LECTURE - FANTASTIC MR. FOX - Christian De Vita
A Fantastic Trip: from script to film.
The story process of Wes Anderson's Fantastic Mr Fox.
Christian De Vita was lead story artist on the Oscar and Bafta nominated Wes Anderson adaptation of Roal Dahl classic Fantastic Mr Fox. Working closely with Anderson in Paris, while the project was in full production at the 3 Mills Studios in East London, Christian had a studied insight into the workings of the director and his techniques, bringing to life each scene with his inimitable style. The lecture captures the process, from early concepts and thumbnails to completed footage, taking in the various stages of production, techniques used and quirky anecdotal events occurred throughout the two years spent on the production. Christian accompanies his presentation with plenty of clips from the story process, art department, live sets, animation as well as some behind the scenes footage.
"A strong concept, a great story well told, and an fresh visual look is what draws me in."
