So, I reeeeealy wish I had a picture of this, but this morning at 10AM found Carmen (one of our production designers) and I walking down Canal street with about 20 yards of 2″ thick foam. Now, this roll was about 3′ tall and 4′ in diameter, and I simply carried it on my head and walked the 20 blocks to the scenic shop where the sets are being built.
Now, this does sound/it was ridiculous. But in the middle of Canal street on a busy weekday morning? No one really gave me a second look. Ahh, New York.
But onto other things! A classmate of mine showed me the most amazing blog the other day – it’s called the “Sartorialist”. It’s just pictures of fashionable people on the streets. Now, I may not have yet figured out how to fashionably dress myself, but I do enjoy looking at good fashion – and I love this blog. It’s both fashionable, but extremely practical. It’s everyday people on the street, and I love the vibe. It’s maintained by a designer who was looking for a more contemporary, practical pulse on fashion, and he just walks around and takes pictures of people he sees. Amazing.
It’s also provided lots of great inspiration for our characters. See the picture I pulled off the site as an inspiration for “Fynn”, a small character in our movie who is a joyful, scraggley, devoted disciple of Rachael’s. I love it.
