Color Models

After the client bought off on Maciek's storyboard which was posted yesterday, he designed models for each scene.

These are scans of color copies of his layouts.

The conceit was to follow the make of a film from inspiration through premiere.

This is the most important step in the creative process.

I have a vague recollection that these were painted in Photoshop, but I think that's a false memory -conflating this with a later project.  Most likely they're acrylic on paper.

The ultimate project was shot on film.


We'll be starting up a project using Hirschfeld illustrations soon.

I mention this because we were discussing the Disney Hirschfeld recently.  As everyone knows, they "improved" on the master so much that the style is almost unrecognizable.

For us, it's a point of pride to reproduce the illustrator's work as closely as possible.  Even in something as idiosyncratic as this.

Sure, sometimes we fall short.  But c'mon -Hirschfeld.  You can't do any better than that.

So tomorrow we'll post the final (if I can find it.) And we'll how successful Maciek was in applying his illustrative vision to film.

This production process is obviously for live action if the score is coming this late in the timeline.
