My pitch concepts for 'The Imaginarium of Dr. Parnassus'
Haven't posted anything in a very long time, but I'm really happy to be able to post this.
I had the pleasure of working with Terry Gilliam to create these pitch images. They were put into a leatherbound book along with some of Terry's sketches to get people enthused and get funding for the film. I had a great time doing these and it was fantastic to be able to work with one of my all-time favorite film-makers.
They were pretty fast turn-around so I used whatever would get the job done fastest- assembled in Photoshop, sometimes with rough 3d, photos and freehand painting, then sent for approval, and finally finessed.
I only worked on the film for a short time, but it was really nice to see that parts of the final film ended up being very close to these.
Thanks for looking!

Fantastic. He is one of my all time favorite Directors as well. I love knowing there is a guy out there making fantastic stories into films still.
Very jealous, would loved to have had an opportunity like that.
How did you get the gig anyway if you don't mind my asking?
The pyramid one is right out of the movie, as if they took that image and said, YES, perfect.
As an image, I like the last one the best.
Great movie, made me miss Ledger all over again. Seemed like Terry found his go to actor like so many directors do but lost him before they could really get started. Shame.

Thanks guys. Always takes a long time from the time you do images like this until you can show em.
This was kind of a dream job for me too.
Blitz - in terms of how I got the job - it was a matter of being in the right place, at the right time, with the right skill-set, and the right contacts. The fates align so to speak. Hopefully they will start to align more often!

The painting with the Jelly Fish popped up at the Academy awards when the film was nominated for I believe Art Direction.

Yeah that was kindof a cool surprise to see it up there on the oscars...
Ragnj - Terry had done rough storyboards for the sequences, so in terms of the content that came from him, the actual look of the things was up to me. It was a lot of fun...
