Jacob and I just completed our first lookbook! We’ve been toying with creating one for a while and finally did it as a recommended supplement to a grant application. It’s a work in progress, to be sure, but it does seem to more effectively communicate tone and give a quick visual of the project than have prior text-only formats.
Creating the lookbook--a visual companion to the script--forced us to think in new ways about the movie we’re planning to film later this year. Not timelines, budgets, or dry artistic statements but the look, feel, and sound of a film that mixes an invented but believable culture and real cutting-edge genetics science.
