inspiration for composition

the edge of love” is the kind of film that doesn’t inspire me as a story, but in terms of composition, colors, art direction, props, costume design is absolutely fabulous!!!!!!!! When I was watching, during some shots it was almost unbelievable how beautiful was the composition.

The shots from the top are incredible, I’ve done it on Jack Malchance episode 3.

the cinematography as well is stunning; normally when a film visually attracts me, is the cinematography and art dptm together having a great composition of textures, light and colors.

If I would show any reference of my ideal work as production designer It would be this film.


short film “Saturday”

During the last bank holiday, I was at Liverpool shooting Greer McNally’s short film “Saturday” in which I was the Production Designer. The film was shot in only one location, and it is about a jewish guy who wants to watch an England match on “saturday”, but following the jewish tradition, that on a Shabbat he can’t turn any electric appliances, the guy is not able to turn his tv on. A common solution for the traditional jews for the problem of electricity involves pre-set timers for electric appliances, to turn them on and off automatically, with no human intervention on Shabbat itself; but in the film the tv doesn’t work exactly work how it was supposed to work…..

Shabbat recalls the Biblical Creation account in Genesis, describing God creating the Heavens and the Earth in six days and resting on the seventh. It also recalls the giving of the Torah at Mount Sinai, when God commanded the Israelite nation to observe the seventh day and keep it holy.

Some of the making off pictures from the film:

inspiration for art direction

“Noel, o poeta da vila” shows beautifully the story of NOEL ROSA, one of the biggest music composers on brazilian history. Noel gave a new twist to samba, combining its afro-brazilian roots with a more urban, witty language and making it a vehicle for ironic social commentary.

His short life (he died at 26) allowed him to compose around 250 songs, and this film presents his life beautifully. The cinematography and art direction are AMAZING, and the scriptwriter is a friend of mine, Pedro Vicente, who is in a picture on the “behind the scenes” of jack malchance, as he is also an actor and will be one of the characters on episode 6.

The art direction is for sure one big reference for me, the textures and compositions of the film are great, the costume is beautiful!

behind the scenes
