1/4 Inch scale.
Media: Acrylic Paint, Task Board, Foam Core, Hot Glue, Miniature Bicycle and Plane, Toothpick, Sand, Artificial Grass
My team chose Steven Spielberg’s Empire of the Sun (1987). The film narrates a story of a young wealthy boy who later becomes a prisoner of war during World War II. In order to choose 3 still frames to represent the whole movie, I had to first understand the narrative and intentions. These three movie still frames were scaled down to quarter inch.
I was responsible for sketching and painting all three frames including the entire first scene, the mansion in the second scene, and background from the third scene, which entail to focus on every detail of movie stills as well as its content and historical background.
