THE KING'S DAUGHTER
The Story, set in 17th century France, was to have a contemporary vibe in terms of the overall Production Design.
A modern veil wrapped around the Cinematography, Costume, Hair and Make-up design.
There were certain elements that the Director and Producers wanted to keep based in reality such as Instrument Design, Horse tack and Carriage style.
Prior to joining the project there had been a body of concept work comissioned by Producer, Bill Mechanic from Pandemonium Films.
One of the challenges was to create sets and settings in the studio that gave the 17th Century Palace the accolade it deserved without allowing it to be taken to seriously.
The King's boudior was one such interior where Louis could entertain his many female folk into the early morning and also have meetings with his colleague and confidant, Pere Le Chaise.
The Cavern set is an environment where Marie Joseph sings to the mermaid via her Viola de Gamba.
It was to be a magical and almost unearthly space where the two females built a strong relationship and in the end save each other.
