MONKEY PANTS MEDIA - SET DESIGN In films, everything which is not an actor, has been designed to help tell the story. Who is the character? What has been their life story? What is their emotional state? Walls can speak as loudly as characters, and to create someone’s whole world is a great challenge and a lot of fun. As a veteran of hundreds of makeover style shoots for national Australian television, as well as designing theatre sets and film sets, Production Design is a personal passion. Example: AVEC MES SOUVENIRS (Vinayak Radhakrishnan)
Production Designer: AVEC MES SOUVENIRS (Paris, 2013)
THE DESIGN BRIEF Transform an elegant Parisian familly home into the world of Pierre Laurent, an unhappy fiction writer who has been living a lonely bachelor life since splitting with his wife. One day, unexpectedly, she returns. WHAT WE DID Created a back story for main character, the autor Pierre. We determined that he has lived and travelled around Africa, which also then became the setting for his books. Used earthy African colours as the palette and created a world for our author to immerse himself in, surrounding him with books, African artefacts and old typewriters. We even created real book covers. When his wife Beatrice returns to Pierre, the home mirrors this with a return to neatness and order.  Special thanks to Virgina Field.
