11 10 2017

today my new book VISION, COMPOSITION AND COLOR FOR FILM will be presented at the FRANKFURT INTERNATIONAL BOOKFAIR. over seven years in the making it finally will be available in bookstores internationally next year march/april. the immense amount of work was one of the reasons for my lack of new posts. I will have more information about the book very soon, for everybody who might be interested. some more official news on a personal level, I will stop teaching at my university here in singapore the end of november this year, and I will move back to my homebase in manila. hopefully I will have some more time, inbetween several planned engagements, to write 2 more books. will keep you updated.

style 12.1

the following designs show a wide variety of styles. when it comes to the final look of a film the style should not be overwhelming, it should always be based on the needs of the story. and characters and environment should work together, the worst is if a character looks like an overlay. simplified characters need simplified backgrounds, in case you want to work with more realistic designs for both, don’t overload the backgrounds with unnecessary detail – make your character ‘read’. in some of the following posts I talk more about how to develop a new style.
