Reference, reference, reference!!

Its been an unforgiveably long time since our last post but that's not because we've been lazy. We've both been grafting very hard on elements for our short film project; Mule's Gold. To paraphrase animation legend John Lasseter - Reference is king!! In preparing the saloon environment we did a load of research to get a rich authentic feel. I screen grabbed loads of westerns and we studied them carefully.
A special mention must go to The Quick and the Dead. The set dressing and detail in this film were outstanding. Sam Raimi and co. we salute you.
