So here are the bits and bobs/work in progress that’s been going on recently.
I’ve got some great stuff for the backgrounds from the 4D model shop. And today I’ve been trying various materials, and also experimenting with different hairstyles for the puppets. Diane (blonde and curly) is really starting to look like Laura Dern in Wild At Heart!
Stills from the video for the title song Crazy Clown Time. Killer album by a great man. Searching for the mood of the night fight in my film. My sister Romy recommended it for my project. It’s already helping a lot!
(It’s My Life. Performed by No Doubt. Directed by David LaChapelle. References to Whatever Happened to Baby Jane… et alia)
Inspiration for the mood and the characters. I’ve been looking back at some of my favourite films and music videos that contain some of the themes I’m thinking about, especially the strong references to an ‘old Hollywood’ feel.
I just watched Dumbland. David Lynch’s mini series. He did everything on it. He’s a constant inspiration for just getting things done, getting movies made and embracing things that might be a bit rough around the edges. Ants is my favourite episode!
