“She devoted her life’s energy to creating the character of Joan Crawford. Always beneath that is Lucille LeSueur, and that became what was so fascinating to play, whether it was just under the surface, just in a gesture or a glance behind the eyes or whatever, that character was always there….She was a great beauty, but she really worked hard. I don’t know anybody that worked harder than Joan Crawford. To be Joan Crawford and to sustain this career and to create this kind of iconic mythology? There’s a lot to admire about her, especially when you think about what she had to overcome, where she came from….I’ve never seen her as being monstrous at all. We did all that research–I read the four biographies, her own books, and hundreds of interviews–and no one ever said anything but kind things about her. I don’t want to comment on mothers and daughters [and the relationship described in Mommie Dearest], because within any family there’s always a part of a relationship that no one outside can ever understand. But from everything I’ve read, it seems impossible that the woman was as monstrous as she was made out to be.“ –Jessica Lange
Attended an amazing workshop this weekend and met Ryan Lang and Nathan Fowkes !!! Two of the artists I look up to the most!
It’s so nice to hear their story and views on life in-person, after only knowing them through art-of books and blogs. Three years ago when I was applying to Sheridan, I met Nathan in Toronto and attended his workshop and classes. It really pushed me to study and learn the basics of environment design!
Terrifying but I asked if they could look at my work. Got some really nice critique! I’ve got a long way to go, many many many things to work on. I’ll definitely work hard with the advice given! 💪💪💪It’s the middle of third year now and I’m working on group film, a personal film (NomNom) and an unannounced indie game - I really want to make the most of my time at school. Here goes!
