Getting that mood indigo…

The video is a Zagreb animation Osvetnik (Dušan Vukotić, 1958). Filled with lilac scenes.

These Francis Bacon paintings are the tones I’m looking for in the bar scene. I want a brown/manila tone for the floor and bar with black lines. and purples for the characters and significant props in the background. Even the wine and food will be purple.

another Dušan Vukotić animation Koncert za mašinsku pušku (1958) this time in greys and browns. I love the style of this one and how the animation is synced with the music. Some brilliant visuals in there.

A couple more colour references. The Witches and The Milk Tray Man.

  1. looking good.. i like the inspirations, esp the russian animation..although the main guy in it walks like that alien character in American Dad, which I wish I didn’t know, as I hate American Dad.
    anyway, attention to details like this is going to give the finished film a great aesthetic.
    but what was it that motivated you to choose purple in particular ?
