academy design


La La Land (2016)

Directed by Damien Chazelle

Cinematography by Linus Sandgren

I have been listening to so much electro swing these past few days I’m getting sick. I also know way too much stuff about Nikola Tesla now.

i’m… screaming i did a google search to see what the fuck everyone was talking about and that dress was created by an academy award-winning costume designer over the course of 12,000 man hours and accented by 2,160 swarovski crystals like… okay…


Best Picture Evolution” :  ↳The progression of Academy Award-winning Best Picture poster art, from early 20th century to present.

I’ve seen a lot of people complaining about Fantastic Beasts winning an Academy Award when none of the Harry Potter films ever did. And to that I say, “Really?”

We’re specifically talking about an Academy Award for Costume Design. For the most part, the HP films left the characters in their student robes. Simple and efficient, but nothing to really write home about. You have a couple exceptions of great costumes (The Yule Ball costumes, Dumbledore & McGonagall’s robes, etc), but for the most part we had student robes for 7 movies, and whole bunch of clothes off the rack from the Gap.

On the other hand, Fantastic Beasts is a 1920′s period piece with THOUSANDS of extras that all had to be outfitted in period appropriate wear). In an interview recently she talked about the usual rental studios not having enough 20′s apparel for their needs so she sent people scouring the globe to collect them. In addition to that, you have the gorgeous work on things like Graves’ coat, Picquery’s Phoenix dress and headdress, and Queenie’s coat, that was hand woven out of 30,000 feet of silk thread.

Guys. GUYS.

So you know how Jaune is staring at this statue in the volume 1 opening credits?

Right? Okay? And how volume 1 is when Jaune is going through this huge confidence crisis because he comes from this family of warriors that goes back for fucking ever and he doesn’t know if he can measure up?

And also how his sword, Crocea Mors, is a family heirloom?

Well, guys. GUYS.

The hunter in the statue is carrying Crocea Mors.

And that’s not the only similarity. Take a look at their outfits:

Guys, I’m pretty damn sure that the hunter being depicted in the statue is an ancestor of Jaune’s – obviously a highly famous and successful warrior who was such a great hero that he was chosen to be the immortal face of one of the prestigious Hunting academies. The kind of person who was a leader, an inspiration, a savior.

God, no wonder Jaune’s looking at it like this:

How the hell am I supposed to measure up to that?”

EDIT: Elaboration

We know that:

a) The Hunting Academies came about after the end of the Great War

b) Jaune’s great-great-grandfather fought with Crocea Mors in the Great War

So I think that’s Jaune’s great-great-grandfather.


@nikosarc suggested that maybe Jaune’s great-great-grandfather was the founder of Beacon and I AM ONE HUNDRED PERCENT HERE FOR THAT.
