SketchUp is undoubtedly the first tool I use to begin to explore a design. It is really quick to generate views and angles and coupled with a renderer and a touch of Photoshop is capable of creating very clear design concepts and proposals. It can be further exploited in the planning phase to set exact camera views with precise lens characteristics. Above is a quickly rendered concept for a scene in a prospective film depicting an Irish Boeing 707 at New York’s Idlewild airport in 1960.
I’m so, so pleased to have seen a near complete cut of Elfar Adalstein’s wonderful “End of Sentence” written by Michael Armbruster and directed by Elfar Adalstein. The film stars John Hawkes, Logan Lerman + Sarah Bolger .
OK, I’m a bit biased as the film’s designer but in my most humble opinion, Hawkes + Lerman’s performances are worthy of comparison with Newman and Redford’s ‘Butch and Sundance’ (Which, by the way, still remains my favourite film of all time!)
End of Sentence should be released early in 2019 and I urge all to go and see it.
