The Red Meadows (1945) dir. Bodil Ipsen & Lau Laurtizen Jr.
Jane Campion is often listed as the first (and as of 2017 only) woman to win the Palme d’or at the Cannes Film Festival. But in 1945 Bodil Ipsen, along with co-director Lau Lauritzen Jr., won the Grand Prix du Festival International du Film, the top honour at the festival, for their film, The Red Meadows.
Ipsen remains the only woman to have ever been awarded the Grand Prix, which was retired in 1954. It was replaced by the Palme d’or in 1955. As of 2017 Ipsen and Campion are the only two women to have ever directed films given the highest honour at Cannes.
New canvas I was working on last week. I wanted to create the summer atmosphere. Such a hot June day when the sun kindles the land and the air and all you want to do is to lie on the grass under the rays and have a sweet cat nap. It seems that poppies blooming in this time. I have a dream associated with these flowers. I want to see a huge field of red blooming poppies! Unfortunately I haven’t seen these flowers in the wild yet. But their energy inspires me even from photos. Do you want to sleep in the hot summer rays like my cats?
Once upon a time I got seriously into the idea of creating a RWBY OC…Then I lost the momentum and didn’t really do much with her…The only thing for certain was I wanted her to be called Tawny and i wanted her to be owl faunus…but NOT a tawny owl and she’d get really annoyed if you assumed she was a tawny owl from her name.
But anywho, long story short i did a crap ton of looking up names and creating team names I thought sounded cool when coming up with this character and I thought I’d share my little ‘database’ of names and team names for anyone making RWBY OC’s so my time gathering all this wasn’t a complete waste.
****NOTE - If anyone wanted to suggest more names I’d be happy to add em to the list.
