I thought that tonight while I wait for everyone to watch Episode 202, I might post the Moodboards I created for Paris. I needed visuals to pitch to everyone for the visual direction I wanted to go in
Having spent Season 1 trying to overcome the issues created by candlelight, I thought I would try to really use it this and the surrounding darkness, this time around. I wanted the rich colors to emerge out of the darkn. We have seen the Bon Bon colors of the Court of Louis XVI, a LOT. Not only did I not want to do it again, but research supported deeper, richer colours in the court of his father.
It was a potentially risky move as it meant possible lighting issues, in a season that was threatening to grind us all into 18th century dust. But it worked, pretty much.
These images are just to establish tone, colour and mood, don’t get hung up on any particular modern clothing or costumes.
Though you will see Jamie and St. Germaine costumes in here.
We all covered the walls of our department with these images. they were everywhere, keeping us on the right path.
