Lynnette and Gulnara, two familiar faces of the SSO, come together in this enchanting evening of French musical poetry. The latter tells the story of a talented yet hapless composer who finds his own musical style with the help of a mouse. A fun introduction to classical music combining film and original music for organ and piano, performed live by the Scott Brothers Duo.
His character is wonderfully conceived and drawn. The majority of the cast, including Bruce Willis and Edward Norton, had not worked with this director before. His mind boggling detailed overview and demands for authenticity are well known, and the movie and the acting performances are all the better for it. It has rolling fields, craggy ravines, points of elevation, forests, beaches and rocky coves. The filmmakers also wanted the physical production to be focused without big trucks, and no actor or filmmaker had trailers.
The actors staying in hotels nearby were encouraged to arrive camera-ready. This required that they don their costumes each day before coming to the set, already arriving in character. The aptly named Prudence Island, in Narragansett Bay, provided probably the most unique location for the production.
It did not have any infrastructure, just one tiny little store at which to buy things. The crew had to get local environmental clearance to set foot on some of the exquisite pebble beaches, and charter a ferry boat to get crew members on-site. All of this was as hoped-for; Anderson wanted cast and crew to have as communal an experience as possible in filming the story.
He also noted that another factor bringing the cast and crew closer together was their collective make-believe effort; whether they were alive in or not, each member of the unit had to work together to help the actors slip into their characters. It is all about the innocence and freshness of the world they are inhabiting, helping them to get into the mood of the piece.
This is one of the examples of an approach that today serious Directors need to take when getting into the ambiance of the piece they are filming. Those that do, like Wes Anderson, not only give an authentic feel to the time and place, but also help their actors get to the essence of the characters they are playing in order that they can relate what they are experiencing emotionally themselves to the audiences. The actors reported they were all entirely captivated by the story immediately.
A New Hampshire company, Tentsmiths who specialize in fabricating historical reenactment tents were brought on board. Everyone at Tentsmiths really got into it, and the tents they made for us looked fantastic! The crew proved inventive and resourceful, making camp signs out of sticks and logs tied together. Another artist made all the stick furniture inside that tent — all matching out of chicory, an entire suite! For the interiors of the houses they finally had to build a purpose built set which was based on the interiors of houses they inspected that while perfect for setting the scene were just too difficult to film within.
The children Jared Gilman and Kara Hayward won Wes Anderson over at different junctures of what was an extensive casting process. Suzy Bishop is misunderstood at home; she is among three little brothers, a father with issues, and a mother who is having an affair. He meets Suzy at a church pageant and, over a year, they create a plan to run away together.
Anderson wanted them both to explore their characters, to feel comfortable in their skins, and to understand who they were and why Suzy and Sam would do what they do. So, he assigned the kids some homework including banning them from using technology and emailing making them write by hand their letters to each other instead, as would have been authentic at the time.
