Production Designer’s Notebook #003

Whenever I start a new location design (in this case, a typical scene in the jungle) I do extensive thumbnails exploring different staging and composition before settling on an image to design in more detail. My goal is to search for compositions that capture the mood and feel unique to the project. The directors and I will sit and discuss the possibilities, choose a few that we like, and then take them further with color and texture.

These are were all done in one afternoon on 8.5 x 11 paper with graphite.
