or singing movies

Felt like submitting something fluffy and cute this weekend and what’s cuter than nose nuzzles? Those two would find any excuse to be affectionate with each other; always eager to express their love in any way possible. ;-3

I also tried a more minimalistic approach to shading this time around just to make life easier lol. Hope y’all enjoy regardless. Have a great rest of your weekend! xoxo

P.S. I updated my Johnny x Ash fict “Set Me Free” if you’re interested in reading. ;-)

I want to have fun. I’m not interested in being a serious actor because I think it’s boring, and I think we’ve got plenty of them. So, I like to do stuff that has a sense of humour, and stuff that doesn’t necessarily take itself too seriously. But equally I’m also now yearning to explore the dark side of life a little bit. The joy of the job is the diversity and the variety – and, if you’re lucky enough, to have the freedom to do different things. I don’t like the idea of a box. It’s nice to kind of defy the idea of a box —- Taron Egerton

Hey folks!

I’ll post some of the design work I did on “SING!” at Illumination Mac Guff between 2013 and 2016. In fact, I worked there as a storyboard artist most of the time but I got to help a bit the art department as well. I did mostly costume design and a bit of character development.

Here are some researches on Buster, Eddy and some Buster declinaisons and costumes (some of them unused in the final film)

OK, I'm annoyed.  I saw a post a few days ago that said that people shouldn't be upset by the fact that Emma Watson is auto tuned in Beauty and the Beast because all movie musicals are auto tuned.

So, this is one of the many reasons the casting of a big name celebrity with little to no musical theatre experience bothers me so much.  Audiences are starting to think that in order to be in a musical, signing talent is not a necessity.

Also, this person obviously hasn’t seen a musical that was made before the year 2000.  Really, even later than that!  More like, anything before 2010. 

Here’s a homework assignment for this weekend.  Don’t worry it’s easy.  Look up:

In watching some videos of these wonderful people, you will see how much work goes into the craft of musical theatre and movie musicals.  

And, it bears mentioning, that at the time, these actors were “big names” and they were box office draws based on their singing and dancing talent.  I’m all for bringing that back.  If Hollywood wants to keep making movie musicals, then let’s bring back the movie musical star!
