought more about it and considered some potential ideas with other posters, because there were some I also liked with more distinct characters, but I kept coming back to this one. It would be such a great opportunity to make a film based on this because I am a fan of his work, so I’m very excited about the idea I’m developing. I’ve done some research into his other posters, drawings and collages which has proven to be very useful in developing the idea.
I have this poster on my wall. I was looking at it this morning and realised how useful the design could be for Backdrop 1 of my set. Just goes to show how good it is to have images around you.
Above is the Japanese version of the Poster. I want to include trinkets round the face. Attached to the headdress I will make. And something of the expression in Medea’s eyes.
