We were give 3 stories to choose from Alice In Wonderland, The Wizard of Oz and The Nutcracker. With 3 characters from each story. The script wasn’t the typical story as we know.
We had to script block and extract things about our chosen character, to help us develop our design. With the twist of not trying to create an adaptation that have been done before either within film or animation.
I went with Nutcracker a story I wasn’t familiar with ( I know how didn’t I even know about the Nutcracker Xmas story before 🙈 don’t judge)
Another reason I opted for this character so I wouldn’t have the preconception of his characteristics like the others stories.
Everything had to be designed by myself, makeup, studios lighting, composition for the camera, poses, and editing in photoshop 👀 hats off to the folks that use Photoshop that’s a skill in its self.
My extracted words from the script were:
• jet black hair in a classic comb-over style
• prominent dark brows
• wooden doll
• lilac fairy dust
• Chiselled features, and strong jawline
• soft glowing, glistening skin
• rosy cheeks
• deep set eyes
• tender expression • from wooden doll to human
