Many of the Perplexity Pictures team members are involved in an upcoming feature film, Hipster! The Musical. For many of us, this is our first experience working on a feature length film, and boy is it an experience…
As Art Director, I am in charge of bringing the director’s vision for the overall look of the film to life.
This includes working with the costume designer, hair, makeup, set and props master. For a production of this size, it actually means doing some of these roles myself.
Suffice it to say, I have a lot on my plate. It’s coming along very nicely so far, but I still have a lot to do. Despite this, I thought I would try my hand out at the choreography created by Perplexity’s Sinjin Jones for the film. By the end, combined with a 5k that morning and babysitting twin boys that evening, I was exhausted. Physically? Obviously. Mentally? Probably. A feature film involves a lot of thought, planning, shopping, communicating, deadlines and subsequent stress. That’s also how you know the final product will be one everyone will be proud of.
In reference to the above video, the dancing for Hipster! is going to be awesome. Just as I am working my butt off on art direction, Sinjin and the dancers are working their butts off dancing (in a more literal way). Stay tuned for more!
