Production Designer’s Notebook #005
Flint Lockwood’s apartment interior: Rough pencil sketch & final design.
The tiny flat that Flint Lockwood and his father, Tim, are sharing in San Franjose was an interesting assignment. The Directors asked me to create an environment that would clearly illustrate the two distinct personalities of the characters that divided the room in half: Tim Lockwood’s earthy traditional values that are fixed in the past on one side, and Flint’s limitless sense of invention and self-expression on the other. Tim’s side is 70’s earth-tones and Flint’s side is an 80’s science experiment. Neither one of them can relate to the contemporary world and neither one of them wants to. They are both living in their own happy realities, while coexisting side by side.
*There are small changes between the rough and the final that were motivated by changes in story, but for the most part, I was able to keep my concept pretty consistent from start to finish.
