Yesterday we had to do a presentation on our film so far. Here are a few colour tests i did for the idea. I have decided to go with the idea of the exchange student coming to live in the town, however I am going to need to be very careful about how I end the film so that it is not just cute things that live happily ever after. I have a tutorial with Leonie later today and I am hoping she can help me with some ideas on how to approach this story.
How the film looks will be very important to me. I want the colours to be really strong and for the whole thing to be very atmospheric, so I have been looking at other films like Fantastic Mr Fox, some photography to get ideas for lighting and such as well as Beatrix Potter for her portrayal of animals . I also want the style to be somewhat reminiscent of picture books, but more edgy. Picturebooks for adults.
